Open-back model sells for £70, and is designed for both mobile and home use

Described as "the perfect solution for very high-quality replay from anything with a 3.5mm jack socket," this is the new HD238 Precision from Sennheiser, the first open-back model in the company's 200 series.

Designed for home or mobile use. though obviously not in noisy environments or where sound leakage is a problem, they sell for £70, weigh just 286g, and combine a compact, fold-flat design with a carrying pouch.

They have soft, flat ear-pads and adjustable ear-cups for comfort, the pads can be exchanged for durability, and there's a single-side cable to avoid tangles.
