Advice on Closed Circumaurals/Headphones-for-people-who-work-in-offices-and-wear-glasses?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

The last thread about closed circumaurals was 6 years old, so I'm wondering if there are some more suggestions out there.

 

Purpose: I work in an office and I wear glasses. My current Denon D1000's pinch against the frame of my glasses which make them pretty uncomfortable after awhile, and sometimes I just don't feel like wearing my IEMs.

 

Objective: Looking for closed circumaurals, which I've noticed are the biggest, cushiest phones around. Unless you guys have a better idea (not IEMs).

 

Budget: <$250

 

Notes: I have a Fiio E5 amp, and I'll mostly be driving this with my laptop. On any given day, I'm listening to classical music, electronic, hip-hop, Korean pop, and/or Rodrigo y Gabriela (not sure how to pigeonhole them....)

 

Thanks!

You could try AKG K271s..they should be driven relatively well by the E5 and with the velour pads I've listened to these for 5+ hours at a time rather comfortably. I dont see glasses being an issue with these cans either.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80-Ohm.

Fischer FA-003/Brainwavz HM5 for comfort even with thick plastic-framed glasses.
