    I need to know what headphones are can buy that are very good with a mobile (Samsung Galaxy S3) I love Bass so they have to have a lot of bass. I'm looking at the t70p are they any good what's better and i am looking to spend £350 £400.

    Here's a list you can look at sorted by price, but you will notice scrolling down a bit that headphones in that price range just don't have really boosted bass. That's because the fewer number of people willing to spend that much want a more neutral sound. Maybe someone else here will have a suggestion.

    Hi Bass_Head,

    Don't just focus on the price - most headphones at the pricepoint you are looking at will have a linear type Hifi EQ or an even flatter production type EQ. Your forum name tends to suggest you like (as many men do) a big bottom end. You are less likely to find this the more you spend as this is not a sound associated with the uses of flagship headphones or highend studio equipment - they tend to be "accurate" which means bass is great but it is in correct proportion as opposed to elevated.

    The first place to look would be our review of the best headphones that includes what we consider to be the best headphone at each price point. Feel free to ask questions about any that catch your eye.

    Below are few more ideas based on your requirement. You need a low impedance, neat pair which are sturdy and closed back - probably with big bass - have a look at these -
