I just picked up some Klipsch X10 headphones. Wow are they very clear and accurate sounding to me. Extremely comfortable too.

Re: Which headphones do you currently use?

I agree. I've never much liked headphones. The impression of sound coming from between my ears has always felt creepy to me.

I gave a pair of Stax esl phones to a buddy. He has a neighbor who has a problem with any kind of noise and uses them a lot.

I bought some Grado SR-60i's for when I was undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. The stock cushions were extremely uncomfortable. I replaced them with some yellow Sennheisers. They're more comfortable than the Grado donut replacements and cost less. Amazon carries them.

Re: Which headphones do you currently use?

When I was in the Military in the late 70s I purchased a pair of Audia Technicas (ATH7) that had a box which connected to your speaker jacks. I hooked them up to my Yamaha Receiver (I believe I was running them off the "class A' mode) and they were the best I have heard to date. I never should have sold them!

I have been using these for some months now and can highly recommend them:

Still use my old Yamaha HD1 Orthodynamics.
Main use is when travelling or camping. They still sound great but are relatively inefficient, so I've just bought the O2 Headphone amp from JDS Labs and very pleased with the matchup.

HD558 - Non-fatiguing affordable smooth sound.
KSC-75 - Portable, Jogging, Grado like sound, fun and incredible value.
HD202 - OK though a bit bass heavy and muffled. Like them for movies though.

Re: Which headphones do you currently use?

I finally settled on the ATH-A900's due mostly to comfort, but they do sound very good too.

Chime in on our headphone review round-up thread if you will.
