I have a specific need for headphones, and would like to ask your personal opinions about the best headphone for my purpose:
I have big ears too, I have come to accept this. That being said, I think headphones that don't put pressure on the rims of my ears would be the best. On ear headphones tend to bother me quicker than most.
I listen to the majority of my music in the library. I usually study in a quiet area of the library, and for many many hours a day. So I need headphones that aren't going to leak a lot of noise. Additionally, I need a headphone that I can leave on for a long time. The benefit of a headphone that could also block some ambient noise could be a plus too.
I listen to all types of music: Dominantly Rock, but also instrumentals, Classical, Rap. That being said, I will still listen to all other types of music too.
I would prefer to play music out of my iphone/computer without the use of an amp, but I could be swayed to get one if the entire purchase could be under my budget
I want to spend around $300 for some headphones.
Please just tell me what you think about the matter, or what other information could help your decision. I have searched and searched and haven't found a good thread/post that speaks of my criteria.
