I'm trying to find some portable (or at least semi-portable) headphones. But I have a situation that's kinda tricky for me to find some good cans.
I find in-ear and on-ear headphones extremely uncomfortable, so I need a pair of over-ear headphones. But I need to be able to carry them around in a bag and listen to them in a work environment of absolute silence without any sound leaking at all. This is typically something that can only be done with in-ear, but I need to be able to listen to a 21 gun salute without my neighbors being able to discern a single gunshot, if possible.
I've tried a borrowed pair Bose QC15's, and they do a decent job at this. Only at very loud volumes could my music be heard at all. But I'm looking to get a little more bang for my buck potentially. I'm looking to keep it under $300, but I'm willing to stretch a little on that if it's worth it. I listen to a wide range of music: rock, electronic, pop, hip-hop, the occasional metal. Strong bass is important, but not a deal breaker. I would prefer not to, but I can get a portable amp if I need to.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
