    Type (In ear/Ear bud/Circumaural/Supra-aural): I think Supra-aural coz they're more portable, but I don't really know...
    Budget: $30-$45.
    Musical preference (What do you listen to?): Mostly rock, little bit of pop.
    Headphones preference (Quite bassy, detailed, warm, bright, forward mids etc...): Hm....don't really know.
    Any other details: See below.

    OK So i'm pretty much a headphones noob. I had previously stuck to in-ear headphones, but those got messed up. Now i'm thinking of getting portable headphones instead of earphones. I mainly listen to music on the bus on the way to school, and sometimes at home. That means I probably want a set of portable headphones that I can store safely. Also, Bluetooth would be nice but not necessary. I also live in Canada so it would be a bit more expensive than regular.

    Hey auni,

    I recently picked up a pair of these headphones at a local store of mine (I'm also in Canada): http://ca.denon.com/ProductDetails/3314.asp
    They sound good and have a nice punchy bass, and they also fold up and can fit in the small supplied pouch. I payed $40 for them I'm pretty sure, and I'm satisfied.

    Thing is, I have a $10 Best Buy gift card. If I can't find it at BB, then I can't go over $35.

    Also, this is my first pair of headphones (previously used earphones). They still look very bulky. Do you think I should go for earphones or headphones...?

    Depends, what will you be using them for? Portable outside use or casual listening in quiet places?

    Well mainly portable use. My bus isn't too noisy but it bumps a lot and makes some noise. I also might listen to it while walking outside or something. Casual listening might be a case too at home, but my main purpose is on the bus.

    Well the first ones you posted (KSC75) would be your best bet, although they're not closed and would leak some sound/let some sound in. If your bus isn't very noisy then they'd be perfect.
