Headphones - where do I start?

My other half is always complaining about the rubbish tv that's on the box and would like to be able to shut out the noise when listening to the stereo. Can anybody recommend any that are good for under £100 or is that not likely? I have looked into some Bose in ear ones, but I know the popular choice would be on ear.

Re: Headphones - where do I start?

Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones look about the ticket - £100, closed-back with very good exclusion of outside sound and fine-sounding, too.

Wouldn't bother with noise-cancelling headphones - they're best with steady-state noise such as plane engines, etc., rather than the sound from your TV.

you should be able to pick up some used Gardo SR125's for that money. Although they dont exclude outside noise they have detail to die for at this price point and i am still very much in love with mine!

Re: Headphones - where do I start?

sorry andrew but his post is not very well worded... i cant tell wether he is saying his wife doesnt want to be able to hear the rubbish on tv whilst she is listening to the stereo or wether he wants headphones so his wife doesnt have to listen to what he is watching on TV or listening to on the stereo. Surely as an editor you are aware of most people poor grasp of the english language...
