Check out some Beyer Dynamic DT100's on ebay. They're industry standard for studio monitoring

I'm fine with the cheapo Vic Firth phones, but I know some people hate them.

When I need a little more definition I'll put in-ears inside over-ear cans. Not only does it keep out more sound but it will give you great definition. Any offerings by Westone, Shure, or Etymotic have suited my needs.

I don't know what your money translates into USD, but Sennheiser 280 phones would probably work well. I have a pair and they sound very nice with very good outside noise isolation. Here in the states they're about $100.

This works well- ear buds in with muffs over.

Not sure if i was clear enough in my first post, I'm not really too bothered about the noise cancelling, mainly looking for sound quality :)

Bigger transducers usually mean better sonic quality. They're able to more more air more efficiently than the buds do. The better over the ear phones are also a bit less expensive than the better in ears and from my experience, they hold up better through the rigors studio sessions and gigging. Sometimes In-ears are basically the only way to go, but if there is a choice, I'll go with over the ear when ever possible.
