    Default Headphones: Normal Listening?

    I'm just curious as to what kind of headphones you use for everyday listening. My v700s look like they've been to hell and back, so I try to use them exclusively for mixing to maximize their life. It's really not a great experience previewing new tracks with regular earbuds.

    Thanks

    Sennheiser HD25-1 II are great for everything... and you can beat the hell out of them. Mine are 6 years old and look like new.

    Sennheiser HD280pro, had them for years now, they're falling apart yet keeping tough all at the same time, that's my work headphones where I mostly listen to music too, at home it's usually speakers.

    My DJ headphones are Shure SRH750DJ, they stay at home so if I need to listen to music through headphones while at home they are the ones.

    As for the ones on the go, I've been using Klipsch S5i, in fact it's my third Klipsch S? pair (first S4 broke, got S4a still in package). Apart from typical cords breaking (usually a year in) issue, they're fantastic set of ears.

    I use a different sets of headphones throughout the day.
    Each set is great in its own league, but only one is great for anything.
