    Preferably in ear but if it's small (as small as skullcandy lowriders or similar) then overear as well.
    But the real decider... if the thickness of the cable

    I really should have mentioned my low budget (no more than £20)

    a nice one like this

    not the really thin and kinda generic cable like this

    All my headphones always break at the tip of the cable, by the 3.5mm jack :(

    Sony MDR EX-500LP very comfortable and good sound quality, bass a bit warm but awesome!

    Edit* there £15 over budget but there worth it

    Get JVC Gumy, at £5 you can break 4 of them and still stay within budget :D Sound quality wise, they are just as bad as the supplied iPod ones. Just use duct tape to reinforce the place where breaks usually happen.
