I've got someone on my holiday wish list very much in need of a new pair of headphones. I know they would prefer something over the ear, small and light, and closed. I was hoping for something around the $80 price point, online or in-store is fine. Easily driven by iPod is important.
This person listens to mostly pop music, and something warm and with decent bass would be preferred over outright clinical accuracy. I'm at quite a loss with all these new brands popping up seemingly every day (Beats, Sol, Monster, etc..). Back when I was buying my last fullsize cans it was Senn, Grado, Beyer, AKG, AT, and a handful of others. I'm not really sure what's a good value for the money anymore..
