Cheap Portable Headphones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, looking for a good pair of portable headphones that
a/ aren't ugly or hefty - as shallow as that sounds
b/ sound good all-round, I have sketchy tastes - not meaning to sound pretentious
c/ fall under £40 / ~$75 as a price limit

I used to have a pair of shure e2c until one of the cables broke () and would like a quality of that level replaced if possible.

I realise the budget is really tight but any thoughts would be appreciated.

Some options I've come up with so far are:
Beyerdynamic DT 231
Panasonic RP-HTX7
Skullcandy (not sure what model yet)

Thanks in advance

Additional q:
How leaky is the alessandro ms-1? would I be able to get away with wearing it on say, a train? or not?

other alternatives I've found are:
Sennheiser HD 201/205/215
AKG K518DJ
iGrado


no clue what to choose out of all of these though!

What type of music do you listen to and what type of sound signature do you like? Also, whats your source?

I got myself a pair of AKG K518DJs recently for about £30 on ebay, they're portable and have a decent sound to them (for the price.) I can heartily recommend them for the outlay, good enough for the commute for me.

whatever you do, DO NOT get skullcandy.
I'd say the PortaPro isn't a bad idea, quite cheap as well. (around $40 on ebay).

Very leaky. They're almost like speakers.
