Suggestions from Redbrick people about headphones

Replacement earplugs for iPod/iRiver type devices

Doc: I like My Sennheiser MX400s. Got them in HMV, if I recall. They're not green, though.

Bubble: Sennheiser MX400 / MX450 if you're on a budget, but they don't last a particulary long time with heavy use. Etymotic ER6 are excellent. They go well into your ear, so take a bit of getting used to, but are worth every cent (Also do a search for ER6 vs ER6i, both are good, but have subtle differences, small mp3 player users go for the ER6i).

Marvin: Sony Fontopia earplugs. 50 euro from the Sony Centre but worth every cent.

Jammy: Etymotic ER 6 or ER4s. No doubt Koss portapro (they hook on your ears)

Czarak: Etymotic ER6i

Pixies: Sennheiser PX100

Seamusmc: Shure E2c

gizmo: Etymotic ER 6i Black. €78 from Expansys, pricey but fantastic

Big headphones that won't fit into your pocket

Dizer: Sennheiser 580 Sennheiser 280

Bubble: Sennheiser PX100 - excellent, comfortable, and reasonably priced, but leak a lot of sound to those around you (and come with a sturdy carrying case).

Jammy: Senn 280 pro Sony 7516 Ultrasone 650

Czarak: Sennheiser HD 25-1 II

Homerj: Beyerdynamic DT250s Sennheiser HD595

Kane: Sony 7506s, senn 280 pros or k271

Calyx: Sennheiser PMX40s, small-ish on-ear wrap arounds - about e35 - really great sound though

phaxx: Bose Around-ear headphones. ("Triport") - Around 150 euro, but very comfortable.

gizmo: Audio-Technica ATH-A900. $180 from Audiocubes. Closed back, fantastic sound and build quality.

druid: Sennheiser HD 595 & Beyerdynamic DT 880s. Much prefer the Senn.

Shops that sell headphones online (Japanese site but with super fast shipping and fantastic prices) (Not exactly the cheapest prices for the headphones themselves, but with free (and quick) worldwide shipping, they're a cheap spot to get replacement parts - e.g. filters for etymotic ER6/ER6is).
