Looking for Headphones

Looking for suggestions for stereo headphones. They need to be optimal for Bach and Monteverde first, late 19th century and early twentieth century classical second and 1940s and early 1950s jazz third. They need to be sturdy, preferably with a replaceable cord. Not necessarily noise cancelling, as they will be used in a quiet room. No earbuds. Price in the low three figures max.

I need new, durable headphones. Again.

I've had enough of all of my Shure in-ear isolating earbuds dying on one side. My right bud died suddenly, and this is the third pair in a row. I've had this pair for less than 6 months. Could you recommend a durable pair of isolating/noise cancelling earbuds/headphones with a few requirements? [more inside]

Which headphones should I get for a long (14 hours) flight with kids?

Which headphones should I get for a long (14 hours) flight with kids? I want ones that are comfortable on a large head and are easy to remove, because I'll need to get up frequently. I looked at noise-cancelling headphones on Amazon, but the ones that sounded best for me (Sennheiser PXC 450) are too expensive for something I'll use infrequently. On previous trips I've used earplugs to deaden the ambient noise and just turned the volume up on my (airline-supplied) headphones, but there must be a better way.

Please help me out of headphone obsession

I'm looking for the perfect closed headphones for under $100 that fold up for portability. I am currently trying out the Sony MDR-V6. I like the sound and they're comfortable enough (a little tight) and the size is right. The problem is the stupid coiled cable - it's driving me crazy. [more inside]

Why so much leakage?

As a test, when I have music on loud, I take my earbuds out, hold them a few feet away from myself, and I can't hear it. Yet, I can clearly hear the words in the songs of people wearing headphones 20 feet away from me in the subway. Do their headphones have terrible leakage? Do they have their music on earsplitting levels? [more inside]

Why do my Grado headphones cause me ear pain?

Why do my Grado SR325 headphones cause my ears to hurt? If I wear them for over half an hour, I get pain from my earlobe around to the jaw joint. It's not related to ear infection or anything specific, because I've experienced this a number of times. I read in a related question that some suggest the headband be bent out, but I don't see how to do that on this model without breaking it--its flexibility wouldn't seem to support it. The weird thing is they don't feel tight when I wear them; it's just that, after a while, I start feeling persistent pain.
