Why?
Wires are bad and I need a second pair.
I listened to a pair of Sennheiser Over-Ear Momentum, but can't quite afford them. Especially not the wireless version.
 
What quality?
I own a pair of Steelseries Siberia v2 - some gaming headset that got at least decent reviews here.
If they were wireless I could survive but  probably demand a lower price than £100.
 
How much from where?
Around £100. Prefer lower.
Live in UK. Don't mind import and I don't mind second hand - if I can clean them properly.
 
Examples?
These all look alright, been leaning towards the AKG ones because of reviews and design. 
They are all slightly over my price range but I am willing to wait for a deal or a second hand pair if I must.
 
AKG K845BT
Sony XB950BT
JBL E50BT
Koss BT540i
 
 
What for?
Mostly Skype chat,, dubstep/house/electronic and bass heavy things. 
I have experienced headache testing bass heavy headphones previously so heavy bass is not a requirement
Secondly movies, metal and classical. 
 
Extras?
If I can plug a cable and mic into the headphones and turn them into a headset it would be amazing.
Have been looking at mod mic and v-moda headset cable. Possible?
 
 
Final thoughts?
I got my current pair free as a prize. Before this I would have considered £30 as expensive for a pair of headphones.
I travel a lot and I dragged these around to several countries already. I would not accept anything in the price range to break easily. 
Also, my first post I guess.
 
Super thanks to any replies!

Thanks!
 
I have been looking at, it seems my chosen ones are not his favourite ones. I'm thinking if that could be because his used to a bit higher priced ones? Or could I be wrong? Would like to hear someone compare the pair I'm used to to the price class I'm thinking about.

I have no idea.

On average, head-fiers are not that into bluetooth headphones because you take a performance hit over wired headphones of the same price. So not so many people doing lots of bluetooth headphone comparison on here.

They seem to be on ear and open styled, rather than closed. But thanks for the suggestion! Very unique design!

Yeah that's true. I think I might be in general too low priceclass for anyone around here to bother comparing. Thanks though :)
