I am looking for a new pair of headphones. I am looking for the type that goes over the ear closed, not on the ear. I just need something that'd be good with ipods and little to no sound leaks. Under $80 would be preferred but $100 is okay too. Any Suggestions?
 
 thanks!!

I think you are looking for the same thing as me check out the Sennheiser CX 870 I can't say that they are good as I didn't order them yet but from the reviews I have seen on amazon they seem to be really high end headphones I have been looking around for some decent headphones for past few days and I will most likely order those ones today at some point for £46 from amazon.co.uk

What kind of sound signatures are you looking for? Under $80 you could look at the fostex t50rp, very interesting headphone, there is a modded version of the t50rp thats sold for around $400, known as the smeggy thunderpants. If you feel that not-so-bassy headphones isn't your thing, check out the sony XB 500, one of the most bassy headphone money can buy.
