I'd prefer to spend between £50-£100. (For anyone not in the UK, god knows what that translates to in your money. If it helps, the Sennheiser HD280pro, Creative Aurvana, and Sony MDR-NC60 all seem to fall within that price range.)
I'll be listening to quite a lot of mp3s and spotify tracks, so preferably something that masks their shortcomings. I listen to all types of music, electro, classical, jazz, rock, drum'n'bass, everything and anything really. So a good all round performance would be ideal, though I tend to prefer a more bassy or 'warm' tone. For example, I recently bought a set of Goldring DR50's which had some good reviews for their clarity, yet I couldn't stand them, far too thin a sound for my ears.
Finally, these will be worn on the go and I have a huge problem with wires, so with any luck theres something with only around 1.2m of cord and a neat 3.5mm jack - no cord winders, bulky 6.5mm adapters or amps.
Can anyone help?
