Hello,
 
I'm planning to get a headphones from local store for under 50 euros. I live in quite noisy environment, therefore I really want over-ear headphones with a decent noise isolation and they should be more or less portable and great looking. I would use headphones for music, rock mostly, and electro sometimes. Removable cord would be a great feature, because I don't really trust cable strength, although I prefer wired over wireless connection.The current headphones I consider to buy are Skullcandy hesh 2.0  (46 EUR), Philips SHO5300(49 EUR), Takstar TS-660 (39 EUR) (very doubtful) , Panasonic RP-HX550 (48EUR), Razer Electra (42 EUR)(If there will be any in stock). Or any other headphones from this website : http://tiptop.lt/multimedia/ausines-mikrofonai/page:9/sorting:2/limit:36
 
Looking forward to hear some more experienced opinions. Thanks.

When you say you want "decent noise isolation," I assume you want a closed can rather than an open one (?). Or am I wrong? Some open cans in your price range do have a "decent" degree of isolation (esp semi-open varieties), just so you know. In any case, if you can clarify this for us, we can help you more efficiently.

Yes, I'm talking about closed cans. I just need big headphones for my music. I'm not experienced in this field, therefore, I assume any headphones around this price range would sound great for me. But still I'm looking for the best option. I hope I made myself clear :)

  Takstar Pro 80
+1 Get this if you can.
 
Otherwise the Creative Aurvana Live! is best one on that website you linked but it leaks/lets in more sound than normal closed headphones.

They're not very appealing to me. And they're not that comfortable, also feels very plastic. :p My dad has couple of broken ones of these.

Try looking in the Somic and Superlux lines then. You could always buy the Takstar online via aliexpress

If you really have to buy from that site I recommend getting the extra 6 euros and buying creative aurvana live. If that is not possible check out these two philips headphones http://tiptop.lt/ausines-philips-headband-headphones-shl3300bk   and  http://tiptop.lt/ausines-philips-citiscape-headband-headphones-8
 
For a third option I would go with Tracer Crystal. http://tiptop.lt/ausines-headphones-audio-crystal-profesional

No idea how those sound but atleast those look durable  :)
 
But seriously...if possible buy takstar, superlux etc from somewhere else. Tiptop store has bad selection of headphones...

Now for the last time. I'm left choosing from creative Aurvana live and Audiotechnica ath-fc707 going to order one of these this week. Aurvana looks more like a full size headphones, but built quality worries me very much.  I watched tons of reviews but still have no clue if any of these has any noise isolation.
