    good headphones for £20

    I bought an MP3 player and need some new headphones (those supplied aren't great) so what can you recomend for the £20 mark?

    I want the in or over ear type (not huge cans).
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    some will argue that you can not buy good headphones for £20. Its a case of you get what you pay for in this area. Can you up the budget slightly?

    I got some Sennheiser ones for about £8 on eBay. Work great for me, only problem is the lead is 1m, long which is fine for an MP3 player, but not quite long enough to reach my Hifi next to me

    +1 for Sennheisers.
    I got a pair of HD 205's for £14.99 from Zavvie earler this year.
    Best ever purchase.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    I have yellow Sennheiser Px-100's for work - look a bit old scool and too big I guess. Must be careful for ebay knock-off's when getting Sennheiser headphones.

    I personally use these sony in ear headphones, only 10 quid on amazon. Don't really like the shape of other earphones and find them uncomfortable, but these fit great and have good bass.

    Thanks for all your advice, I'll see if I can find a shop that will let me try some before buying (like;y chance1).
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
