post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I hope to do it right forum, I am writing because I have a suggestion to ask, that is, due to work and other services, I often make air travel quite long (10-12 hours) one thing that I always with me is my Galaxy S3 and the Google Nexus 7 and would like to listen to some music completely isolated from various external noisein-ear headphones do not satisfy me so let me take someclosed-ear headphones that go well with these two devices and do not require external amplifiers, I already discarded the various beats or bose or B & W etc etc I would like to spend a maximum of 70 to 90 listen mainly acid-jazz, deep house,progressive rock and classical Neapolitan.

between these models which would be the most suitable?

  • Marshall major
  • Akg k77
  • Klipsch image one
  • Sony mdr v55
  • Superlux hd662

 

Thank you very much

P.S. excuse my spelling mistakes but I don't speak english very well

I work for an airlines company and fly on a very frequent basis. Probably have taken 10-15 different headphones on flights out of curiosity in the past year or so. Despite some of the anti-hype Bose gets on the site, one thing that they have down to an art is the noise-canceling system.

 

No one does it better. I prefer the Bose on flights to CIEMs and every sub-thousand dollar portable headphone I've heard. If you have the budget, suffer once and pay for the QC15s, then enjoy them for a long time to come.

can u get the k551 within your budget? its isolation varies from head to head.. :P

 

klipsch has a newer REFERENCE ONE..better cables n with some splash of old gold.

Its an on-ear, v shaped sound signature...isolation is quite good, but not noise cancelling of cos.

Oh Thank you very much. In my list, I was wrong to include the K551, because they are out of my budget. The same is true for the Bose. I would like to spend around € 100. Of course accept advice also on other brands not only those in my list.

Thank you very much
