    I will add the Grado SR-60 to the recommendations. A great set of headphones that is still the best buy for less than $70.

    Sennheiser 280 Pro's, and 580 Precision are both great for computer use.
    I agree..to this I would add the Senn 595. I still use my Sr-60

    Ooooh. The Grado SR-60s. Great sound for so cheap. Very different from the Sennheiser HD595 sound, but still very clear and warmer...

    The SR-60s might not be as sturdy as the indestructible Sennheisers, but then, they sound like shit compared to any open headphones.

    I'd spend atleast $60 on heavy headphones... Otherwise go for small ones, or you'll loose out on sound (you get what you pay for).

    I would have to wrap the grado in velevet or something similar. That bar just is not comfortable (even bent). Then again for the few minutes I use them the sound was pretty good - much better than the hd280 (which I can't stand). Still I'm very happy with the hd555. If I had to do it all over again I think i would stick with the hd555

    Re: Youre PERSONAL recomendations for head phoens

    I've been very happy with Sony MDR-V600 headphones. Very comfortable for me for long periods on the computer or watching movies at night. Enclosed so the noise doesn't wake others. A little more bass heavy than Sennheisers. No structural problems after years of use, but the material on the pad does wear out after 3 years of heavy use.

    Don't purchase blind! Take these recommendations and listen to the phones yourself. I almost bought a higher priced Sennheiser set and after listening to them, I decided I liked the Sony's a lot more for sound and comfort.
