    Can anyone recommend a solid set of headphones at a decent price? I'm looking for something that I can use in the gym, on runs, and for my walk to work. Therefore, I need earbuds versus the over the ear variety. Any audio-heads around that can help me out? Currently I'm rocking $10 Phillips from CVS so anything would be appreciated.

    Will do. The reviews on them look great, so I'm looking forward to checking them out.

    I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm looking for some quality "over-ear" headphones. Anyone got any reccomendations for me?

    Honestly, I agree on Beats, but disagree with your take on Bose.

    If we are talking just headphones to listen to music, there are MANY better alternatives to Bose, but if you want noise cancelling, the QC15's are as good as it gets. The build quality isn't as solid as I personally would like, but they are more effective at noise cancelling than anything I've ever seen and sound very good.

    If you just want great headphones that won't break your wallet TOO much (headphones can easily go over $1,000), go with these:

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50S Monitor Headphones (http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-M50-Studio-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B000ULAP4U)

    These are very, very good and actually affordable.

    I am a big Sennheiser fan, but they can get pricey too. The phones I posted above are as good as 650's IMO.
