what is your budget for headphones? for around $69 you could get the Audio Technica M40fs
which you can also use for a good monitoring headphones. But on the cheaper side, I have good experience with AKG's headphones. The M80
($39) or M70
($25) would be a nice HP to start with.

good suggestion, that or a 1/4" to RCA jack converter also did it to me when I was starting out
