Step 4: Headphones for home
Chalk it up to the physics of headphones' larger speaker drivers, the psycho-acoustic differences of sound produced outside your skull, rather than within it, or the comfort of a padded headband versus shoving a piece of plastic into your ear.
People get very passionate about their headphones, which makes recommending a pair like opening a can of worms. My current faves, though, are the Ultrasone HFI-2200. CNET's resident Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg has a list of his top three favorites, as well.
