This summer I'm going to UK for a bit and since market in Poland (headphones wise) is rather poor (price/choice), so I decided I'll buy a pair when I'll be there. Plus, I'll have the occasion to go to a shop with my player and just check them out. Buying them in UK is not a requirement, I can buy them of off ebay if they are worth it.
I'm looking for closed/half-open headphones around 120 bucks ~ 80 GBP. I'm not an expert when it comes to choosing headphones, so I'll just say what I want from them.
Mainly, I'll use them outside with iAudio i7 mp3 player (for now, I might change it also), but I will also use them inside while using my pc (not so often, only at night and not every). They must be comfortable, I'll be using them very often for long hours when I'm outside home. I don't have any extra money to spend on amplifier, so AMP is a no-no. Closed with good isolation would be the best, but it's not necessary, I'd take open ones if they'd meet my requirements.
Few bands I really love to listen:
Queens of the Stone Age,
Nine Inch Nails,
The Smashing Pumpkins,
tl;dr: rock, trip hop, electronica, thrash metal
My choice would be all-around headphones, but I admit I have never had in my hands headphones with good bass or all rounders, so for me it's hard to tell which ones I'd prefer more.
I've been recommended these, but don't take it as list to choose from.
Sony MDR-V 500
Audio-Technica ATH-ES7 (if I could get 'em cheap on ebay)
Alessandro Music Series One
If you have any good online shop from UK pm me a link, please.
Any input much appreciated!
