    I would like to find out what is the best full size headphones to use with an iPod please?

    The price range should be around £25-£35ish.

    I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser HD 205 II but they are on their way back to Amazon because they are faulty, and to be fair I was unimpressed with them.

    Before they packed in, I really enjoyed my AKG K26G but the sound leak was bad.

    Hope you can help!

    Hi Merton69

    At this price range there is not really anything earth shatteringly good. Some of the nicest headphones for iPod use come in under £150 but sub £80 there is always going to be a great deal of compromise. If you can use an open back then grab one of these

    Koss PortaPro Headphones (Folding Headband)

    or save a bit extra and grab

    Grado iGrado Neckband Headphone in Black

    For closed back these two are interesting

    Sennheiser HD202-II Closed-Back Headphones (HD 202-II)


    Audio-Technica ATH-T200 Closed Back Hi-Fi Headphones (T200)
