Buy another pair of Sony MDR-V6? Or not?

I need a second pair of headphones. One for office use. One for home + music stuff use. I love my MDR V6's but the comfort isn't great and they're not so hot for subway, although I usually prefer earbuds.

my ears are too weirdly shaped for earbuds

i use MDR-NC6's. the comfort's fine for me, but then again my ears are weirdly shaped.

yeah my ears are too weird for earbuds and big over-ear models are too heavy/move around too much and I don't like making everyone listen to my music with open-air models. I hate headphones. I hate shopping for them and then I hate putting them on and having to use them. Fuck it.

theres also some small company in brooklyn that makes amazing phones..i think its called grado. audiophile freind had 'em...pretty damned nice. not as big as my sony mdr v150's, but that style

my friend works for harmon and i got a pair of these for xmas. they sound great, but i feel like a tool wearing them because they're soooooo big and white and bulbous. i just ordered a pair of sony MDR-EX71 earbuds because i can't wear headphones and glasses at the same time. supposedly they fit in your ear better?
