As someone who will be flying on an airplane a lot and going on long road trips, I know both cans are good at isolating sound.
I have found an AKG for 55 and an AT for 105 dollars( refurbished). As far as I know, they both offer at least decent sound quality especially the AT's with the noise cancelling turned on. Also, i've been told they are both uncomfortable for a big head, which I have. Any solution?
But what I don't know about is sturdiness and durability. Which has sturdier wire?. I tend to get my wires caught on chairs, knobs, etc and I want headphones with wires that can withstand some punishment, not 1mm thick pathetic plastic thing.
Is the AT worth the price jump? Also, which is more portable?
