Any good suggestions ? Noise cancelling is nice but not essential, decent closed cups to cut down noise will be sufficent (if a good make)

Budget is about £03-%30 to hook up to my MP3 player when on the train or plane

So far looking at these ones----

Sennheiser PX250 (with active noise cancelling)

Sony MDRNC6

Sony MDRV300

    I use these CX 300's

    They block a lot of noise out like an earplug, very very comfortable & very good sound quality.

    i have bose in-ear hedphones. brilliant sound; like no other, and it cancels out noise a bit too, plus a free 2 year warrenty i think when you buy them. plus they have little rubber things to allow them to fit properly in your ear.
    I said hit the brakes not the tree!!

    I've got some Plantronics P590, which are 3 headsets in one. They are a bluetooth headest for your mobile phone that can be hardwired to a mp3 player etc, anything with a 3.5mm earphone socket and can also connect to a mp3 player via bluetooth with their own transmiter. Can't fault the sound quality but they were £65.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Shure E2Cs or something or another. £29.99 from www.amazon.co.uk at the moment, usually get sold for £49.99. Just bought a pair for use in college and cant hear anything. This is in a noisy IT room btw. Good for trains too.

    Hope this helps.
