    I am going to reply with my usual answer "it depends". In this case on budget.

    Think about your computer and its sound card. The built-in amplification on most sound cards is a little bit lower than the typical headphone output on a home stereo receiver. Since you are coming directly from a source to the headphones, the signal is fairly pure.

    The headphones you use can be as simple as the $9 Koss jobs you get at Wal-Mart, or all the way up to Stax or Sennheiser if you want.

    For the budget, I like my Sony digital monitor headphones. They are lightweight, sond great, and cost about $89 for the pair
