The Sennheiser HD 380 pro looks interesting. Aardvark who is also in the UK said it is available for around 106 quid. Imo active noise cancelling damages the sound, so I don't like the idea of using it. Is this for portable use? If so, then imo an iem might be a better choice. If it is for home use, then look at the other headphones Aardvark is considering in his thread.

For home use I would say something like the HD380 pro, however I wouldn't want to walk around wearing that. For use outside your home,, I would look for a compact headphone, or earbuds or iems. If you plan to cross through intersections while wearing it, then I would suggest using an open headphone or earbuds for safety reasons. Imo it makes sense to have a different headphone for home use than what you use while walking around.
