Mid price headphone recommendations for mixing

Can anyone recommend decent mid price headphones for mixing? I dont have rhe space or cash for speakers. Am looking at a budget of approx £100.. From my research Shure SRH 440's look good. Has anyone tried them?

They sound good, but I REALLY hate coiled cables for phones so I went with the KRK KNS-6400s. :-)

These are about £30 under rrp and have a lot of fans.
I have the M30's and I'd definitely upgrade to these if I didn't have so much other stuff to buy first.

I have that exact model. The coiled cord could be an issue if your jack is a ways a way from your head. For me, it's not so I don't mind it. They are also comfortable on my sensitive head skin. I felt like I was in a vise when I tried on Sennheisers.

Now, this wasn't an issue until someone else pointed it out to me, but they do kind of creak and make noise when you move around. This might bug the crap out of some people, but all you have to do is sit p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y still ... :-)

The SRH440’s are the meat! Here’s how I decided on them about a year ago. Jeffery Green is a Sales Rep at Sweetwater Music and he gives advice like this all day long as a professional in the business: https://www.propellerheads.se/forum/showthread.php?p=856127&highlight=Shure#post856127 .

Phenomenal price, they sound great, and they're quite comfortable.

A little out of your price range, but the beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250-ohm reference headphones are the most comfortable and durable I have ever used. I finally had to retire my set after 16 years in the studio. Around $200 USD. I couldn't afford to replace them with the same, so I instead got a set of Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. While not as comfortable as the DT 770, they are nearly as accurate and, at 64 ohms, much more efficient (read: louder). They sell for around $100 USD. Each has 5 Hz to 25 kHz response.
