best headphones for a school bus

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 

hey im thinking of getting some cheap headphones for the school bus ride. Here is a list of what im looking for.

 

Portable

Comfy enough to wear for like 30 minutes

cheap, under $70 about

good for pop, r&b, little rock, alternative, and hip hop

preferabley on ear so its smaller rather than over ear

blocks out some noise

a managable cable! No huge 9 foot long cables

And not iem or earbuds

STYLISH!!! Im not gonna wear something where everyone will instantly start puking because its so ugly

 

Right now im considering the subjekt tnt or the sony MDR-zx600 or sony v55

 

 

Thanks for your answers!

I wore the Koss Pro 4AA's a few times on the bus in high school...yes really. Let's just say it's a "conversation starter"

 

Not sure how I made them work out of a CD player, but I wonder how they would sound now properly amped.

How are the 4AA's they look nice and have a good frequency chart, did they seem specific to highs, mids or lows? I was thinking about getting them for at home use.

XB500s? Though I'd pretty much give up my music on school buses and try to catch a nap. It's loud, but for me it's all a constant drone anyways.
