Hello, I need recommendation for my next headphone!
Who am I?
Final year engineering student. I am aiming for a first class in my degree, and i need music to study efficiently. So, a geek like me need a headphone as below:
What is your budget?
Are you OK with open cans?
No, I really don't want to disturb the person next to me in the library..
What equipment will be powering these cans?
Macbook & My Samsung Omnia 7 (yes, it's a windows phone!)
What format of your music and other sounds will you be putting into these cans?
I listen to ANYTHING BUT orchestra, jazz and classics. I enjoy most of the top ten songs in billboard hot 100.
Do you plan to use them outside of your home?
Yes! Everywhere i go: grocery shopping, on the way to lecture, in town
Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?
I have Sennheiser hd212 Pro and Beats Solo and Studio. I am quite tired of a bassy and muddy headphones. I really want a headphone which can give me good clarity, but with a recognizable bass (but not too much bass like in Beats Studio)
To be honest, my favorite one so far is B&W P5, but its too outrageously expensive.
1. Over Ear & Very Comfortable & Portable(Most important!)
3. Good Design & Durable
4. No need for battery
Did my research, and so far I am inclined to Bose AE2 since it's the most comfortable one (from my research). I have not tried it though. But there are ALOT of people going against it.
Please help me for my headphone search, and need to ensure that this hard earned cash of mine is well spent. Thanks! :)
