My last pair (Koss PortaPros) broke at the end of the cable by the jack, as cheap ones usually do with me. So I need some more, and I wondered . . .

What headphones do Pitmonkeys use? On-ear that is.

My on-ear headphones are B+W P5 headphones.

If you give me an idea of your budget and what genre of music you mainly listen to, I can give you a professional opinion.


Ah cool. Umm, anything with a guitar in basically, mainly heavier stuff or fusion. £50 would be my budget, but if there are a pair a bit over that are amazing I'll stretch :P

How do you find the neckband with that? Is it strong? Does it slide down your head sometimes?

it goes over your head, not behind

and its fits well, the band itself is a bit elastic, and the ear parts are fairly big, so your ears wont get soar after some hours

Grado SR60i. A good amount of low end to them, but still have a great level of detail. However, they are £90. Within your budget for over ears, there's the Grado iGrado at £45. I would seriously give the extra budget a think about though. I've given a fair few things a damn good audition at the hifi store I work at as assistant manager and for the price, Grado comes off very well. Very popular with the customers too.

They look cool. How reinforced is the cable at the ends? That's what broke with my Koss ones. I'd stretch for them if they are reliable too.

+1. They're open cans though, so if you're worried about annoying everyone around you with your music, don't get these. I've heard good things about these for closed-back budget headphones.

I think he wants small headphones that he can walk around with as opposed to huge cans.

Very reliable. The lad I work with (who I leapfrogged from christmas temp to assistant manager ) has had a pair since they came out with no issue.
