I have a 4th Generation iPod Touch and I'm looking to purchase a headphone the my iPod can handle without purchasing an headphone amp. I tried out out a few earphones (such as the Klipsch S4, Shure 215) a few weeks ago. Both iems and earbuds were very uncomfortable for ears. I decided that I want to use the portable headphones.
I wear glasses and I need portable headphones that a good in comfort as well in sound quality. I've been looking at portable headphones for under $200 that my iPod can power them easy without a headphone amp. I currently have the Sennheiser HD 558 and I use to only them to watch movies and play video games on my main system. The headphones that I've looking at are the Bose AE2i and Sennheiser PX 200-IIi. I read mixed reviews on the comfort level and bass levels on the PX 200-IIi and on the Bose AE2i there are more positve reviews on it. The types of music that I listen to is Christian rock and from Tenors (i.e Josh Gorban, Andrea Bocelli). If you have another recommendation, here are the requirements for the headphone:
1. Very good sound quality.
2. Build quality must be good for the price.
3. Must be very comfortable
4. Must have decent bass, but not too much bass.
