I would like to get some new headphones. I am a software developer and when I am at work, I listen to music (160 kbit OGG) using my iPhone 3GS. When I am at home, I listen to music (320 kbit OGG) using the built-in soundcard and 3.5mm output on my Macbook Pro. I would like to use the same headphones at work and at home, and because of this, I think I require some 'enclosed' circumaural headphones (that do not leak sound) so I do not disturb anyone when I am at work.
I listen to a lot of indie, instrumental (orchestral, solo piano), jazz and a bit of light rock, and when at home, I also do a bit of gaming and watch films on my computer. WIth that said, listening to music is what I will be doing most and so want to tailor the headphone choice for that.
I live in the UK and my budget is £50 - £150 ($75 - $230), depending on what you recommend. I don't need the headphones to be fully portable (to take on the bus, train, etc) and am happy to buy a portable amp if the headphones will require one.
I've been looking at a few headphones like the AKG K 240 MK II, Sennheiser HD 448 and Audio Technica ATH-M50. I can currently get a pair of HD 448's for $95, which sounds like a good deal.
What do you think?
