    Headphones Advice!

    I've recently purchased my first iPod and I'm looking into dumping the stock headphones and going for a set with higher audio fidelity. Can anyone recommend some decent headphones to me?

    I'm looking at spending less than $50, but my budget is as high as $80. Portability and base are big factors to me, but I'm not too picky when it comes to ear buds vs. over-the-ear models.

    Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    What a weird shortening...

    That link is to Tweaked Audio's earbuds. Great sound, good price.

    I figure this is as good a place as any...

    A pair of headphones I have for over 3 years, of heavy use mind you, finally broke today. They were Sony MDR-G45s. Cheap, behind the neck, single cord headphones used with my MP3 players while doing stuff. I think they were $15 when I bought them.

    I'm pretty sure they're repairable, probably just have to re-solder the connecting wires inside. Not sure if I want to though. They have been through a lot and they should have their peace.

    I got my brother some Audio Technica AT-HT400 for Christmas. I tried them out and they sound amazing. They were 30 bucks. That said they may not be the best for an mp3 player because they were quite large.
    You realize the odds of that happening is like the same as getting mauled by a polar bear, and a regular bear on the same day.
