Hi, everyone. This is really the first time I have been looking for a solid pair of headphones to buy. I have been perusing the internet for a couple days looking for different headphones to get. So far my criteria for a pair are as follows:
-I will be using them for indoor listening only
-Preferably around $100, can be a little over or under
-Good for hard rock/metal, some of my favorite artists are Tool, Opeth, Deftones, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Streetlight Manifesto
-I don't really care if they are open ear or closed ear (I think that's what you call it, where the back either have a little speaker or not)
-Comfort is a big factor here, I spend a lot of time at my computer, usually upwards of 8 hours at a time. Also, I have glasses so I would want a pair that wouldn't be uncomfortable for people with glasses
Anyway, I have been looking at many pairs and so far I've found that most, if not all, have very mixed views. The first pair I had looked at were the Sennheiser HD555's, but then I came across people saying that Grado headphones had excellent audio quality so I checked out their SR80i's. Upon looking at Grado's headphones, people either love them or hate them, and people mod them a lot for more comfort, but I don't know if I would be interested in doing that. Other I've taken a look at are Shure SRH440's, but like I said, people often have mixed opinions.
