Hi, recently my Soundmagic PL50s are acting up and I'm looking to replace them, I have a budget of about €60 and I mainly listen to pop, rock and alot of podcasts. Sound quality isn't the most important thing to me because I listen to podcasts alot more than music, but comfort and sound isolation are important to me. I was thinking of buying either the
Meelectronics M11+ http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003VTZPOS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A7EL6FXUBCG7Z or just buying another pair of PL50s, and I'm just wondering if anyone has other suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks :)

Thanks for the suggestion I will check them out :)
And some additional info: I will be using these to listen to movies on my laptop also, and I find the stock Large Foam tips the most comfortable on my PL50s.

MEelectronic A151 is supposedly a great upgrade from PL50, i would also be interested in your broken PL50's...

I liked how they were very comfortable mainly, I thought the isolation was decent but not quite good enough. The sound quality was definitely good enough for me. To be honest maybe I should just buy them again but I'd like a change. Still leaning towards the M11+

check my suggestion out, theres a review in the review section at the bottom of the page now. What are you going to do with your broken PL50?

I'm returning them to amazon, they told me they would give me a full refund if I send them back. I was looking at the a151s but I cant find them under €60 when including delivery and they look to be similar to the M11+ but with better sound quality, which isn't that important to me as comfort and sound isolation. Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

From the amazon review "Good sound but not my choice for noise isolation", so guess not :)

The HF5s are a bit out of my price range but they look very good so maybe I should save up, the JVCs seem to not have good isolation so I don't think they are for me but thanks for the suggestion :)
