Hey all, as you can see this is my first post. I came here looking for some reputable advice on my next purchase (granted, it's not exactly much of an investment with my student budget). Hopefully you guys can direct me towards a good pair of cans for the little money I can throw at them.
My last pair were rp-htx7s, which I believe are fairly respectable for their price range. I broke them in quickly and then broke them altogether by wrestling with the cable too much at the plug, which is why I'm ideally looking for a replacement pair with a detachable cable. Whilst I was going to try and find something in the same price range, I'm happy to spend as much as I would maybe on Grado's SR60i. Before deciding I wanted a pair with a detachable cable, I'd also considered Marshall Majors, but it fell short in most reviews.
So, basically I'm looking for a pair for around about £75 with a detachable cable *or* with a cable you can vouch will last a decent amount of time. Additionally, if you could recommend me an entry-level portable amplifier too that would be swell. As you may have thus figured, the headphones will be predominantly for out-and-about use and travelling. I tend to listen to acoustic/folk-y kinds of things, and occasionally some more rock-y stuff. Hopefully that info is of some use to you and I'm not just drivelling.
Many thanks in advance :)
