    Something Grado like in style but cheaper is the order of the day :D

    Many thanks for any pointers.

    Koss Porta Pro for £25 odd? Not so much in Grado style, but the AKG Y50 are unbeatable for £50.

    Ooh, the Porta Pro looks very cool retro.... BUT....

    I got a pair of Y50's for £29 :eek:

    Also, not sure how the Portas would fair when outdoors with traffic etc.

    Not that well, because they don't seal ear from outside noises.
    (just like that Grado)
