    Hi,

    I'm looking for a reasonable set of "over ear" headphones (not IEMs or "buds") for use with my mobile phone (Android).

    Budget: £30 to £50

    Must have:
    • inline remote (for tracks forward and back etc.)
    • Blocks out sound (used mostly on the train and walking to/from the train)
    • Keeps sound in (again, on the train - don't want to bug everyone else with my taste in music!)
    • Quality: These will be in and out of a rucksack, although I do take care of my stuff, but nothing to flimsy
    • Comfort - will be listened to for approx. 1 hour at a time - so comfy but not "ultra comfy" needed

    The only ones I've been able to find with half decent reviews are Sennheiser PX 200 IIis.

    Anything else out there better/cheaper?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Dez

    You might consider an after market headphone case in any event. The PX series fold up and all but I understand for second gen you only get a soft pouch, whereas first gen PX series comes with a nice compact hard case
