first time poster here
recently started to study piano again, and I chose an acustic piano Yamaha B1 with Yamaha Silent System, meaning I can plug a headphone and the sound comes from a digitalization of piano music. So even if the piano itself is off tune, the sound I will listen in the headphone will always be ok.
Now I have to choose the headphones, and I am completely ignorant on the subject. I think I'll prefer closed rather than open. I had an instictive love for AKG, but tried Sennheiser on and they felt incredibly confortable.
So, first requirement: closed (even though I am not yet completely sure as people say closed sound worse than open ones)
Then I thought that having a detachable replacable cable is a very good option.
Then, why not having them foldable? it would be great, but realistically I never listen to music on the go, and when I get on a plane I have earbuds, and wonder how often I will carry the new bigger headphones....
so my choice at the moment focused on these models:
SENN HD 380 pro, which fits all the 3 criteria.
AKG K 271: I can find the STUDIO model, which I read it has been discontinued, more easily than the MKII. And to be honest I am not sure about the difference between the Studio and MKII
Then today I discovered Shure SRH840 and 440 as well...
Or Sennheiser 439 (not collapsible) and AKG 240 MKII in case I chose the not closed...
As you guys see I am still pretty confused....
which one do you think are the requirements I should really focus on? I listen to classic/camera/opera/jazz music only but do not have good stereo, and sometime use the ipod. I have never listened music with headphones before, besides sometime radio streaming on the pc, or on a plane with Ipod. This just to give you a real picture of how I will use the headphone. Which are mainly for studying piano
thanks really a lot in advance!
