    Over the years, my audio taste became a little snobbier in terms of quality of the music I listen to. The more bit rate, the better.
    Because of that I also became a little more demanding on the hardware that I use, I don't call myself an audiophile (yet) as I'm not that paranoid with the clarity, depth, balance and other fancy words that audiophiles have; I am however, past the phase of just using any pair of headphones, specially the ones that come with any iPod.

    With that said, here is what I use right now:

    Studio Headphones, Beats by Dre

    I know, I know, there are a lot of haters of the brand they call them overpriced and too mainstream; I can only say that I bought these refurbished for half the price and they sound better than what I can afford for the same price.

    So how about you? Do you have any preferred cans or earphones? Show us yours!

    Edit: grammar

    It's fairly cheap (you can probably get it under $20) and the quality is alright, I guess (I don't really care much for quality, so I don't really know...), but above all, these are highly comfortable. It never leaves my ears hurting after prolonged use, which is all I really cared for.

    Beyerdynamic DTX 800

    Had them since December 2008 (something of a record for me) although I did just have to redo the plug end after a fat man broke them on the plane- forgot how annoying it is to solder enamel coated wire (I cheated and stuck them in the flame from the cooker- also forgot how quick enamel burns).
    I have never been happy with paying the silly money for headphones but I am certainly with VVoltz on the point of not using any old piece of junk.

    They work well although as I do not like the noise cancelling ones it seems these do just as good a job of being speakers for everybody around me and the 3m of cable seems a tad excessive although it is nice to be able to slide around on the chair a bit. My only real problem is I can not wear them with a hat (my ears are too oddly shaped to handle in ear headphones) but as I do not listen to things when out and about I am OK with that.

    Bring on ultrasonic speakers.

    At the moment I am using a set of fairly generic Senheisser in hear headphones - I find if I spend a lot on high end headphones they just break down faster :/

    Sony MDR-EX700 - second pair, annoyingly I lost the first pair while running from my car to my house in a ridiculous amount of rain, went back out to look for them when i noticed but they had been washed away :-(

    I normally use them in conjunction with this so i'm not tied to my laptop/computer/TV:

    (Sony Ericsson MW600)

    I also have these but don't use them often as after a couple of hours they start to feel uncomfortable as they press my glasses into the side of my head:

    EDIT: Replaced massively oversized picture with smaller one.

    Sennheiser HD 25-1 II's. I considered the ATH-M50's but these seemed like a better option for both SQ and portability. I never thought i'd ever spent over £100 on headphones....
