Hi Guys,

Hopefully right section this time!

Just found you guys, soo much info here.

I want to buy a new pair of headphones, mainly to use with my ipod and sometimes with my laptop.

Don't want in-ear. My current Sennheiser HD485 closed headphones make my ears go sweaty after 2 hours. So I guess I'm looking for open headphones that are slightly smaller and less bulky so I can wear while travelling.

Listen to hiphop, funk and ambient/newage kind of music and listen mostly at home. Ocassionaly jogging and only few times whilst on public transport.
Budget is upto £100 or $150.

What can you guys recommend? I'm coming over to LA, so can always buy in US, and at a cheaper price.

I already have tried on a pair of bose over ear headphones, at the uk apple store, and found them to be real comfortable).

So which model?, grado, sennheiser, AKG 81DJ?

Appreciate any comments.
