    Just had the left ear slider break of the head piece and not sure what to get next.

    Unfortunately I find most headphones to small to fit and I do like large ear cups that cover the ears, not rest on them.

    What would people say is a good replacement for these, £70-100 range. I like listening to rock, metal, classical, old school at work. If that info helps?

    TYIA.

    That's one of those nothing but bass cans so any actually good headphone is going to sound lot different.

    And are you using it on PC or what?

    Used on a PC while at work only. If there is a good one for that type of money, let me know, only bought those as we got a discount and they fit my head really good.

    I guess closed would be better in a work place and you'd need something that will be easy enough for the onboard audio to drive (assuming you aren't using a sound card).

    Beyerdynamic DT770 80 ohm, is a good closed headphone. Just a smidge over budget at £103.
