I've never owned a pair of " over ear " headphones. always on ear but mostly In ear as of late. Going to be ordering some things from MonoPrice an a headphone purchase is presenting itself. So my question to all of you is, Will I majorly regret moving away from IEM 's to over ear? I am curious about Monoprice's 8321 " button " style iems's an the 8323 dj style ones. Most of my listening is done at home, sometimes while out grocery shopping or meandering. Connected to my computer, or my Moto Photon phone. poweramp is such a great tool :) As far as apples an oranges go, considering the budget angle here. How big of difference in presentation should I expect coming from iem to over ear?
It varies on your preferences.
For myself, choosing an over-ear headphone or an IEM for when I go out ends up depending on what I feel like listening to when I wake up in the morning before I head to work. It ends up mostly being the convenience/portability factor of carrying a pair of IEM's vs a pair of headphones especially if I'm going somewhere else after work.
