I'm getting a Sansa Fuze and i figured i might as well get a decent set of headphones to go with it.. I mainly listen to rock music and my budget is $60 canadian.. Ear buds and what not are a possibility too.
I've been Looking at the Sennheiser hd 202s.

Amazon always has Senn HD 202's on Sale.
I bought a five-Pack of them for 90.00. and I love them. Small, lightweight, Excellent sound for "Cheap" cans.

Up until about 4 months ago they were all I used and I was perfectly happy with them. I've given away all but two pair.

Headroom....headphone.com has some great reviews.

Don't even bother with skull candy. If you're raising your budget, check out the Grado SR60 or SR80. They are great rock cans.

Is there anything wrong with the used forums?

If you listen to rock, at some point you must own Grados. Last I looked there were some 80s for sale used, and there are often 60s. For less, find the Koss KSC 75s, they are always mentioned in bang-for-the-buck discussions.

Get a pair of Grados from one of the sellers at Audiogon. They'll ship to Canada. You could also stretch a little for an Alessandro MS-1. They will ship to you, as well.

x3. Koss KSC-24/35/55/75's all use the same drivers and are all excellent phones. I prefer them to Grado's SR60's (which are too bright for me) and w/ Kramer mods are almost as good as SR80's. And they all go for $15-25 or so apiece. They're an insanely good bargain.
