I would like other recommendations please. I'm only looking at closed back headphones with a near enough flat response for the best price possible. I'm very confused are you saying that the M40X is good?

I don't have Amazon prime. Some prices are weird here in the UK so I'll go for the M40X if it would perform better for my uses compared to the HD 280 Pro. What pads would you recommend to replace the stock ones on the M40X's?

Thanks. What is the hybrid made of? Also, which do you think would be the most comfy whilst being the most breathable? I'm thinking of going with the HM5's though. Would I need to replace the pads on them?

The Brainwavz HM5 are the model available in the UK. They look quite tempting. Costs a bit more than the M40X but overall cheaper since I probably won't have to replace the ear pads. Are they better/similar to the M40X's? I look at a website called rtings.com and did a comparison. The HM5's seem marginally better which seems good. I just want to make sure they last a decent amount of time.

I see I'll take that into account. Nice thanks for the help!

I've also seen around that the CB-1's have terrible build quality. Many people had permanent scratches from a little fingernail hit and a loud creak when putting them on. Many recommend a refurbished pair of M40X's on Amazon instead. Opinions?
