What headphones should I get?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Let's see how well you know your headphones!

 

Specifications:

  • Active noise cancellation
  • Durable
  • No external modules needed
  • Good looking
  • No microphone (at least not externally - no pilot-esque microphones please)

 

 

I'll be using them for long flights, studying, and for listening to undemanding music. I want top of the line - don't worry about the price.

A push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. <3 Thank you!

i would say that bose headphones are pretty decent looking, their active noise cancellation on the quiet comfort 3 headphone is among the best out there from what i read. that retails for $350

on side note: beats studio noise cancelling is so bad its worse than some good valour or pleather pads, it gives a real headache too o_o"

Agreed....I tried a pair and they weren't canceling much noise at all.

i think its probably more like one of the those bass boosters like those skullcrushers instead of an actual noise cancellation feature, just a guess though

If you're looking for top of the line quality, I'd suggest avoiding active noise cancellation.

 

Because you can get better sound from good closed headphones, and those that

isolate well cut out nearly as much ambient sound as those with active noise cancellation.
