I've killed most of a day reading through the forums trying to pick out a pair of new cans. I'm looking for something around 100 dollars, but can stretch to about 130.
I'm planning to use these in an office setting so I'd like...
1. Comfort - I plan on wearing these for many hours each day, and I have glasses. I work in a cubicle setting doing a lot of reading and coding.
2. closed back ( very little leakage, isolation is nice but I don't need to be completely shut off from the world)
3. I'll be listening mostly through my macbook air, using spotify. I like a lot of different things, but at work I tend to listen to electronica or mellow music, usually without much word.
I may be willing to add a cheap amp at some point, but probably not immediately.
So far I'm thinking something like...
AKG K271 mII - 125
ATH700x - 130
HD280 pro - 100
I should also mention I have a pair of D2000 I really enjoy, great sound and very comfortable. I don't necessarily need a similar sound signature and it might be fun to have something a bit different.
I've dug through a lot of similar threads, but many of them are a few years old so I'm wondering if these are good picks or if I'm missing anything.
