I listen to music all day and I really mean all day. Ever since I started college 4 years ago I simply can't go an hour with out needing to hear some tunes.
I just bought a whole crazy mac design work station, I run pretty much 80% of my music from my Mac Pro (not MacBook Pro) and sometimes my iPhone.
My girl got me a pair of Skull Candy Skull Crushers a year ago for my B-Day. Plugged them in turn the bass amplifier on and all I could remember was when I saved and bought 2
JBL Studio S310ii for my room and how i wish i could just tie them to my head LoL i never took them dam things off..... well about a month ago my Skull Candy Skull Crushers die, sound cut out of the left speaker, so I said I got some cash let me spend some more the get more. I spent hours online comparing, read/watching reviews etc... after about 2 days of research i went out to make my purchase. First pair I bought were a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 15, not bad liked the noise-cancelation, fit was ok but I was in love. Tried them out for 5 days but i don't know it just sounded to me a little off. Went back and returned them. 2nd I Bought Beat Solo by Dr.Dre, not bad, sound was nice and after adjusting the sound with Audio HiJack Pro it was pretty good. Then after wearing them for over 10 hours kind of half way forgetting their on and having my Mac Pro under my desk I kept getting up and having them yanked off my head, i saw they had a wireless edition, went back returned the Solo's. 3rd I bought Beat's Wireless by Dre and the sound was still good like the solo's and was really loving the bluetooth connection. I kept them for about 2 weeks, i kept messing with my Audio HiJack settings trying to get the perfect settings (granted I have no music background, so it was all trial and error till i got the right effects and filters). The only problem was that if their was no sound being streamed to the headphones a beep would sound when connection was down and beep when it connected again. And this isn't setup/pairing problem, it seemed to be the bluetooth connection but, still got great sound. Yet after wearing them for over 15 hours when you take them off since they are On-Ear Headphone the surge of pain through my ears as I took them off was driving me mad. Went and returned them just 3 days ago, cause seriously spending around $300 for headphones I should be able to get good sound and comfort. My 4th pair is Sennheiser RS 170, came home set them up hoping they would be just right... I found myself trying to get them to sound good, switching the output connection, midi settings and reading how I could make them sound better. And after all the review I read saying the sound is excellent and blah blah, I was confused, was I missing something. To me they have a "hollow sound" and when I adjust up the effects and equlizers they seem to peak and the sound craps all in my ears.... I am going nuts and now I don't know what to buy, I seriously don't want to do another round of returns. SOMEONE WITH REAL AUDIO KNOWLEDGE HELP ME!!!
What I am looking for is: Full-Size or Over the ear, Wireless or Bluetooth (if it doesn't lower the sound quality) that has a deep, loud bass (Like the SkullCrushers with the amplifier) and over all great sound quality.
I listen to a sort of wide range of Artists, Birdy Nam Nam, XXYXX, Moderat, Friendly Fires, Little Milton, J.S. Bach, Vivaldi etc...
And if it is the wireless/bluetooth that is giving me the poor sound quality, i'd rather forget that and buy a long headphone extension cord.
I really liked the sound of the Beats Wireless and that I can still connect it with a headphone jack and still listen while it charges but very, very uncomfortable.
The RS 170 wireless was awesome and crisp but sound just isnt their for me.
I was looking at maybe getting SkullCandy Mix Master's or Ultrasone 900 Pro (But a little bit out of my price range) or Denon D-2000.....
I really could use some suggestions anything,
