I wondered why I couldn't get any over-ear headphones to fit :D

I have to do that as well for the iPhone, so don't think it's just you. I think it's a 'fashion' thing, what the young plebs expect it to be like these days :D I'm using Sennheiser PX 100-III

I think you are right there Mike. Pity really, there is so much more to music than bass - Don't tell DTB :twisted:

Should have mentioned the other reason for choosing these is that they fold flat so will fit in my bag nicely.
