    Looking for pretty good, compact headphones

    I'm looking for a decent pair of headphones (not monitor headphones), NOT in-the-ear style. Just something simple, preferably compact.. and something with good sound to it. Nice bass, and crisp treble. Maybe something under $60. Any suggestions?

    Thanks Ern!

    I assume these are the headphones in question?

    These look nice too, and are smaller it looks like:

    One more model:

    And PS, all three of these have great reviews on Amazon. I think I might go for the PX-100, due to their compact size.

    For normal listening and high fidelity, go with open cans. My friend owns some Grados that sound killer.

    A little OT, here, but is there anything better than the SR225s for the money?

    The sony's are nice, in the 50ish range.

    Sam,

    For portable phones, you can't beat the Koss Porta-Pro. They sound great with just about any source. And if anything happens to them, you send them in and they either fix them or send a new set.
