-I own a Ipod Mini Second Generation.
-Listens to: Rock, Rap, Pop
-Headphones MUST be portable
-Prefers headphones that don't leak
-Under/or $50

Thanks, and yes, I am a cluless about headphones, but know what good sound is. (I own a Heinrich Gill Violin, Handmade, $1,400)

Thanks,
Cluless

Based on you criterea I would suggest the Sennheiser HD201 -- $29, sound great, sealed headphone, portable enough.

AKG K 26 P would be a great choice.

I'd suggest to check the Creative HQ-1700/Audio-Technica ATH-FC7.

I'd say... the three suggestions so far are probably the best < $50 picks, if maybe with an ever-so-slight personal inclination towards the K26P

Principally listen to MP3 via Qtek9090 with it's horrible headphone jack (have the stereo adapter) via Windows Media player 10. Otherwise, when I'm not hating myself, listen to Minidisc.

Normally use the Sony MDR-EX51LP because, well, they are amazing, and dirt cheap. Stacks of power, lots of bass, impeccable clarity (6-23000 hz...)

I know that marks me out as unclean, but come one, they are amazing at the price.

Moving forwards, do I want

Etymotic ER6i
Shure E2c

or anything else, for about £50-100?

Bear in mind that the mp3 player connector may well remain the weak link.

Cheers

If you still dig the fun bass presentation, go for the Shures.
