    Hey guys and girls.

    Basically, I'm looking to buy myself a nice pair of 'On-ear' headphones, preferably under the £100 mark.

    Preferably, something reasonably lightweight and compact, for use everywhere, including on the go.

    Unfortunately, I cannot stand in-ear headphones. The sound quality is very good, but these things don't stay in, and they hurt, a lot. And before you ask, I have tried to use them for a long time, to try to get used to them, but I clearly just have odd shaped ears. :eek:

    To give an idea, I like the style of the Skullcandy lowriders, but was under impressed with the sound quality, and to be honest, I'm not a fan of the whole 'graffiti' design they've got going on.

    Any ideas?

    Ta.

    Audio-Technica is great! They make excellent headphones. Of course, Sennheiser does, too. But indeed, the Audio-Technicas seem to be the best bang for the buck.

    iGrado, I would recommend the other Grado's but they aren't for anything but at home listening.
