Well, what I'd recommend to you is the Numark Red Wave. Now, it does NOT come with a hard shell case, but you can find one to fit it on eBay for around 20-30 bucks. It's very stylish (but it's love it or hate it style), comfortable, portable, has a detachable cable, has excellent bass, great overall sound, and best of all, you can get a pair off of Amazon for a little over 70 bucks. In my opinion, it's a bargain. Iv'e owned a pair for about 6 months now, and it's so fun to mess with the equalizer on my laptop and see what kind of sounds I can get from them. Hope this helped.

Just checked them out, they look pretty cool. Does it need batteries to use for it to have the good sound?

Doesn't take batteries (passive noise cancelling) They are just a good, sealed headphone. They sound amazing even coming straight out of an iPod with the right equalizer (I'd recommend the Electronic setting) And they are cool, indeed. Or at least, that's what I think. Definitely check them out.

Well, the Crossfades have less bass extension, and for me, they didn't fit as good as the Red Waves. Also, the Crossfades are significantly more expensive, with near same sound as the Red Waves. Just some things to consider.

Pretty sure it has a standard 3.5mm plug, like most headphones...
