Default Headphones for Sansa e200

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for headphones that have good sound quality with the sansa e280 (not R, if that matters). I thought the ones it came with it were kind of lame (as expected), and I lost them anyway.

I'm pretty picky about it, I like it to sound GOOD. I bought some cheapass Coby ones and they totally suck. (You get what you pay for, eh). The only one's I've tested that I was REALLY impressed by were these awesome Bose ones.. they sound amazing but they are like $170 which is way out of my price range. SO. Good headphones, 50 bucks or less? I don't like the ones that go in your ear, they mostly bother me. I like ones also with a seperate volume control. And noise-cancelling is cool, but not TOO noise cancelling cause I walk aroudn with it on at night on the streets and I'd like to hear the screeching tires coming towards me.

I AM NOT GOOD AT BEING SUCCINT.

BUT, suggestions? Please.

Sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere, I looked. If there is another thread about it, feel free to direct me to it.

I got Dynex over the ear headphones from Best Buy for about 20 bucks.
Sound good, block some of the outside noise and are comfortable. I hate ear buds. Keep my ears warm when the wind chill is around zero. ;-)

Sennheiser PX 200
Awesome sounding headphones for only $50 or so. I love the compact, folding, on-the-ear design also. They have a break in period of about a week where you will hear the sound get better. Its pretty cool.

Best headphones under $100, Koss KSC75. $12 online. $25 at radioshack with volume. Great for walking the streets because you can hear what is around you. Check head-fi.org if you dont believe me. And please never waste your money on Bose. There are much better sounding phones for less.

Slaughter, Those headphones look like a good buy. I checked out Amazon and other review sites. After I break the Phillips ones I have I will buy those. Hope my dad pays for them. I have to more money left.

What do you think of Phillips' headphones? Suck Or OK?

You need daddy to buy you $12 headphones? Oh, that's sad man...

The Philips headphones are OK. I love their clarity, but they lack bass (the ones I had did anyway).

As for budget headphone recommendations... I like the Sony MDR-V150s, you can get them for around $12 if you look hard enough.

DUDE, Ok. Where can I find these headphones? If target or Walgreens I can go buy them myself. The only cheapest place is online. I cannot keep buying stuff on his credit card, I don't have one. Thats the deal.

Well, I haven't seen the KSC75s in any B&M stores. But that might just be my area.

Another vote for Koss KSC75s

Sennheiser PX200

or if you do not mind a full sized but very light set

The bargain Sennheiser HD201

All of these will improve with use over the first week

PS
Walking around at night with headphones on leaves you open to a surprise attack by thiefs or perverts, don't do it!

I have Shure E2C and E3C's along with V-Moda Vibes and finally my Ultimate Ears Super-Fi 3 Studio. The V-Moda Vibes have really nice bass but doesn't eliminate ambient noises completely but the others do. The E2C's are really good for the price but the cabling could be stronger. The E3C's and Ultimate Ears are what I think are best with clearer sound going to the E3C.

Other than that I'm not sure that the current custom EQ do the headphones any justice except for Pop setting. Yeah... I've been finicky with sound ever since being introduced to the Shure line. Check for prices because I found the E2C for $80 USD the Ultimate Ears for $90 USD the V-Moda Vibes for $100 and $130 for the E3c.

Once you hear decent headphones, the Sandisk ones are muddy and dull.

You can get these are Circuit City or RadioShack, but Amazon is the cheapest.

No, "succinct" isn't your forte, but we forgive you.

You might look at the Koss Porta-Pros. I have a pair that's about 10 years old and still use them now and again. I like how they fold up for travel. And I think they sound quite good, with a surprising amount of bass response. Skip the Junior model and go for the original Porta-Pro.

iGrado's. Same drivers as Grado's Legendary SR60. Some people say they arent punchy enough, but I think they sound great, with a warm feel, and decent sound stage. Ill post a link a a sec...

Good luck young flower.

Spelling "succinct" correctly isn't my forte either. I knew it looked wrong. I lose.

But yeah. Much thanks to everyone for the suggestions thus far. I also see someone has moved my thread to the headphones & speakers section (where it belongs).. which I didn't even know existed until after I posted the thread. Again, I lose.

So, yeah, thanks!

try looking here
http://www.headphone.com/guide/by-budget/under-40/

personally i have the Sennheiser HD202s and i love them. much prefer them over any over the ear or any supraural for that matter. you said you are looking for a little isolation, then get a pair of circumaural or "over the whole ear" true some look goofy but there are attractive ones out there and they really offer the best sound quality available

http://www.aaxes.com is another good place to look.
