Yeah, a mate of mine has the HD 25s too, but they cost about €180.|
I recently purchased these for €59.99, the Sony MDR ZX-600. (I've them in black with a grey cable, much nicer!). After a few weeks of using them I've found:
- Can wear them for hours at a time (they're supra aural) and they stay pretty comfortable (they get warm but that's been a very good thing over the last few weeks!)
- They passively isolate noise pretty well, also they leak very little.
- Flat cable, doesn't tangle much.
- Really easy for a portable device to drive, and they're fairly neutral sounding (which I'm a big fan of). They respond to EQ'ing pretty well.
I haven't actually tried them out on games or music at home, as that's all through the hifi on a set of Senny HD 558s, but I love them so far, probably my fave set of 'out and abouts'.

I found with user reviews to only look for repeating, genuine criticisms. I literally read thousands of them when I was trying to pick out a new set of home headphones, and people flip out and give poor ratings over the most idiotic things (I never failed to 'lol' at folk complaining that the open back headphones they just spent a mint on leaked sound!)
