    Hi,
    I'm looking to get some new headphones to replace my HD210's which were binned a little while ago.

    I would like some for watching moves at appropriate volumes (read: loud) without upsetting the mrs or the neighbours, so I'd probably need a 3 metre cable to reach my AV amp and also for listening to music, I've a wide range of tastes from rock/metal, classical, electronic, jazz/blues etc, good dynamics but not excessive at any end of the spectrum.

    I also study and I want some that I can wear to dampen the ambient noise without music playing, but not so much that it's completely silent, so a closed design is probably best, the cable should be detatchable and also comfortable to wear for at least 2 hours at a time. I found the Sennheisers rather uncomfortable frankly but I'd still like to stick with a circumaural design.

    My budget is sub-£100 but flexible if it's worth it.

    Could you suggest some models that might fit this picture?

    Thanks,
    David

    Here's the list I use. Just scroll down to your price range and see what you think.

    Hi Dnel,

    This is an amazing headphone for the price -

    Fostex TH-7

    And you would have enough left for one of these -:)

    The TH7 shows "out of stock". Is it likely to arrive soon?

    Edit: Ha! The cable also shows out of stock. Double bad luck.
