Recommendation for Allrounded Noise-Cancelling Headphones

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I am looking for a noise cancelling headphone that is all rounded, I listen to old english songs and KPOP, which do not usually feature heavy bass, so i am looking for an allrounded one with good treble. Please help me out!! Thanks beforehand!

Hmm, personally I dislike active noise cancelling headphones, but maybe the Bose QuietComfort 15 would suit your needs, or you could just find a pair of headphones with a very good seal.

Have a look at the Sony MDR-1R and UE600 (noise cancelling version).

The Sony is more mid-centric and will have a clear polite presentation overall.

The UE6000 has a more V-shaped 'fun' sound.

 

The Bose QC15 is the comfiest, lightest and has the best noise cancelling of the three, but the sound quality could be better for the money and is beaten easily by the other two.

Havn't heard either of them.

Still havn't seen either in real life. I was even on a famous electronics street in London yesterday and didn't see them... but the standards there are dropping.

But I do know that neither of them are regularly (if ever) recommended on headfi.

AKG K480NC --- $190 on amazon right now. I've had the K840 and K490 and for some reason I keep going back to the 480's. Has a more natural sound signature, while the 490's tone seems off balance. AKG's in general are pretty well-rounded if you're looking for that (I just picked up a pair of K550's the otherday)

 

Whatever you do, don't go Bose (sound sucks for the money), unless you REALLY need noise cancelling, in which I'd rather recommend a pair of passive IEM's like etymotics or shures.

Never, not under any circumstances. Not even for free.
