Headphones for guitar practice

Hey guys,

I was looking to get some recommendations for some new headphones to use for guitar practice. I had previously used a pair of Bose headphones which were great but finally broke after 5 years. Anyway, I was looking for recommendations for reasonably high quality headphones no more expensive really than $120-ish. Any suggestions? Suggestions from personal experience would be great!

Thanks

EDIT: Anyone had any good experiences with Creative Aurvana Live headphones? They're supposedly great for under $100 and Amazon has a sale on them right now.

I'm using Sennheiser HD555 (they are replaced by HD558 that stonyman65 recommended). They are pretty good quality.

Oh yeah, forgot about those. Good suggestion.

Yeah, those Sennheiser's are too pricey for me right now. I personally prefer fully over-the-ear headphones so I'd rather go with the Creative Aurvana Live over the Grado Prestige. Thanks for the suggestions though.

Get some Sennheiser HD 280s, it's what I use and I haven't really looked for better since. They go for about $100.
