    Can anybody recommend some cheap headphones for my new iPod shuffle which I shall be using at work as in-ear headphones hurt my ears. I want to spend as little as possible as I already have a huge expensive headphone collection - £500 to £600. I am looking for something equal or better than the supplied iPod in-ear phones. What are the cheap Sennheiser headphones like - PX 30 for about £9.00? If the cheapies are rubbish I am prepared to spend a bit more

    PX200 worth a look if you need closed (although i doubt they offer much isolation so not sure if they are worth it over the 100's).

    I'd also look into the Koss KSC-75 which have something of a legendary status over at headfi.

    They don't have to be closed - it's a comfort thing. I wonder how comfortable the Koss's are with the behind the ear clamp - they are going really cheap on Amazon.

    I've got the PX200s and they are very comfortable to wear and keep the sound in well not to annoy my fellow commuters

    I ordered the Koss KSC-75's for the bargain price of £9 new from Amazon. If I don't like them I can always try the Sens.

    I reckon you will be VERY impressed for £9. Probably the best bang for buck headphones on the market bar none.
