Philips O'Neill The Stretch headphones
The Philips O'Neill The Stretch headphones may not have great sound, but they're well designed, very comfortable, and cost less than $50. They also come in white, and there's a step-up model, the Stretch Headband Headset SHO9567BK/28 (or SHO9567WT/28), that features an inline microphone for $10 more.

The good: The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX are attractively styled, very comfortable, and relatively lightweight for over-the-ear headphones. They're also modestly priced and you can detach the headphone cord.
The bad: Sound could be more dynamic and detailed; no built-in microphone; headphones don't fold flat.
The bottom line: The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX get a birdie for design but only hit par for sound quality.
