Tried making my own thread, but to no avail. So I'll try in here.
Hi guys. I'm looking for a new pair of headphones with good noise cancellation, and preferably not over the ear ones. I'm mainly going to be using them to play at video game tournaments and to actually travel to said tournaments, so I need ones that will block out the sound of people possibly screaming right next to me so that I can focus with just my music on to pump me up. I also don't want something to clunky or uncomfortable ( Tried the Sennheiser HD280 and they were much to big). I also need it to isolate the sound to so that I don't bother the person next to me on road trips or flights as I do listen to my music pretty damn loud. Right now all I have is my Klipsh IEMs that have done me much justice for working out, but I need something with a little more of a punch for my situation.
I listen to a wide variety of music, but my library is mostly dominated by hardcore-ish music. I do listen to the occasional jazz or rap though to calm the nerves. As of right now I'll be playing them off of my iphone, but I do plan on getting a new HTC EVO when the new one comes out so if that needs to be taken into consideration, there you go.
I don't care to much about the stylish aspect, but like I said I don't want anything to clunky as I do tend to wear them around my neck at times and its a pain in the ass if they're to big.
Also, I work at Best Buy. As you can imagine I get a sick discount on their inventory. So if you think of something that they have on their website that you think would be good for me, that'd be awesome. But it's not required, I'm willing to dish out more. Just no used headphones, I don't trust electronics used. Speaking of dishing out, my budget is around $150. Like I said though, if you can find it on the Best Buy website it would probably be significantly cheaper than expected.
Oh and one last thing, no curly cords. That's one thing I really ahted about the HD280s, the curly cord was the death of me.
Sorry for the wall of text. Just want to make sure you guys know what I want. :]
