Hey everyone, I'm new to the world of headphones and am looking for some for ~$100. I plan to use them at my desktop. I'm using them for music, and gaming. I listen to a variety of rock and the gaming sound is second to the sound for music. I don't have a preference on open vs closed headphones. I tried out both Grado sr60i's and Sennheiser HD428's. I love how the Grados sound, but they get hot pretty fast.
The Grados weren't as uncomfortable as I have heard, but I am looking for something more comfortable/cooler. The pads on the Grados covered the driver, (they were S-cush I believe). Would an around ear phone be better for me? I have large ears and the HD428's bend the tops of my ears down, or sit on top of them.
Thanks for taking a look at my post.
