I mainly listen to my IPods while driving because I spend much of my time in my truck and/or on the road. I don't care for earbuds and I need open phones in order to hear what's going on around me while driving. I use Senn PX 100 phones, and they sound good - I don't have any complaints with them. I'm just wondering if there are better sounding phones out there, that aren't too large and still allow me to hear the surrounding sounds I need to.

As I stated above - I want "open" phones, not 'Noise-Canceling'. 'Open' earcup designs offer little or no ambient noise attenuation.

I'm not looking for cheap phones, I want good sounding phones under, say $150

I actually have a set of KSC75's and while they sound good - I want to be able to quickly remove as well as put them on (I have to answer my phone a lot). That design doesn't lend itself to quickly do so, especially while driving. Maybe I need an IPhone.

I might want to add here that I spend about 80% of my driving time on country roads, dirt roads & out in the middle of big ranches. I'm never in cites, so it's not as unsafe as it may have been perceived.

I have both PX100 and KSC75, while both are good for their price, i love my KSC75 better. It has that sparkling treble and mid, and a tight bass. PX100 does have that boomy bass, but after awhile it got boring and the sound pretty bland, still good for bass head people.
