    I need some new headphones for wearing around everywhere. Around the house, playing pc games, and for working out/jogging.

    I have to use my store credit from circuit city, so my choices are pretty limited. Since I wanted some small, portable headphones with good sound quality I have been considering the Koss PortaPros and the Sennheiser PX100. Any other recommendations?

    Here is the selection of headphones I'm limited to. My price range is around $50.

    By the way, I just got through with a pair of crappy v300's. Worst. Headphones. Ever.

    It depends on what youre really looking for, but the Sony MDR-EX71LP is a very good pair of headphones at just the right price. They provide noise cancellation and have suprisingly good bass. However, if you're exercising, every time the cord is bumped, you will hear it. As long as you do not plan on using the headphones primarily for excercise, they should serve you well.

    Haha... don't get the RCA wireless headphones. I bought those off ebay for 20 bucks. I'm got them today and am trying them out right now and for dicking around their fine but not worth 70$ plus tax. HHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 70$ ... someone's banking on that deal.

    POS's most definately.. .but wireless. :big grin:

    :ugh: Or you could get the Shure e2c and get better headphones for 1/3 the price. Or etymotic ER-4 and get WAY better headphones for the same price.

    Thats a killer price on the e2c, id go for that. Though they might not be ideal for jogging (I havent used them, but i assume the microphonics would make it very annoying. Anything more than walking is pushing it with the er-4.)

    The Koss Porta-pro or senn px100 would be great, and probably better if you plan to do much jogging with them.
