How long do your headphones last and what kind do you use?
For listening upon the Computer, and listening to the portable C.D. player, I use Sennheiser PX 200. They are light, comfortable, foldable and have good clear sound with a firm bass. Only the price is a bit off-putting - ours cost $100 here in Australia which is a bit steep for Chinese-made headphones. They are in use all the time here and have done sterling service over several years.
Beware: there are immitation Chinese-made PX 200's selling very cheaply on E-bay. From all reports, they sound terrible (to be expected) and they don't last five minutes (also to be expected).
are we talkin ipod, stereo or dj?
for my ipod I use nuthin but skullcandy they have some different priced models, but they last as long as you treat them really.
for stereo and dj I use technics.
dunno if that helps
I don't use them, but, my wife swears by the bose noise cancellation headphones...for cars, planes, trips, etc...they are the best, from what she's said.
