I noticed Scott that you did not answer your own question. I would take a guess that you occasionly listen to music with cans.
I myself was considering buying a good set of cans in the $300-$400 price range but have backed off since I was debating with the exact question myself on how often I would use them. I have a list of toys I am considering buying and headphones have managed to put themselves at the bottom of the list.
So for now I would vote NEVER and if I do get a pair of headphones they will be strictly for music.
Maybe I am sobbie but I do not consider EARBUDS as headphones.
