that is a "Can O Worms " ,

Sooooooooo many opinions on that subject .

I have some Sennheiser ,CX300's that are pretty good , but the CX 500's are out now , a little more money , but interesting.

For £100 you should be able to get superb sound.

For big (home) phones get the best Grado SR in your budget. (I have SR125, fantastic clear highs and lows).

For little in-ear phones look at the Shure SE series, or see if you can find Shure E4 or E4c (not E4G, for gamers).

Unfortunately you folks in the UK get ripped off on electronics prices. If you have a friend visiting the US, you can get much better value, especially with the weak dollar now.

Agreed on the quality of the SR125, but hard to drive with the typical MD unit weedy amp.

The Ultimate Ears offerings are very good if you have a thick wallet. If not, there is always the trusty Koss Portapros or Senn PX-100's...

Grado SR80's for home use, even portable MD players can drive them pretty well, to my ears at least. For portable use, either Sennheiser CX300 or PX200 do the job for me.
