    I really like those cheap AKG they sell in Richers. On ear design and a pair goes in my work bag. Travelled all over with them.

    For more critical listening I have some Audio Technica ATHm50x. They can get a bit uncomfortable after a long while but maybe that's just my massive noggin.

    For the money though both the AKG and AT offerings at that price are worth a look.
    One of these days... I'm going to cut you into little pieces.

    If you mean the AKG Y50 at 39, I would heartily agree :

    I use them when I'm on the go or on holiday - the closed back design doesn't annoy anyone sitting next to you.

    For home use, I prefer Grado myself and run a pair of SR80s through a dual mono headphone amp and they sound stunning

    Another vote for Sennheisers, I have the HD 600's and love them. A smooth listen, nice and warm but with plenty of detail, this combined with great comfort means I can - and do - happily listen to them for hours on end.

    As previously mentioned though, they are open back so might not be any good if you intend to use them in the same room as another. Also not sure what you class as inexpensive, compared to the AKG's above they're certainly not, compared to HD800's they definitely are!
