i have been though 4 cheapy sets in like a year . They all brake on the top !!
So instead of spending £50 quid on a decent pair went onto ebay and started looking for some gaming headphones
I then came across some razor's Piranhas for £3 with a broken socket .
So bought a new connector on ebay , another £2 ( attached with my trusty soldering iron )
And now i have some fully working headphones for £5
If your like me and brake them all the time this might be the best solution for you !
Ebay ID is 110916843112
There £25 refurbished , but are a very nice headphone. They use USB and a mono and stereo jack ( USB for lights , stereo for sound , mono for mic)
I use a Razer Carcharias headset, so comfy you can have them on for hours without discomfort. Great for gaming but others will probably be better for music...

After looking at and trying on all the headphones in HMV I didn't really find any over-the-head style sets that seemed particularly comfortable so I've bought a pair of in-ear sennheiser CX 300's for now.

I've been using them for a couple of days and they're definitely a serious improvement over the standard Apple headphones.
Just to update this thread I've ordered a Creative HS800 Fatal1ty Gaming Headset as I needed something with a built in Mic. I'm still unsure how well I'll get on with a headset so didn't want to spend too much cash. Picked them up for £26 on Amazon which seemed like a good deal. I've read several reviews that stating they're comfortable for extended use even when wearing glasses.
I'll post an update when they arrive.
