Sorry for the lazy request - gotta get some phones for my wife to use with a Sangean portable fm radio while she walks for exercise. Cheap, durable, easily stored are all priorities. (No, she won't go for Etymotics!)
Suggestions, please?
Thanks to all,
Pete Boser

I have both of these and like both of them. The main difference is the Porta Pros are more conventional over the head model while the 50's are over the ear. The KSC-35s are getting harder to find as they are I believe out of production.

That's good because Ety's would be an extremely poor choice for outdoor activities such as walking, running, or biking, especially for women.

I second the MX500's. Cheap, durable and small, easily stored. They come with a wind up case or she could just wrap'em around the radio. And they should sound great with the Sangean.
