So with Xmas coming up my good lady wife has said she will buy me some new cans. However with Baby Whysalli on the scene the budget is limited to a maximum of £70.00. I have never had any headphones apart from the in ear type so am a virgin to this type of thing. Some basic information.... I mainly listen to blues and rock music (more guitar led than bass led, think Def Leppard) Not sure about noise cancelling, they will mainly be used for walking to work. However the good lady isn't keen on some of my music. Basically pro's and con's would be good. I do listen to other stuff including metal and classical but they are not such a priority (unless a pair of headphones exist that do it all for not much money ) Looks wise I don't want anything to big and heavy (its a long walk to work), black would be a preference for colour. They need to look reasonably good otherwise the good lady won't buy them. I don't have a preference on brand either so throw anything into the ring.
