Bose In Ears all the way
My day to day headphones are my Bose in-ear headphones that I've had for a few years now. With Bose you pay a premium for the name but these things really do deliver. And they're insanely comfortable, apple headphones hurt now after wearing these so much. For serious listening I use the Bose on-ears. They have a lot more low end and will make your eyes shake if that's what you're listening to. Stay away from their around ear headphones though, those things are terrible..

I'm using Westone ES5 custom molded in ear monitors most of the time. The sound quality of these rival my $1,500 - $2,000 full size flagship headphones from Sennheiser, HiFiMan and Stax. These are a great match for my iPhone 4S and the new iPad.

Skullcandy Ink'd. $9 from Staples. I can't by expensive ones as i've never had a pair of earphones that doesn't break or short out. I won't spend money on something that will only last a year and a half tops.
oh i also have some older over the ear phillips in ear earbuds i use only for running. One ear has shorted and i haven't replaced them yet. i'm thinking of getting the triathalon kind, the sub $30 versions.

A pair of Klipsch full around ear headphones. Not sure of the model number, was $80 at Best Buy, came with a nice case & some jack adapters. Looked at a Seinheiser & Sony(crap) at same price point & ended up going with the Klipsch after testing in the store.
They sound great for everyday use, but they get a little overwhelmed in an airplane during flight, but still better than stock Apple buds.

I have a few different headphones I use. I have a few stock apple ones that I use when I just need to grab headphones real quick for quick use. Most the time however, I use my powerboats by dr dre or the Beats by Dre Studios. I also have the JayBirds which are great.

Most good costly headphones have a warranty that protects them for a year. I've had my Beats Solo since 11/10 with no issue. The real ones too not the counterfeit joints.
Just ordered the Sol Republic Tracks headphones to replace them and sold the Beats.
Haven't played the Sol yet but from what I hear the sound is comparable if not better than the Beats Studio headphones.
Cost of Sol $100 retail
cheaper on Amazon

I have Koss PortaPro ($35 Amazon) they are amazing! Google them for reviews, you will be very surprised how great they sound. Side by side with any headphones they hold their own and at that price you can't go wrong and they have a lifetime warranty. IMHO. I also use Audio Technica M50 for full size over ear privacy and comfort and Klipsch S4i II for earbuds.
