Looking for a pair, mostly to use with an iphone while on vacation on the beach. I hate anything in my ear. Will also use them occasionally with my macbook at home.
Mostly classic rock, iphone has best quality MP3 trancoded from Flac. I don't listen very loud.
Would like to keep them fairly inexpensive.
Saw some recommendations for the Sennheiser PX-100 iii, they have them on Amazon for about $50, any other suggestions?

Thanks

I'd check out the iGrado.

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz

I've been finding it very difficult to find any to demo locally. I did find a Grado dealer. Any Beyerdynamic fans? With a Brookstone gift cert I can get, I could pick up the T50p for about $75 out of pocket.
