Help Me Pick Out Some Decent Headphones

I am in the market for some decent headphones to use with my computer at work. I don't need something super nice, but having good sound is a must. Just something to use to listen to music. Ones that have a pretty long cord would be preferred. I've done a little research already, but really have no idea what is good and what is crap. Thanks in advance for your help.

The Sony MDR-V6 (not the V600) is probably the best headphone you can get for under 100 dollars. The pro version (MDR-V7506) is widely used in recording studios as monitors. It has been shown on various headphone review forums that the drivers for the two headphones are exactly the same, and the only difference is a gold plated plug and the price.

Check the HeadWize forums for good advice and reviews:
