This last trip home was the first time I really used my Creative Nomad ZEN USB 2.0 60GB with headphones (usually I just plug it in to my computer at work or my car and listen to it for real.) Well, it's no secret that the Creative headphones really suck. I was thoroughly dissatisfied.

So I go looking around for better headphones. I go to nomadness.net and look for suggestions. There's a few, and I go down to this site and now I want to spend $3,333.00 on a headphone amp (I, however, will refrain from the extra $555.00 for the stepped attenuators--I mean, that's just insane). But more realistically, it looks like there's several decent headphones for about $60 that I would be more than happy with. But man, read a few minutes of this audiophile stuff and you start to get sucked in.

At least this site says my audio player itself has decent sound.

I've been happy with my iPod's headphones, but I'm not half the audiophile you are.

I thought about buying a set of iPod headphones, but just to mess with people. I think it'd be fun to have people assume I've joined the cult and then open up my jacket and there's a Zen. Muahahahaa.

Sennheiser

definitely go with Sennheiser.

I can vouch for these. My roommate has them, and they're amazing. $100 right now (were on sale for 80 a few weeks ago, so can probably be found again). Amazing sound. I could probably bring them sometime (when I'm back from Scotland) if you want to check them out.
