While in-ear headphones make a lot of sense for portability, to get truly immersed in the music, we'd suggest over-ear headphones are the way forward.
While some of the biggest cans are aimed squarely at the hi-fi home listener, others are more portable - and the more stylish over-ear designs are increasingly popular for everyday use.
Here are our favourite pairs of over-ear headphones, ranging from just £17 to £700+.
Tested at £50 / Best price £39 at Amazon
Believe it or not, these £50 headphones sit at the top of AKG's new three-strong K-series and you get an incredibly good performance for your money. If you're looking for an affortable pair of headphones for home listening, these deserve an audition.
