Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm struggling to choose a set from Bose qc 15, V-Moda M80, and B&W P5 based on some threads I read from this forum and cannot decide.
I mostly listen to pop music (I like Adele, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, etc.) and some podcasts on my phone, ipad or PC. I spend one hour on the subway daily and do not take flights frequently (maybe on average once every quarter)
I've tried Bose QC 15 and V-Moda M80 (on my iphone) for a short time each; I'm not audiophile, but these are my thoughts:
Bose QC15 is very light and feels very comfortable on my head. I feel I can wear them for long period of time without discomfort. The bass seems to be strong. There is a little pressure from the noise cancelling but not bothering me very much when the music plays. However I don't feel much emotion in the sound. I feel some natural noise of the voice (which I like) is filtered out somehow.
For V-Moda M80, the bass is not bad either, and singers' voice seems to be more "true" and more crispy than Bose.
I don't know much about headphones, so the above are just my feelings.
I'm including P5 just because they have been recommended by others for iphone users and they look good to me.
Could somebody give me some advice? Thanks!!! I'll not consider other headphones, just not to confuse myself any further.
By the way, price is not a factor for these three.
