Bright over the ear

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I am looking for a close over the ear headphone that is bright with its sound.

I liked the sound of the bose qc15 don't need noise cancelling but I did like the sound will I find the same quality with the akg acoustic of the ear headphone? Or would I be better off going with an iem

Heya,

 

Bright?

 

Look to an Ultrasone or Beyer maybe (PRO750, DT770).

 

Very best,

You want bright? Grado SR225i. You want brighter? SR325i. You want portable? HD-25-1-ii

Bright, full-size, closed - Beyerdynamic T70.

But the QC15 aren't bright - are you sure you know what you're asking for? redface.gif

I had the ultrasone pro 750 for around 6 months and can confirm its brightness. It is a great headphone, but comfort became an issue for me during ultra-long gaming sessions (not the headphones' fault, it was my ears disliking the feeling of closed back)

QC15 are relatively balanced with boosted (but not overly boomy) bass and slightly rolled down treble, mated to a decent soundstage. I can't think of a good analog that lacks ANC - that includes the other Bose headphones. You might try the Denon AH-D2000 or Kenwood KH-K1000 as examples of non-ANC variations on the QC15, but they won't sound exactly the same for a variety of reasons. Something like the T70 or Grado headphones are fairly polar opposites to the QC15's dark/smooth/romantic sound.

The Pro 750 have a bright and balanced sound signature. No comfort issues here, it depends on your head size/shape.
