I'm considering buying a new pair of headphones. My girlfriend, being a sweetheart, bought me a pair of those Bose noise cancelling headphones a while back. They were the best pair I've owned to be sure (albeit not that great imo). However, they were stolen about two months after. That being said, I am wondering if there are any suggestions for a new pair. Specific models would be helpful.
I'm looking for good isolation. I live in Chicago so a closed pair is a must or trains and horns ruin everything. I'll be using them primarily for music. Rock mostly, but I listen to other genres as well (jazz, r&b, etc). Since these will be my first pair, I'm setting the price around $300. I'm not a basshead so no crazy bass. If the midrange is a little strong, that's probably ok. I think I like it a little stronger than most anyway. Comfort is a must. I'll probably being wearing them hours at a time. Nothing super delicate. I'm generally pretty careful, but just in case...
Any suggestions will be much appreciated!
