Help! Value for money headphones less than £100

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I used to own some Philips Citiscape Uptowns which I absolutely loved (save for the faulty mic cable) until they broke and I endured a near 3 month battle for a replacement/refund which has put me off returning to them.

Basically I'm keen to replace now and am not sure what to get....

 

They will be needed for everyday use for extended periods of time on public transport and throughout the day spend time in my school bag.

So they need to be over ear headphones for the bus and of good build quality to stand up to the vigours of frequent movement tucked away inside my bag.

I also will be using them in the music studio too for recording and use on DAWs eg Cubase.

 

The music I mainly listen to is 21st Century Alternative Rock (Post Punk Revival stuff), Psychedelic Rock, Drum and Bass and some smatterings of Jazz. The same more or less applies to what I'll be making myself in the studio.

 

The pair I've got my eyes on at the moment are Sennheiser HD215 (the detachable cable looks a bonus too). That gives you an indication of my price bracket although if there are some which really fit the bill I could extend my budget.

 

I'm open to suggestions, thanks!

ATH-M50s are very durable headphones: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Technica-ATH-M50-Monitor-Professional-Headphones-Black/dp/B000ULAP4U/

Sony MDR-7506 another durable headphone: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-MDR-7506-Headphones-Wired/dp/B000AJIF4E/

Both of these are very good price/performance values with good sound smily_headphones1.gif
