Help buying over/ on ear headphones
I want to buy some new headphones, looking in the range of £100 - 150 (I'm from England) but could be persuaded up to and maybe slightly above £200 if it's worth the extra money.
Not sure wether I want on or over ear headphones...
I listen to a range of music but mostly rock and alternative music, sometimes hip-hop/ rap, indie, reggae. I guess an all rounder would be good. Would quite like the headphone to have good bass but don’t want to sacrifice mids and highs for it.
I’d mainly use them in my room whilst working but I’d also use them for walking into uni so I don’t think open earphones would work for me (although I’m not an expert so I’m still open to suggestions).
Would also like them to be comfy to wear around the neck because that’s normally where they go when I’m not using them (will probably wear them round my neck through lectures, although maybe not) which is the reason I’d like a detachable jack for the wire that goes into the headphones and just for ease of putting the cable through a jumper/ t-shirt.
Style - not a massive fan of some of the plastic in some headphones I've seen and I’m not sure about brown (maybe leather/ fake leather). Would preferably like a sleek, plain coloured pair of headphones (probably black/ grey). Although this is the least important attribute I’d quite like them to look good if I’m paying a lot of money for them.
I realise sound is the main thing and I'm considering the V-moda M80s but would still like some other options.
Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK that I’d be able to listen to a pair? And would they be broken in as well?
Bit of background:
Had a pair of V-moda crossfade LPs last year but they started making a weird clicking sound when I stepped off pavements or ran so I sent them back (to be fair I did sleep in them a lot which I won’t be doing with my new ones). I’m having trouble finding a new pair of headphones that have the features I liked about the crossfades but I’m not sure I want another pair.
Currently own an okay(ish) pair of sennheisers that I had before my crossfades, not really needed them much cos I’ve just used my speakers in my room but I think I’ve been annoying some of my flat mates and a good pair of headphones would also be useful in everyday life and when travelling.
