Been researching the web in my search for headphones. Based on many reviews and comments from people more knowledgeable than I I've narrowed it down to 2 choices.
B&W P3 - available from John Lewis with a 2 year warranty for £169
V-Moda M80 - currently available on amazon for £114 (reduced from £160).
Both seem to get good reviews. My listening habits are largely iTunes AAC+ format on iPod or iPad. Ranging from Radiohead, the Jam and the Smiths to Tinie Tempah, Mumford & Sons and Cat Stevens. So, fairly broad taste.
I want one set on on ear phones for home use and portable. Not interested in noise cancellation but some isolation is good. I prefer to be aware of my surroundings however.
Design is important but sound quality more so. Can't audition the V-Modas anywhere in the UK so I'm reliant on advice.
Any thoughts - which of my 2 options should I go for. I'm leaning towards M80 given the current pricing.
