Hey all,

First time post in the headphones section so hope you can help me out!

I have a set of B&W P5 that I use for commuting but this summer they have left me a little uncomfortable as they make my ears boiling hot, so much so that I have using my old Ultimate Ears buds.

I much prefer the rich sound of large headphones, but the PVC finish on many, doesn't really work for me.

Can you recommend any decent cloth finished headphones to keep my cloth ears cool?!

Budget is circa £200, main use is commuting.

beauty, eh
