    Jealous of you. I've only had the SE110s before and I loved them to pieces. Blocked out noise better than anything I've had before and really good quality sound too.

    Do not get skullcandy headphones. -_-

    Sennheisers are good. I have CX300-IIs, got them for about £18 on Amazon, HMV sells them for £34.99. There are far better ones out there but for what they are, they're pretty damn good. I like bass enhancement you see. :p:

    I don't think these are gonna be good..considering the ad and the look of the earphones...im like more into good stuff..like sennheiser, audiotechnica,bose,those stuff!!
    Without a doubt, I can assure that the BeckenBower's will trump audiotechnica.

    Apparently BeckenBower produces their headphones in the same factory as Sennheiser and Monster Beats, and when i compare them to my Sennheiser CX500's, they're definitely on par, except the BeckenBower's are about £10-£15 cheaper!

    Bose on the other hand...well they're Bose, need I say more

    £250 eh? If you're going to spend that much money on an earphone, make sure to do your research on your final choice of IEM/headphone. Personally, I would suggest going over the www.Head-Fi.org (dedicated to headphone gear etc.) where you will actually get good suggestions for your budget.

    For headphones, I was going to suggest a pair of Sennheiser HD600, but to get the best out of them, you'll need an amp etc., I don't think you'll want that. So I'm going to rule possibly all headphones as an option out.

    Now, onto in-ear phones (known as IEM's, or In Ear Monitors). Depending on if you like bass, or you like treble better, I'm sure it can be matched (each IEM has a different sound (namely called its signature). If you like bass or perhaps want a smooth IEM, can I suggest the Sennheiser IE8's? If you like rich mids (typically human voices frequency), perhaps the Shure 530's may suit you? Or perhaps detailed headphones - maybe the Triple Fi 10's?

    Look at the respective price IEM bracket to give you an idea as to what to get: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/...m3-added-12-20
