Ok this may sound like a confusing request but  I am looking for some recommendations on a pair of headphones.

 

What I am looking for is a decent pair of headphones with good sound quality that I wouldn’t have to be concerned taking to the beach or something like that.   I am not looking for super expensive one’s but something $200 or below.   I already have a V-moda M100, and B&W P7 as well as sennheiser IE80 that I use when I’m at home.  I just don’t feel comfortable taking them out and about and especially out on the beach.

 

What I have been using for that purpose is a pair of Polk sport neckband headphones which I also use for my workouts.   The problem with them is that they are neckbands and when sitting down and leaning back the neckband gets in the way.   For that reason I would like to avoid a neckband type, also I would like to avoid buds if possible as I have never really had much luck with that type.    I am thinking something with the around the head design, without much leakage that are somewhat rugged and I wouldn’t have to be concerned about taking them out and about and especially to the beach with blowing sand.

 

I primarily listen to classic rock if that helps.

 

Thanks for any suggestions
