Headphones advice needed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, first post here! Nice to be on board :gs1000smile:

So i've been needing some headphones ever since my old ones broke, and i need some advice.

My budget is around £50-£80 (roughly $80-$130). Cannot go higher than £80.
I will mainly be listening to thrash metal, hard rock, shred and classical music. I know classical music is quite far removed from the others, but it is imperative that this sounds good.

I will also listen to a bit of softer rock, indie, rap, jazz and pop, but these are not too important. I get the feeling I am going to need quite a versatile set.

They need to be as comfortable as possible when worn for long periods (4-5 or more hours) of time.

They MUST be either over ear or on ear- no earbuds or in ear headphones please.
Also, it would be appreciated if they were not too hideous- obviously sound and comfort come first, but i would like a good looking pair if possible.

All answers appreciated.

What sources are you plugging the headphones into?

Does it matter if the headphones are open or closed?

Headphones used in private or out in public?
