Any low impedance headphones will work, and you can get a clip on mike. Something like these Grados might work for you .
Grado's wouldn't be ideal for 'on-the-go' listening, nor would any open headphone - they let too much sound in.

Im trying to understand whats up with you and your headphones.Do you like them or not???You have been asking the same thing over and over again , if they are good or not, it doesnt matter if reviews says the are sh@#,as long as they sound good to you, you shouldnt worry so much.No offense intended by the way.

True they are open and let noise in, and they bleed a little, but their sound quality is on target, they are comfortable and compact. For me, I like to be somewhat aware of my surroundings when out and about. You can actually have a conversation with these on, just down the volume a little. I found the Senn HD228 not too bad for a closed version, but the sound quality was just not there.

was making fun of the botched reviews.

you really think the dr dre beats are any good?

you really think my crossfade have anywhere near the fidelity of my sennheiser cx 6? nope. but it has better bass response than any other headphones ive ever listened to. and iv'e listened to a LOT of $300+ headphones, none over $500 though. also no where near as good sounding as my velodyne 18 inch sub, but hey...

the crossfade have better fidelity than the beats and bose headphones, not as good as hd 555 i immagine, better noise cancelation than the hd555, less than the bose and beats but no battery needed, they are way more comfortable, better looking, better build quality, and sound way better than either, they are $130 on amazon last i checked compared to $300 or more. for electronic music which i listen to alot, hip hop as well as any other bass heavy music, the corssfade are the best ive ever used headphones wise. for fidelity for acoustical music with actual perfect mastering, i'd go for the sennheiser. for portability, sennhieser...but the crossfade work well with the in line mic on my iphone. the kevlar gold tipped cord is awesome.

honestly i don't get why the reviews always say the beats and bose are the best, it's retarded. ive owned bose's most expensive headphones, sure they have alot of bass SPL, are pretty portable and comfortable, but in reality for what you pay with battery inconvenience, they are complete garbage, i have never bought bose sound equipment aside from an in line mic with my own money. do not bash me as people have endlessly back when chat existed.

After searching a bit more, I changed my opinion.
Now Im considering the Denon AH-D1001 or a HD280, because they have more bass.
The HFI-450 are still in my mind, because of its price and I like the way you can turn it inside. But I didnt find anything about how it sounds.

What do you guys think?

Loved its looking and heard only good about it but didn't find it in stock anywhere. 1100s is $120.
$95.
$99

Yeah, I would be looking for noise cancelling, and I don't like the 'ear buds'/in ear things, they feel funny to me.

The Razer Barracuda HP-1 look like good ones as the Mic was removable, but the plug is a no good for an Ipod it seems.

The SteelSeries 7H look good also had have the retracable Mic that really hides it well, plus it does have the 3.5mm plug that could go right into an Ipod. It does have a split plug for the Mic and Speakers, but that isn't much of a problem and the cable is short to. It then does plug into an extension for a longer cable set up.

The SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset for Ipod/Iphone looks good also, but I am not sure how it would work with the computer. Has anyone had experience with this one?

^ Again, look for a real pair of cans and slap a mic on it if you want the best experience. For noise isolating (not cancelling, it's inferior in sound quality) headphones, I suggest the Denon AH-D1001 or Audio Technica ATH-M50.

Ultrasone HFI-450 $95.
Sennheiser HD280 $99
HD 280 pro have more sound attenuation then any headphone I know of, more then IEM's even. They have a 32db attenuation, which is the same as the earplugs we use at work. Lots of earplugs are only 30db.

As a contrast, most IEM's are around 26db attenuation. If you're playing music on them at home, you will not be able to hear anyone shouting at you unless they are right behind you.

However they are fairly neutral cans. I think that can be a good thing, but if you want heavy bass you will have to do some EQ.
