Headphone recommendations

I've bought a Creative Zen Vision:m, and whilst the player is a brilliant piece of kit, the headphones seem sub-standard. Can anyone recommend a pair of, preferably in ear, headphones for around £20 that can do this player justice!

Like any loudspeaker or HiFi component, its generaly safe to assume that the more you pay the better the sound quality.

To start, in-ear headphones never sound as good as external ones and if you can stretch your budget to perhaps at least £50 you can start to look at the Sennheiser range - highly recommended.

...put up with the earpad route and buy a pair of 'Sennies' They have some extremely lightweight models now and I have been using a pair with mm3 player for a while now. I find them great!

...Think mine cost about £20. Suppose it depends where you go.

...look on Headphoneworld.com for a deal on Sennheiser or Koss phones.

Think you'll find what you want - these are both good makes.
