Hi. I listen to music all day, I'm shopping for a new pare of headphones. I just decided I didn't want the amperior headphones because they were too uncomfortable. I just decided the AKG K240 doesn't isolate well enough.
Comfort and isolation is paramount because I listen to music all day. I'm looking for closed headphones
Build quality - As long as it doesn't break if I accidentally sit on it I'll be fine.
My drivers - iPod Classic 160 gig (my main unit of music playing), iPod Touch, iPhone 3g. I want something with a good sound stage and accuracy, I want it to handle everything I throw at it too.
Isolation - not a big concern, because these will be for around the house, and maybe a little on the go use.
My sound signature (this is where I'm just guessing what I want) - I want a good sound stage and smoothness and can handle anything I throw at it that doesn't sound muddy or congested. Here's my last fm http://www.last.fm/user/metaldiscussor. You can see I have over 800 artists I listen to, including shoegaze, post rock, and post punk, but mostly metal.
