I tried looking through the forums, but I couldn't find anything that addressed all the issues I have. I wouldn't call myself an audiophile; I don't really know any of the proper terms to describe what I'm looking for but I'll do my best. I currently have a pair of Bose headphones (an older model of these); the comfort and noise-isolation is superb, but the sound quality is not that great. I bought these Audio Technicas, which sound great, but they advertised them as "over-ear" and I interpreted that to be the same as "around-ear." They didn't cover my ears entirely, so lots of noise came through; I'm going to return them, but what should I get instead?
TL;DR, looking for:
- noise-isolating (the more, the better)
- around-ear (i.e. should rest on the sides of my head, not on my ears)
- somewhat portable
- comfortable for hours of use
- must really flesh out tones of rock/alt-rock music (my test song is currently Arlandria by Foo Fighters)
- max $200
Can anyone help me out?
