How do, my names EMdaftRAVE, i like daft punk, in case you couldn't tell :P Gonna get straight to it.
I like a lot of different types of music, mainly Rock, metal, electronica, will listen to anything though if its good.
Was wondering what headphones one might buy, in the sub-£50 area. Used to have some IEM's... CX500's. Lost them though and i'm going on holiday in 4 weeks and wanted some good, comfortable, noise cancelling on ears for the flight, drown out the crying babies and all that :P also heard you need to break them in so i wanted to get them early. Don't really know much about audio, i just know that i like it to be clear. I've heard around these parts that skullcandy aren't looked upon too lightly, and after hearing a couple of my mate's Hesh's i can see why. Or hear why :)
So, to recap:
Need some good on-ears that:
- Are obviously comfortable
- Clear sound
- Suited to rock, metal and electronica
- Noise cancelling - Sorry, just read up that noise cancelling headphones need batteries in them, i meant ones that block out sound on their own effectively :)
Saw some Sennheiser HD448's on sale at amazon for just over £50, was thinking those, any opinions? If they're not very good or theres some better ones for the price i'm always open to suggestions that people have :)
Quick edit: And i heard you can get amps for headphones? What would the perks of getting one of these be? And would it be worth getting one for my needs?
