    The hood
    Pioneer hdj1000s when I tracking stuff but I rock a pair of in ear sonys when Laying in bed.

    The headphones weren't originally for the iPad if that's what u meant. Any who, it's a great investment for some quality in ear hp when u just want to listen to music while surfing the interwebs.

    Beats aren't nice, they're over priced skull candys. Try Etymotic, Ultimate Ears, Grado, or Westone.

    Grado 60 and/or 80s. I prefer my 60s over my wife's 80s.

    I've used these Bose on-ear headphones for probably a little over two years. I know there are a lot of people who probably don't like Bose and would say they could find a better product for the money, but I've really enjoyed these headphones and love them.

    I've used these basically every day since I've owned them, and I've never regretted purchasing them.

    Thanks! I had the studios and sold them when I found out I was getting the pros. Strange but the battery powered noise cancellation in the Studios made me dizzy. Happens to me with the Bose QC too. Glad I wont have to worry about that anymore!

    I had studios as well and the pros are a lot better - they surprisingly cancel noise in normal conditions (not in an airplane) and they dont leak sound at all whereas the studios did. The only thing you will notice right off the bat is they are not as comfortable as the studios because of the weight, but after the 1st week, you'll be set in them for sure.

    I am actually looking forward to the sturdier (heavier) build... one thing with the studios is that they were so plasticky (love making up words) that i could never rest my head back for fear of breaking them (on long flights and road trips)... heard the pros were tough as nails! so im not too worried about them not being as comfortable... i am not sure i love the coiled cable design but i can always just order the cables from the solos (pause button, mic, and volume controls included!!) down the road

    Yup.. quite pricey! I got lucky and received the studios as a gift.. then my sister's boyfriend got the pros but hated the fit and traded them for my studios straight up... so i basically got the pros for free! =) happy happy..

    I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 448.


    Awesome bang for the buck! Cost me 55 euro's. Can also use them on the road etc, as they are CLOSED over the ear, and leak no sound.

    The have a great review on

    Sennheiser PXC250's, folding noise cancelling on-the-ear headphones. Just wore them on a 12 hour flight from Newark, NJ to Tel Aviv, Israel with most of that watching the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy - extended edition ripped down to my iPad 2. Headphone batteries (noise cancelling gizmo) ran out before the iPad 2 did. Very comfy headphones, this is my second pair from Sennheiser. Great travel companion.

    Me three!

    Don't use them with the iPad too often as I've only got about 3GB of tunes on there, all imported at the lower aac encode. The P5's are used with my iPhone most of the time with it's higher rate encodes & lossless files. I <3 B&W.

    It was highlighted on another forum that there's a serious lack of good headphones from British manufactures, yet we are renowned for making such high quality Hi-Fi gear. it's good to see B&W tap into the headphones market but we need more British makers to get in there.

    I've considered in the past the P5's but i'm no fan of on ears, if they come out with circumaural "P6" I will seriously contemplate getting a pair.
