I use a Kaman Ultra and think its great for about $100. I sometimes use Bose earbuds with my Roland but the volume is a bit lower then the speakers on the DP.

+1 on the Grados. They are open-backed which means you can hear some of your environment as well, which is more natural. So you can hear the phone ring or someone talking, etc. Also they lay flat when not in use. The only downside is some times they make your ears warm.

I use budget priced Koss KSC75 ear clips with my Casio PX200. They are fine. KSC75 review at headphone Though one day I'd like to get the Grados with a longer cord (to hook up also with other equipment).

I took the budget route with Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones from Amazon. They were about $15 bucks and sound pretty good to my ears. I use them with a PX-800.

For seating, I use a dining room chair that is the right height to keep my arms in a fairly neutral position.
