    My daughter is constantly borrowing my iGrados (purchased from hifiheadphones) but has asked for some portable headphones of similar sound quality that are closed back (for study use) and fit securely and comfortably for dance practice. Any recommendations, say up to 50-60 quid? I want to avoid buying something that ticks the other boxes but doesn’t sound as good as the Grados ...

    many thanks

    Hi Bill,

    The closest I have found to the Grado sound in a closed headphone at your price point is the Pioneer SE-MS7BT, but they are wireless and £99.

    There is the SE-MS5T which I believe to be the same model, and drivers, just wired only, and they would likely suit your daughters needs, she obviously has good taste if she enjoys the Grados.
