My favorite pair of headphones is actually a pair that I bought at a local pharmacy for 15 dollars. Jensen JHF350. They have a retractable cord, a comfortable pad over the ear and head piece, and also a great range of sound. These are them, I think: http://www.zalmar.com/detail-Audio-H...nes-JHF350.htm
I don't know what that other cord below the headphones is, I didn't get that..
There are a lot better brands out there, so I don't know what to tell you, except that you may be surprised at what you find.
Of course, I havent really used them since i got my Logitech Z-5300e speaker system.
