    I'm looking to replace my Motorola S305 headphones. I prefer over-ear headphones because they're more comfortable but I'm not a fan of having big cans hanging off my ears or a giant band over my head, which I why I liked the Motorolas, but I can't seem to find any slim over-ear headphones on the market?

    Can anybody recommend some? Slim, over-ear and Bluetooth are my only requirements.

    I have a pair of Bowers & Wilkins P3s which I absolutely love. Incredibly comfortable, sound great, and not too big. I'm no audiophile but they're probably the best headphones I've owned.

    They do some wireless ones now that might be worth checking out if your budget permits...

    I've been using AirPods in the winter under my beanie hat. Now that I've gotten used to the wireless, I might have to invest in a pair before the summer.

    I second the recommendation for Bowers & Wilkins; I love them and cannot recommend them highly enough.

    For my part, I have the P3s, which I like, and the elegant, and yes, quite slim P5s, which I adore - and which have travelled the world with me - stylish, unobtrusive, comfortable, portable and offering an excellent audio experience; I also have the P7s, but I tend to use them only when I am at home.

    The other thing I love about these is that if the cable wears out, you can just replace the cable cheaply without having to replace the actual headphones. And the same with the pad bits over the ears - they easily detach and are replaceable.

    So they should last a long time.
