    Beyerdynamic are the other ones to look out for...

    My recommendation is the Koss R80 or Ministry of Sound DJ1002. I couldn't possibly suggest a place to buy them though.

    Oh, and just to confuse matters, they really could do with a mic !

    this entire Headphone thing is quite the most infuriating this ever,

    What we need is:

    Light weight
    Big ear pads....we want our ears IN them. The pads must be velvet for no sweaty ears
    Long cable, preferably removeable incase it needs swapping
    And a MICROPHONE....

    Sennhesier PC150 is the nearest but is still no way close to perfect
    http://www.sennheisercommunications.co.uk/pr-pc150.html

    These IDEAL would be this...HD570's...WITH A MIC CLIPPED ON THE SIDE.

    http://www.sennheiser.co.uk/products.jsp?id=04485

    I have these headphones. They are pure sex....but no mic

    I am immensley lucky to have found a pair of Medusa's that DO WORK.....they are still not even close to HD570's for pure class.

    Have to agree with Zak - I bought a pair of HD570s 8 months ago and I must say they are one of the best things I've ever spent any money on. Honest truth. I love them to bits. The only way you could perfect them would be a removable microphone. That and perhaps make the cups a couple of millimeteres larger in diameter. Other than that, they're perfect. I have no gripes with them whatsoever.
