I have a similar SENNHEISER pair, it does cup my ears nicely, but its a bit tight. It squeezes a bit hard. But it does sound nice.

Thanks all, I ended up getting the HD280 PRO's, A little more than I was going to spend. Newegg has them for 99.99, and then I got an e-mail from them with a bunch of stuff on sale and what do you know, there they were with a promotional code to get them for like 79.99.

Sennheiser's are really nice!

Honestly as funny as it sounds coming from my mouth I do like Bose headphones also, but you are crawling up to $100+ there instantly.

Yes, I tried out the bose, the ones that cup around your ears, they do sound awesome but they were $179.00.

That is the downside, and sleeping with them may not be the best idea, they are kinda built a little cheap on the durability factor.
