I know its a low budget, but any recommendations please?

Would take audio clarity over bass reproduction.

I have found so far:

Sennheiser HD485 - £48.99
Sennheiser HD515 - £59.99 - Over budget but are they worth it?

Will primarily be connected to a PC.

Many Thanks.

From what I've read, the HD485 is mostly bass reproduction over clarity. Unfortunately I don't know much about full sized options in this price range (most on-ear portables will be too uncomfortable for use).

Not sure what they cost in your part of the world: ATH Ad700 or HD555.

Well, I've found the cheapest (europe) for the hd555 at 80 pounds and the Ad700 at 120 pounds wich I cant afford them now, But are those two much better than the Hd485 to justify the diference in price?

For HD555 it may be worth it. Why?

Because spending 30 minutes to mod them makes them a GREAT can for the price. The price vs. quality ratio is really good for these.

They are very easily serviceable and still, the price of 80 pounds is not that bad.

I got them myself for computer use, modded them and I really like them.
