For anyone (like me) who hates reading 'waffle' the important bits are in bold... The rest of it explains the 'whys, whats, where, whens'
I currently have a pair of sennheiser HD205 headphones that i think are great, but, they are uncomfortable for long journeys, leak quite a lot of sound, and dont keep them much sound out so you hear a lot of background noise.
So i am looking for a new pair of headphones, i listen to varied music mostly, not just one kind. I do look for clear and sharp sounds from headphones and like everything to be as good as it can from it.
In this search for good headphones i naturally turned to who i have currently, sennheiser. I have found a few higher range pairs that look good, havent tried them out yet. I also by chance in a shop stumbled across Dr dre headphones, the 'studio' model. For me the plus side is they have noise cancelling built in, but at over twice the price of the sennheisers, are they really worth it?
I would appreciate feedback from people on what dr dre headphones are like (models from past 1 or 2 years) and what they sound like, if they last well. Equally anyone owning a high end pair of sennheisers, i would love to know what model and what you think of them.
Dont worry about giving prices you paid for it, i assume you are mostly american so i will get prices in the wrong currency, and unfortunately everything seems to be cheaper in the USA than UK :/ (well unfortunately for me at least..)
Thanks for your help.
just a quick note the title has 'best', i put the ' ' round it because obviously its subjective. But there should be headphones that are worse and better than others for different reasons.
