Headphones on budget - advice appreciated

Hi guys!

 

I'm looking for a new headphones but I'm on budget. I'm thinking on these 3:

 

Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT brand new from Sennheiser website for 70 pounds.

House of Marley Liberate XLBT from HMV for 70 pounds.

Skullcandy Hesh 3 new on ebay (don't know if they have any warranty) for 45 pounds.

 

Any other suggestions? Wireless is not a must be to me, could go without it.

I'm not in the headphones world so have no idea how they perform.

 

I don't care about the look, what matters is only sound and comfort.

My understanding is that

My understanding is that Skullcandy headphones are targetted at youngsters who enjoy electronic music. I would guess that House of Marley are also targetted at people who like reggae and reproduce that well.

I briefly had a pair of cheap Skullcandy headphones that had loud but wooly bass. It didn't suit the classical music I listen to, so they went to my daughter after one use. (I never saw her using them much so I conclude they were a waste of money).

On the basis that this is a classical music forum and the assumption that you are most interested in classical music, I would try the Sennheisers first. I have heard none of the headphones.

Enjoy trying them!
