    Have a pair of $50 Sony noise cancelling headphones that I plug into my Ipod when I cut the lawn, really cuts down on external noise so I can hear my Barry Manilow songs in peace.... ;)

    Sorry, I don't record music, can't help ya there... :)

    A hearty +1 on Head-Fi. A word of warning though. You can (or at least I can) get sucked into collecting good-sounding budget headphones and IEMs. Very good info from the membership there.

    I tried all sorts of things from $75 to about $250, and for me the winner was:

    At a price of now $71 they just can't be beat.

    Open back = better sound staging. SHP9500

    They beat out a lot of competition costing 2 or 3 times as much.
