    Can anyone here recommend me some quality sub-100quid headphones?

    I've looked around and there are just so many!!

    Im not after wireless particularly as i wouldn't want to be replacing batteries every week.

    Thanks!

    Any sennheiser HD's 580 or higher

    Grado's are great if you want a totally flat response.

    I have a pair of Technics RP-F350 headphones.
    They cost £29.99 and they are great for everything... Games, Music, Movies and everything really.

    The sound is right at your ears (dosn't sound like the sound is comming from inside the earphones like some :confused: ).

    I've heard that Sennheiser earphones are great, but i've yet to try a pair, but my Technics earphones are awesome aswell!

    I used to use some really neat earbuds and they gave very good sound but I found them to be a bit too delicate and after a few months of using them, dropping them, getting the wires tangled etc... the sound from 1 of the ears stopped working

    :(

    I also find earbuds are not really convinient for proper PC and gaming use as they are designed for personal music etc,

    It's your own preference I suppose, I've tried both earbuds and headphones and I prefer headphones

    :)

    depending what your using it for i say. Ive got the plantronics audio .90 which is about 25 pounds. try the dsp 500. But if you want just for listening music or movies any sinehieser/technics would be nice.
