    http://www.voxamps.com/amplug/ Around $50 + whatever the headphones cost. I use my IPad headphones. Plug it in and take it anywhere. You are the only person that will hear it. There are vox amps for lead guitar, bass, rhythm guitar, etc. Pick the one that fits your playing.

    Some years ago I had the same issue of not wanting to wake/annoy others with what I was playing. I made the mistake of checking guitar forums etc. to see which headphones people recommended and which were supposed to sound best etc. Several pairs of headphones later, I decided all that sort of advice is frankly nonsense.

    In the end, after discarding several pairs of larger more expensive pairs of studio phones, I found that I much preferred the smallest lightest and cheapest little headphones. So I'd just get a minimalist pair of phones like that from a decent brand like Synthesiser (whoops, edit -as Jon says below- I meant Sennheiser, not "synthesiser"!) for about £8-£10.

    You mean Sennheiser?

    I have a great cheap pair of theirs I've had for years - really good quality. Unfortunately they're now falling apart, and the equivalent model now is a lot more than £10... I've yet to find any others that sound anywhere near as good.
    The only annoying thing about the pair I have is they're so comfortable I tend to forget I have them on, and stand up and walk away.... and unfortunately they're not wireless...
