I recently just got a new job and I'm looking for some advice for a new pair of over-ear noise cancelling headphones. I want to be able to tune out the co-workers and general office noise in the background while still getting very good audio quality when I want to listen to music (mostly dubstep, so the highs and lows are equally appreciated) or watch a customer's video.
I'm a -little- in the know when it comes to detecting good or bad quality headphones, as I majored in Broadcast Sound & Engineering for a few years, but that was a long time ago. My budget is $500 or less. I'm hoping to get a pair that doesn't require batteries (has a USB charger or something) but batteries for the noise cancellation will be alright if necessary.
Any suggestions or advice are extremely appreciated.
Not my thing, but this may be helpful:
