Will be used mostly for movies, plugged into my receiver's headphone jack. I prefer on ear, as long as they are lightweight and comfy on the ears. Over the ear are fine too, but if the cups are not deep and large enough, and touch my ears, I hate that. Thanks.

I didn't like the fit of the Porta Pros, and returned them for the KSC75. Now I need to buy a second can(something different) for movies at night, when everyone is asleep. My wife will also be using it occasionally. Is a full size can better for the wife's long hair?

That's right. However, I picked them up on a sale listed here a few weeks ago new for $23.00.

I'm changing my criteria to full size, circumaural, with A LOT of ear space and depth. My first choice is open, second choice is semi-open. Will be used mostly for movies, plugged into our receiver's headphone jack. What is the difference between semi open and semi closed? It's not in the glossary. On my list are:
 
1) Superlux HD681
 
2) Superlux HD668
 
Which other cans under $40 would you recommend? Thanks.
