This is my first post here so please bear with me if I appear noobish.
I have just broken my last pair of Sony MDR-XB700 headphones, which I have enjoyed somewhat for the past few years and have given me lengthy sessions of joy. I though it would be about time that I maybe went to the next level of quality sounding headphones and headphones is an audio item I know nothing about and up until now have only gone by shop pricing being my level of choice.
There appears to be many names I have never even heard of on here that shows my noobness and are obviously of better quality than that which I have had before looking at reviews etc. So if I tell you my requirements, I am hoping someone can help me narrow down my search, bearing in mind that i don't have any high street specialists near me to try them out, I am going to have to order online and hope for the best.
Basically they are used everyday for at least 10 hours on both train journeys and in office so they need to not have the usyal crappy sound that sounds louder outside of the headphones than what they do to listener ( like those apple earbud ones you get with the phones! ). They must not be in your ear type as I can never find any comfort in those and have tried so many, they just don't suit me, and I really don't care what they look like or how big they are, as they will be either on my head or in a very big bag I use for work. I love listening to all genre of music depending on what mood I'm in, from Classical to Blues, Rock to club anthems and a lot of D&B and heavy bass podcasts etc so emphasis on the bass is a must but I don't want it to make the rest of the sound bad quality. Budget is up to £300 although I am happy to spend less now that I can move away from the high street store prices and get more professional guidance from the users here.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
