    So my current ones have the done the usual gay headphone shit and for no reason stopped working in 1 ear.

    So any of you know a good pair for no more than £50.

    Mainly looking for best sound. Good, deep bass (picking up multiple levels) is of high importance.

    Something to skip tracks would be of use also.

    ok so this is what you do.

    1) go into town and go to HMV or whatever stores are still left that sell headphones

    2) buy a set of £100 headphones IN CASH

    3) leave the shop with bag receipt and headphones

    4) give the headphones to your mate who is waiting outside

    5) walk back into the store with the bag and the receipt

    6) get a new set of headphones off the shelf and put them in the bag with receipt

    7) go get a refund saying "apparently my mum has already bought my sister some headphones for christmas"

    8) Leave with cash

    Have you got them Craig?

    Sennheiser have always been good when I've had stuff before (proper big heaphones and a mic).

    I have owned a pair of these and I can confirm that the audio quality, frequency response and bass dynamic are good..............for the price.

    only issue I have ever had with them, is they don't tend to last that long.

    Mine ahve always broker after a year or so.

    Anyone know of any that are slighly above £50 that are worth the extra bit?

    i'd rather pay £70, if the sound quality is that much better.

    So just get a more expensive model?

    Any specific you know?

    Beats are gash for the price. If they were a third of the price they might then possibly be worth a purchase. But not for the price they are.

    I have a pair of Audeo Phonak 012, they're insanely comfortable and have a nice deep bass.

    Also got a pair of Fischer Audio eterna's, the bass on them is unbelievably powerful, almost too much, but it's good for moving around london with.

    Look in to Atomic Floyd, new pairs often go on ebay auctions fairly cheap.

    Also Shure probably make the best in ears if you're willing to pay a bit more, I'd go Shure over Sennheiser any day for in ears.

    My old in ears recently bust and I did a shit load of research to get a decent pair!

    Denon AH-C400 also highly rated.

    take a look at shure se215 if you thinking about spending a few extra quid had mine nearly two years and love them. I had a few pairs of cx300's and they all gave way after a few months, in the long run youll save money and be listening to better quality audio.

    I've never heard of them before Jack but by the guff they are spilling in the description they won't be fantastic.

    that just sounds shit, and I don't trust it
