Good headphones for a corporate office environment?

What are good headphones (specific models) for a corporate office environment? I don't want to use noise-cancelling, but I also can't have the sound leaking out and disturbing people. But I don't want to lose all the low-end bass frequency!

Looking for headphones for listening stations

Headphone solution x 2. I'm looking for two pairs of headphones to mate with some listening stations at my record store. One is for a unit that's on the floor and accessible to everyone so should be corded so it can't be stolen (it connects to the unit inside the machine). The other we'd like a wire-free pair... however, the listening station has no wireless/bluetooth. Is there a dongle or something that can solve this? In addition, what headphones would you recommend in general, that give good sound, fit many size heads, and are reasonably priced? Obviously, earbuds are not appropriate. Thanks!

What is the best in-ear headphone under $100 for use on long airplane flight?

I am in urgent need of in-ear earphones for use on a number of long flights I have to take in the coming months. I've narrowed down my choices to the Shure e2c or the Sony MDRNC22. The Shure is noise isolating, the Sony is noise cancelling. Which is better? The shure's seem to go deeper into the ear. Will that get uncomfortable?

I'm looking for small sporty headphones that aren't in-ear models.

After several years use of iPod headphones, I'm fairly sure I've damaged my ears listening too loudly with earbud style headphones. I have no interest in in-ear headphones, but my question is: is there an alternative to earbuds and in-ear that provide decent sound quality and are functional to use while exercising? (this rules out giant over the ear cans as well) I've seen behind-the head wrap-around headphones but they're usually cheap and tinny -- is there a high end version of those style that I could wear while sweating?

I need new headphones - Any suggestions?

What are the right headphones for me? Big head, normal ears, likes loud noises, $100-$200 budget. Mostly for listening to music on my iPod Touch, occasionally playing games on my computer using it's (reasonably competent) onboard audio. I understand the listening experience is subjective, but if I can narrow it down to a short list, I can work on getting my head on various items to see how they work for me. [more inside]

Recommend really durable, cheap headphones for lending at a library?

Could anyone recommend me a pair of cheap (under $50) and very durable headphones for lending out at a library? It should be designed with the goal of surviving some gratuitous quantity of abuse and then being cheaply replaced. Other criteria include around-the-ear cups, a long (3m minimum) cord, and a standard (2.5mm?) computer audio plug. Noise cancellation, great fidelity, and adjustability not essential. Pretty is a downright disadvantage, since we don't want people walking off with them. What happened to those massive abominations of puke-colored shatterproof plastic we used in elementary school, that could facilitate a multimedia class and a game of catch equally well?

Earphones for little ears?

Can you recommend some ear/headphones for someone with small ears? The ones that came with my old ipod always fall out because the earbuds are a bit too big. I read some previous threads here that recommended the kind that loop over your ear, but I wear glasses, so those never fit properly and fall off. I'd prefer some cheapies, as I'm not looking for superior sound quality; I just like to listen to pop music when I jog.
