I couldn't tell you if they're worth anything Bobo, but for my money the Motorola (MOTOROKR) S9-HDs are perfect. Not sure if you are looking for wireless or what, but the S9s are bluetooth wireless and also have a mic so that you can use them for a number of different things. I don't hear so well and having all of my phone calls in stereo now helps tremendously. I can also use them to talk/listen with online games such as COD IV. "Wicked Awesome" is how I'd rate them, but then I'm not real picky and Popp's advice is the basic reason why. I've listened to some of my MP3s on the best headsets by BOSE. Whatever the $350 ones are (which is nucking futs) still had one ear playing louder than the other with my MP3s. And, most MP3 players don't have a balance feature.
