Headphone recommendations

Would like to get some new good/high quality headphones. Anyone have any recommendations on what models they have or used, and how good you would rate them? Possibly a link for them as well. If so, please let me know. Thanks.

"In ear" or headset?

If headset, the most musical (and comfortable) phones I've used are the Sennheiser eH 350.

I keep a pair of Grado SR-125's at work. They are $150 and sound fantastic for the money. They aren't terribly stylish, but I don't care about how they look..it's how they sound. Note, these are an open air design...so sound does leak out. Since I listen at low levels at work, it's not a problem...but at loud levels somebody sitting next to you will definitely hear it. Also, these are 1/4" cans...so if you want to plug into a 1/8" jack (portable devices, computers, etc), you would need an adapter.

If you want to stay under $80, the Grado SR-60's are a great choice.

Not too concerned on the price. I mean, as long as it's nothing ridiculously priced though.

I used Sony 7506's when doing live sound for my band. They sound very good, sit nicely on the head, and are built like tanks. They have a good seal and offer very good isolation.

I've had my latest pair for 8 years, and they still sound great. around $100. The 7505's are good also, for around $80.

I've used all the headsets posted, they will all do the job nicely.

If comfort is important... be sure and check out the Sennheisers I posted, I've forgotten I was wearing them. They're not completely flat, I have other phones for that. The eH 350's sound like a very expensive pair of stereo speakers. (a slight dip in the mid/upper mids) Also extremely efficient, even a cheap mp3 will drive them nicely.
