    I've been thinking of getting a pair of on-ear headphones, preferably less than £80. I've had a good look at the Marshall Majors, and I love the style, but am being put off a little by complaints about comfort and sound. Are there any other ones for this sort of price that are as good or better? (Preferably good-looking as well)

    I have the Marshall Majors. They look awesome and are fold-able - meaning they probably wont ever break. However yeah they do hurt your ears after a while. You could get much better quality for the price but for me no headphones look as cool as those.

    From what I've read and the time I've spent listening to them, the Plattans are overwhelmingly average. There are far better headphones even at such a low price point.

    Where will you be using them and what kind of music do you listen to?

    They're not on-ear, and cost more than £80. Given the recent surge in interest you'd be extremely lucky to find them for anything less than £100 first hand, aside from a couple of dubious looking retailers in Google Shopping.

    They're really for everyday use, i.e. out and about, on the bus etc. I pretty much exclusively listen to Guns n Roses, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, that sort of stuff.

    I'd recommend going for the Phillips Citiscape Downtown, they were met with lots of acclaim in the audiophile community when they launched at CEX this year as an affordable on-ear can. From what I've read of the sound signature they'll suit your listening tastes nicely [= They look pretty smart too.

    Skullycandy's budget offerings are terrible. The Beats line would require him to double his budget, and are also terrible =P

    Sennheiser are always a good shout [= the HD428s are also worth looking into OP.
