Panasonic HTF600. They're probably the best sub £50 headphones I know of, if you have a search around headfi you'll see everyone raving about them. If you listen to more upbeat music these basically become some of the most fun headphones on the market. They also have an amazing soundstage if you're playing games.

EDIT : ONly buy these if you're good at looking after your things. I'm quite heavy handed with my stuff and I broke these within about half a year. Look after them and they'll serve you well.

Thanks all for your input and advice, after debating over the weekend and reading lots of reviews on Headfi I decided on the Panasonics. They should be here in a day or two
