    Hey,

    Type (In ear/Ear bud/Circumaural/Supra-aural): Anything will do.
    Budget: £1-£150
    Musical preference (What do you listen to?): Rock, D&B, screamo, some heavy.
    Headphones preference (Quite bassy, detailed, warm, bright, forward mids etc...):
    Any other details: I want something that looks nice, has good base, good sound quality, noise cancelation, preferably go quite loud (more movies), controsl to skip music like the iPhone headphones and maybe mic.


    Thanks!

    edit

    I did have Skullcandy, though they are good sound, they break really easy and the plastic seems low quality

    They supposedly have durability issues though.

    There is a stickied thread for this, it's the [thread template].

    Lol the goal was to post in that thread. But since this is here, it isn't doing much harm. Hm there aren't any good headphones that I know of that have the controls. I'll leave the model specifications to chung, but I can just give you some general stuff.

    IEM's (that go in your ear) tend to have better noise isolation then over ear headphones. So if that is a big priority you're going to want to look into IEM's.

    EDIT: Actually i lied, here's a specific one. I'm not sure about these specifically, but I have the Pro version and am very pleased with them. Noise isolation is great.

    Edited post. check that out. Unfortunately I don't know the dollars to pounds conversion but it should be in your price range.

    The dual drivers produce great bass, since one is purely bass and the other is mids and highs.

    As for controls you could simply get some of this
    http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/smarttalk

    Bose phones have realy good noise cancelling but the sound lacks - you have to get to a store and listen to them before you are acctualy buying a pair of these - also they are pretty comfortable

    Otherwise You could also use Isolation instead of cancellation - Its currently pretty late over here so I am kinda to tired to think about all the headphones and which ones to recommend for your sound signature - i will leave that up for tomorow or others
