First ever non cheapo cans was a pair of Sennheiser HD 201's. Loved the sound quality vs. cheapos, but they hurt my ears. I extended the pads away from the base, and I guess I have large ears, as the circumference seemed to be too small and caused ear pain after about 20-30 minutes.
So now I am nervous about ordering headphones sight un seen.
There is no place around me to try on some of the better bang for buck sets; just Best Buy, which has Beats, Bose, Logitech, etc…
I went to BB, and the Bose AE2 fit great, no ear pain, etc… The store was insanely loud, and I’m sure that those things are hooked up to amps, etc… So I did not get a feel for their performance.
My question is: Is there a better set of cans (around the ear) out there that are as comfortable as the Bose? Ones that accommodate bigger ears I guess? I don’t necessarily have big ears, so maybe it’s the shape or something? I do have a larger than average hat size.
Thanks in advance fellas.
Also, I prefer my music loud to the point my ears bleed; it’s not a deal killer, but I’m assuming these will not do that?
