View Full Version : Portable Headphones

Jul 22, 2012, 10:36 AM
I'm looking to buy $30-$60 headphones for my iPod or iPhone that are fairly comfortable on the ears and can be folded up and put in a coat pocket.

I listen mostly to classic rock, jazz and classical music that isn't sonically compressed.

Anyone with first hand experience and such?

The Koss PortaPro (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00001P4ZH/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=headfonia-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00001P4ZH) are great portable headphones that serve well for most genres and are cheap and extremely portable. Also, you can always grab a nice and cheap FiiO E6 (http://www.amazon.com/Fiio-E6-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B005HJWWW8/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1342975097&sr=1-1&keywords=fiio) amp along with an LOD (http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-L3-Line-Cable-iPhone/dp/B003UCESP8/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1342975097&sr=1-12&keywords=fiio) if you feel the iPhone/iPod's built-in amp doesn't work for ya.

Hope that helps! :)
