Sennheiser PMX 60
Advantages: lightweight, flexible design, great sound quality for the price
Disadvantages: The fabric has torn due to overuse, quite loud for people around you.
I have always been a fan of Sennheiser, and have owned a couple of their larger headphones in the past for more 'serious' music listening and guitar playing. With their release of their 'first ever neckband headphone however,' I jumped at the chance at buying them for my Ipod.
At first I was surprised at how flimsy they seemed, but don't let that put you off...they are bendy and supple but this is actually a massive advantage - it lets you stuff them in your pocket or in your bag along with your ipod without worrying that they are going to break. I feel that they are the best of their type on the market for thing kind of thing.
Sound quality is true Sennheiser quality, and it doesn't take long to get accustomed to hearing such a full sound with such a small pair of headphones. Okay, so they are not as good as the bose equivalent, but for a fraction of the price (you can pick some up on Amazon for about £26) then they are a real worthwhile investment. If I had to pick one flaw, it is that their noise cancelling isn't fantastic...so you have to turn it up rather loud...everyone can also hear what you are listening to...this may bother some, it may not others.
In all however, these headphones have lasted me for years and I don't intend on changing them for anything else!
Summary: A well designed pair of headphones with enormous capability - very impressed
