    Audio-Technica ATH-M30X is another choice, sony mdr v and zx series are also good.

    common are not sennheiser makes some of the finest dynamic headphones in the world today, for the price HD 280 pro is hard to beat specially in terms of build.

    I have a spare Panasonic Noise Cancellation active headphone set that I am not using. MRP would be around 50 GBP. You can have em for 35 if you are interested.

    Never used. Just worn once for 3-5 minutes for testing. Comes with carry case, cable, battery slot etc etc.

    AKG studio monitors are absolutely flat, I have heard them before. I have no idea about BD, but as far I know they are supposed to be pretty much as good as Senn.
