Default Whats the Best behind the head(street style) headphones?

I'm looking into new ear phones. I don't want IEMs cause I feel they go to far into the ear, clip ons feel like they could slide off. my only real choice is behind the head. I've thought of the PMX60 or 100. leaning more towards the 60 for comfort right now and suggestions would be helpful.

The Koss KSC75 or KSC55 are worth a try, too - best sounding in their league, according to many people... and the AKG K24 or K26 (not behind-the-head, but good sounding for that price, and foldable).

Hmmm.. IMO not as bad as the terrible Koss pure-80ies-plastic design. (Never heard of the iGrado's before.)

Hey, at least they attract attention! Anyone in my area would overlook the PX100 and even the iGrado.. but never a KSC55/75..

Anyway, those were just a few suggestions. You might also want to look into dfkt's suggestions. I haven't heard them personally (though I have heard other AKG's), but they might offer a different sound signature tailored to your liking. The ones I mentioned all sound very similar.
