    Seriously? I've only heard good reviews for the sound.

    There not the worst headphones or anything but for how much they cost £100 - £150?

    There are many other headphones out there that destroy them in terms of sound quality

    OK, I hear you. I think, maybe because of the big musician names behind them? Anyway, I'm searching to see if I can find them cheaper anywhere online :teeth:

    OMG, I would really love a pair of one of these, but they're so ****ing expensive! Man, I really need a job right now!
    LOL, imo they're a bit too expensive - you're paying for the name if anything.

    I tried on a pair of Beats when I was headphone shopping, so amazing yet too expensive.

    £55 for a pair of Panasonic, great sound, look good, decent price. Panasonic RP-HTX7
    That said, the price was a fair while ago so it's dropped as the fellow below me has pointed out.

    Unfortunately you have to make a choice to an extent, you can either get something that sounds decent (Sennheiser, Grado, Audio-Technica, Ultrasone, Beyerdynamic, people who make real headphones basically) and looks like a pair of headphones or something that sounds poor/very mediocre, is ridiculously overpriced, and has a pretty pattern on it (Beats, Skullcandy). Bose fall into worst of both worlds, they're 'okay' headphones, but very overpriced and aren't 'pretty' like you want.

    Best bet is to look around and see if the good companies mentioned make anything you like the look of. The models listed by Dumachi are all good, but realistically pretty much any of the headphones those companies make will be far better than any Skullcandy/Dre junk.

    Edit: The Panasonic ones posted above are also okay for the money but, for the money, I mean the £20-30 you can buy them for online from Amazon/other places on Google product search. £55 would be a bit of a ripoff.

    I just fell for the purple one's :rolleyes:
    Personally having used them pretty much continuously since, I've loved every second.

    I had this dilemma a few weeks ago!

    In the end, I decided against some Sennheiser's because I'm off travelling so need something a little more compact. I bought these Pioneer SEMJ31's from amazon and they have been incredible so far. For just over £30 you can't go wrong if you ask me ... Ridiculously comfy and great sound quality. Also, when I went into a shop and compared the sound quality with some Sennheiser HD's a few days later, there was little if anything in it.

    All I'd say is, it's totally dependent on their purpose. If you're commuting, don't go to too bulky. If it's for listening at home/production/DJing you can go a bit over the top and go for the absolute best quality. Keep size in mind!

    the sound trash btw
    They don't. They're decent sound. Clarity is friggin awesome/

    But then I got mine for cheap as in £150, wouldn't buy them for the whole £279.

    Hello all!
    So, I'm considering buying those schnazzy big headphones (headband heaphones?) that all the cool kidz wear.

    If anybody could give advice as to which one's are the best (within a reasonable budget), that would be great!

    Oh and prettiness would be appreciated, cos' I'd like to keep my street rep relatively high.

    Thank-you! :cool:
    Shame you went for the beats, poor sound quality and super overpriced. That and they don't look /that/ good.

    You could've picked up the Audio-Technica's for cheaper, and they, imo, look a lot better (and more unique):

    Avoid Skull Candys and WESC because they sound ****, and are just made to look nice.

    Id recommend Sennheiser or Sony. I use Sennheiser and they are so awesome - Start relatively cheap aswell
