    Hi.

    I'm looking for a set of headphones with cans big enough to sit right over my ears with plenty of clearance (not that I have massive Dumbo ears). Not pads that sit against the ear, which give me problems.

    They can be as clunky as you like, as they'll be used indoors or under a hoodie when out, or for long train journeys. They don't specifically need to be for portable media, although I'll be using them mostly with my ipod. Lets say no more than £100?

    Can anyone who's a headphone whizz throw some makes & models out there?

    Cheers.

    Fit is entirely individual. You can find plenty of over ear cans at that price - whether any will sit right off your ears is down to who they fit YOU.

    Yeah, I know, I just thought somebody out there who might be a headphones expert could provide a list of models which have cans large enough to fit over the average ear completely. I'll be buying online so I won't be able to try them, and not all listings cover details like this......

    The Audio Technica m50 are very highly rated over ear headphones and look like they have roomy earcups. They're over budget at around £130 but by all accounts are a bargain and should give a far superior sound to anything costing £100.

    The SoundMAGIC HP100 and H200 have particularly comfortable and large ear cups, but again are quite a bit over budget. The drivers are a massive 53mm and the pads are really big for a semi-portable pair.
