1) for walking around and riding the subway and keeping in my pocket

basically i need something i can keep in my pocket with my iphone, as i like to walk around and listen to music or listen to podcasts on the subway

i had 2 of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001S0PWV8/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000N7VPM2&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=11CHS6WZHX93FKC480R9
in the past year, but they both fell apart to some degree with sound stopping in one ear or whatever
but they are cheap and sound pretty good and work well

but i am looking for other possible suggestions

2) for the office

i have a pair of these http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDR-V6-Monitor-Headphones-Voice/dp/B00001WRSJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1286805018&sr=8-1 at home
but i dont wanna bring headphones to and from the office
i am looking for something that is comfy on your head for long periods of time and doesnt let sound fly everywhere
i could get another pair of the same
i could get something cheap and comfy and keep the ones i have at home at home
or i could get something more expensive and keep those at home and bring the sonys to work

soooo

yeah

    For the office: I have a pair of these, and they sound pretty good and are very light and comfortable. They also have a pretty decent length cord. You can't really beat the price.

    Those Koss headphones have a lifetime warranty, so it's basically $6 plus shipping to them for a new pair.

    I'm a fan of Audio Technica's ATH-AD700.

    The short version: gigantic open-air headphones, 10 FT cord, really comfy.

    Long version / caveats:
    - They're open-air, so if you listen to anything hearing-damage level loud, anyone close by will hear it too. I've not found it to be a liability at work (my nearby coworkers say they can't hear it), but I have space / cube walls between others and myself.

    - The spring-loaded armature on top is best suited for folks with slightly larger heads. It's really comfortable, but you might find it too loose fitting if you have a smaller head. Unfortunately, I don't wear hats, so I can't give you anything to compare with in that department. Google around for a review for other thoughts on that one. The first Amazon review covers most of what I think about them.

    They're about the price of your current at-home pair, so it depends on what you're willing to spend, I guess.

    I'm in an open air office with a lotta people close by, and i have a big head

    i wonder if the warranty will properly cover these old earbud headphones
    no harm trying i guess, but is wear and tear covered by warranties usually?
