-I find the apple standard Ipod 'phones are almost a perfect fit.

-The skullCandy smokinbuds are not big enough for my ears. Well at least the silicon are not hard or firm enough. Even with the larger silicon heads on.

-No mic need nor wanted.

-If it has a over the head strap, please don't list ones that are "ugly".
I would like to wear them in public:D

-Under $80 USD.

I have looked but I'm not finding ones I like, that I hear are any good.
I hear skullcandy is to much of an "alienware" of headphones.

Best Headphones I have EVER used.

Now I am a bit of an audiophile and you can trust me when I say these headphones are the best I have ever used.
There not earbuds, but most good sound quality headphones aren't. I have quite a bit of experience with headphones and earbuds and have come to a sad conclusion.

If you want good sound quality in earbuds, you have to pay $120 or more.
If you want good sound quality in headphones, you can spend quite a bit less.

If you do get these, I get complaints all the time about how much sound leaks out of the headphones but there too good to not give a try.

The high feq. range is clear, the mids are strong and definite, and the lows are amazing and clear but not overpowered.

Also, I don't use a iPod. iPod = Really bad sound quality.
I use a Cowon O2 which uses BBE sound enhancements. It fixes and reforms sounds from compressed music(MP3, OGG, etc)to sound more like the real instruments that are playing them. Even FLAC sounds better with them.

I have used these headphones while mowing the lawn, since I like my music loud, it easily drowns out the lawn mower. xP Oh! And sweat is close to none.

These headphones are cheap, and there great.

Also note these headphones have been on cnets top 5 editor's choice list for over a year.

Alright Sweet, thanks guys. I think I'm going to keep looking but will most likely fall back on the Koss PortaPro Headphones.

I am using Sennheiser HD201 headphones. They fit my ears well but they tend to slide off once in a while. I wish they had more bass though... :(
