Depending upon your need/usage, I can fully recommend any of these headphones for radio use.
KSC75 - my portable ear clip headphones. Fantastic sound in a small package. Better than earbuds. Comfy. $10 on Amazon. No-brainer. Buy one pair for your go-kit and one for your mp3 player.
KXT Pro1 - These inexpensive, comfortable, non-bulky on-ear headphones have a really pleasing sound to me on CW. And you can still hear the phone ring or XYL calling you from upstairs. Small enough to take with you on outings too. Radio Shack sells these for $16.
SB45 - Full sized, closed-ear design to keep ambient room noise at bay. Good sound on both phone and CW, comfortable and very good audio reports from the mic with my KX3. I believe there are two versions, one with 3.5mm plugs and one with USB, so make sure you get the right one. $29 on Amazon.
