    Budget? Do you want in-ear, on-ear or over-ear? Do you know if you specifically want active notice cancelling, or is it just strong isolation you're after?

    Just get some in-ear headphones from Sennheiser. They do an excellent job of drowning out most ambient noise because of where they sit. Shouldn't cost more than about £35.

    Sennheiser, Bose and Sony headphones are the best quality mass produced headphones.Rap and celebrity endorsed headphones like Beats and 50 cent SMS are overrated and overpriced.

    I'd second Sennheiser, you can get a basic pair of in-ear ones for about £15.

    If you want to use them in the gym they also do some awesome earbuds which are the best 'exercise' headphones I've ever had, they actually do stay in your head very well unlike most of the over the ear ones via a slightly different mechanism, it's worth the extra £££:

    best headphones you can get. I use them for Djing and they are specifically made for channeling out background noise.

    The best choice really. I love mine.

    £210 is mental though you can get them for a lot less on Amazon, think the basic editions are £120 now. That's a steal.

    Using beats for headphones is like hitting yourself in the head with a brick.

    You won't get noise cancelling at that price. :nope:

    You may have got a decent set on in ear ones that do going noise isolation, but as you say, you don't like them.

    I can't help much for on ear cans I'm afraid, I don't know that market that well.

    For on-ear, the Philips Citiscape Downtown.

    For over-ear, the Monoprice DJ headphones.

    Both are excellent sounding, well isolating headphones for the money, can't go wrong with either :yep: You went get active noise cancelling for such a low budget that isn't terrible sounding or ineffective.

    IN-ear headphones are the only thing for that money that will work really well in the tube.

    These headphones come with a variety of foam buds. One of them will fit your ears. Keep the volume low if they hurt your ears.

    Unless you buy expensive headphones, any on-ear or even over-ear headphones will deliver poor music quality on the noisy tube.

    Plus the in-ear ones are so easy to put in and take out.

    I don't agree personally, I've used on-ears and over-ears on the tube plenty of times over the last couple of years without any issues.
