Decent Foldable Headphones

    • Thread Starter

    Hello everyone. I'm in the market for some decent headphones that I can use at work and while travelling to and from. Looking to spend up to £50. Thinking that foldable ones might be the best compromise if I'm going to be using them on the train but they obviously need to be pretty comfortable if I'm going to be using them several hours a day.

    I've looked around at reviews and whatnot but if you believe the Internet then almost every pair of headphones in the world is completely crap. Can anyone offer any suggestions?


    Sennheiser PX200-ii are a couple of quid over on amazon, you might be able to find them cheaper elsewhere if you shop around. However they're well regarded foldable cans, in this price range at least.

    Also AKG K450 good aswell.

    If you're still hunting, have a look at (especially the table at the bottom -

    Note that prices are in $ and you can probably get cheaper on amazon. The 'street price' of the ones Gofre suggests is $90, whereas on amazon it's currently £45. Take from that what you will.
