I've been looking for quite a while now, reading reviews and comments about headphones. I am needing a new pair, the iPod ones are fine sometimes, but leaving them in for awile starts to bug my ears. I originally purchased the Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones (Link) but from the minute I put them on I couldn't stand them. The noise-canceling feature was useless, making the music I was listening to sound like it was coming from an out-of-range radio station. So I returned them and put up with the iPod ones until I could find something else. Well fortunatly I did, unfortunatly though I found two pairs the Band and Olufsen ones (Link) and the Shure E2c's (Link) At the moment I am probably going to buy the Shure's, but I need your advice.
