I use these:

if you shop around, I think you might be able to find them even cheaper? I got them like 3 years ago, but see no need to upgrade or anything. They need to burn in ~100 hrs...

are over the ear phones safer for one's ears or is it *all* about SPL while listening to headphones?

For an expert, medically sound opinion, don't listen to me.
But as far as I know - it does essentially comes down to the loudness (level and duration) and the type of headphone would not really matter.

I chose the AKG K324 and I'm not disappointed. For $66 they are well worth the money.
