Hey again Head-Fiers,
I am looking for a portable on-ear or over-ear headphone that will be perfect for being on a train, being in a coffee shop, etc. Basically light commuting. So here are the factors that matter to me: portability, actually not complete isolation (I need to hear what's going on around me such as train announcements etc.), definitely no bleeding that will cause others to be annoyed, a little bit of style would be nice, and of course the best sound quality possible within the price range of the headphones listed below.
My sources are a 2009 13 inch mac book pro, a newer classic iPod, and an iPhone 4, and I do not want to have to bring a portable amp with me.
The types of music I listen to on a regular basis are jazz (mainly fusion), rock, classic ock, electronic (many different genres), ska, world, alternative, indie, etc. Basically everything, but definitely an emphasis on jazz genres and electronic genres.
Here are some of the options I have come up with after doing some research:
V-MODA Crossfade M-80
Sennheiser HD25-1 II
If anyone could let me know what they think about these different headphones, especially with the genres of music I listen to that would be great.
In addition, I will not be able to test any of these out, so I have to really be certain before I make a purchase.
Thanks in advance everyone!
