Forgot to mention, when I bought them they were like $30. Can't beat it. I've had the same pair for nearly two years, with listening -every day-.

For relatively inexpensive and portable headphones I like the Sennheiser PX-100. Sennheiser lists them as $90 but I bought mine several years ago for under $50. They fold up like sunglasses, come with a case, very light and portable but high quality.

I also own in-ear headphones and higher end Sennheiser headphones. The latter are not very portable (and are large) and the former I don't like to use when walking around due to occlusion and because I can't hear traffic or bikes or people.

As a reference point I have always considered Sennheiser to have a similar sound to B&W and Grado to Klipsch. Pretty sure Grado is making some fairly affordable headphones these days.

i just pulled out my little senns and i don't see a number on them, but they are the ones with the clear and black case that fold up like you describe and the cord wraps around the clear part.  i really enjoy them and use them often.  i'm a firm believer in senns, also owning the 490s and the ones used by electronic dance dj's.  i forget the number on them and they are upstairs.

you really can't go wrong with senns and like you said, you can find them for good prices.

I have the Shure SE535 earphones. Sound Isolating with triple high-Def MicroDrivers for really big sound with rich bass. Detachable cables.

The sound is heavenly.

The bad news is the price.  >:(
