You could go for the "in-ear" type. I have just bought myself some of the Full Metal Jacket ones as seen on this site. They are not particularly cheap however.

Looking for some decent headphones, currently using a pair of ipod headphones to listen to music on my laptop. People in the office keep telling me to "Turn it down" because they can hear what Im listening to.
So i'd quite like some 'over ear' headphones rather than 'in-ear', but dont want to look like someone who's saying look at my nice new huge earphones.
So small form factor would be cool...Any recommendations?
I just searched on ebay for neck band head phones ( much more comfortable ) and not huge either
something similar to these sony ones

I got a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones which are great but a bit pricey! I found a brand new pair on eBay for a fraction of the RRP. I love em...

Bit bass'y and a massive cord - Too long!
Happy for price tag.
Thirding that Sennheiser recommendation - seriously quality gear.
