These headphones will be used for watching DVDs (movies & series) as well as listening to music (flac). Genre: Rock/indie.
They are for my girlfriend and will be her first pair of high quality headphones. I want them to sound good unamplified but may be able to squeeze in an inexpensive portable amp if it will make a big difference. They should be open-air and over the ear. Comfort is huge, she should be able to wear them for hours without noticing them.
From the bit of research I did when searching for this topic I was able to narrow it down to the following 3 or 4:
Grado SR225i (although probably not a contender because I've read in a few places that they aren't the most comfortable)
AKG K702 (may require amp to sound good)
Any other suggestions are very welcome! Thanks =)
