I'm looking for a pair of strong, tough, reliable headphones to use during travel. The imperative is that they are light, and can be stuffed into a backpack/bag easily, as I will be quite rough with them (especially when in a hurry).
I do not want an IEM, as 1; they don't fit in my ears very well, and 2; I find IEMS to be uncomfortable when moving about.
So I'm really focussing my search on Over Ears and On Ear headphones.
Foldable headphones would obviously be great, as they will be smaller and less likely to break/bend in my pack.
I don't really mind if there is no isolation, or if there is isolation. However slight isolation is preferred to none, as they will be used outdoors mostly.
As for sound quality:
I am not too fussed, as close to 'monitor' style as possible would be good. I listen to a wide variety of music, and don't really want a specific EQ.
I will primarily be using these cans with my phone/mp3 player, and not a computer or amp.
Do you guys have any ideas?
