hey guys. im looking for headphones that i can listen to my music at a comfortable level while i drum. i have a pair of skullcandy ink'd and altec lansing backbeat titaniums, but i need something more. both of these phones do a good job at isolating, but not enough becuase i have to turn them too loud and i get fatigued and a headache after listening for a bit. the two cans i found that would work
vic firth s1h1
both claim to - ~15-20 db. im looking for cans that can do the same, so theyd have to be circumaural im guessing (closed back, over the ear) and be in the same price range. everyone that reviewed both above cans said they are decently comfy and do a great job at isolating, BUT THE SOUND QUALITY IS HORRIBLE. im hoping to find a can that can do its job, and be much comfier and much higher quality audio. i have about 50 or less (always better) to spend.
on altec lansing spec sheet they claim the backbeats -16db, but i dont know how correct it is, my ink'd sound like the isolate the same amount of sound. http://www.alteclansing.com/content/ebiz/alteclansing/resources/images/sellsheet/uhp_sellsheet.pdf
also, if anyone has an experience with iems and feel they would do a better job (must be better than my backbeats, which i think sound and isolate pretty well) for around 50 or less, please feel free to list...i think thats all
thanks a lot guys, many people here have been a great help
