My speakers crapped out on me (left speaker to be exact), and I've been thinking about buying some phones for some time now so I guess this is a good opportunity as ever.
I am not an audio-phile by any stretch but when I'm buying something, I want to buy the best I possibly can, with my budget.
Currently I own a pair of Denon AH-D1001 that I use with my voodoo sound fixed Samsung Galaxy S, and I've tried to use them on my computer (where I have all my music - and what I'll use the new phones for), but they are closed and even though they are incredibly comfortable I find using closed headphones for long sessions (we're talking 6 hours +) to be unpleasant. I can't really explain it well but its like having earplugs in for a long time.
On the other hand, I have had problems with neighbours due to my stereo volume, so I dont want ALL of the sound to leak out. I'm also going to use them together with a microphone, so I guess I'm looking for half-closed phones?
My budget is 250 bucks, and since the phones will be used only at home (and within 3 meters of the computer), I don't mind using an amp.
Any takers? Less than 250 bucks, phones that dont cause the weird sensation of using closed phones for prolonged sessions, but closed enough so my neighbours wont scream at me, and that I can use them for VoIP.
Thanks in advance.
