Hi im looking for a headphone with budget maximum of 300. After a little reasearching decided to go with 3 headphones above.

All the headphones seems to have good reviews and resonable price for its quality so im not sure which one i should get.

I will use it pretty much everyday when i go to work on subway,car,trip, noisy street and also on bed before i go to sleep.

Please give me a good recommendation! Thanks

Both the AKG and Sennheiser headphones are not that great at blocking outside noise.  I have heard the QC15 and I really like them as a solution to noisy environments.  They are also quite comfortable.  I used them at PAX West as well and was very impressed at how the sealed away the outside noisy environment.

Thank you for the reply! Will listening to non noise cancelling headphones ruin my music outside? Other than Noise cancelling, does the bose have good quality sounds compare to akg,sennhesier? I really have alot of questions since im a noob.

I was not able to conduct a direct comparison, but I was very impressed by the sound coming from the QC15.

 

You could compare the following graphs and decide for yourself:

Sennheiser HD598

There is no doubt looking at the graphs that the HD598 measure much better.  It has a more flat frequency response and more defined square wave response at 300 Hz, but this is expected.  The QC15 is a headphone for those wanting good sound in noisy environments.  The HD598 has no isolation at all.

As said above they have very different uses. The Sennheiser's are pretty Much useless outdoors.
