First off the current stash of Heaphones I have are as follows, *Pretty Mediocre Collection*
Apple Earpods (rarely used)
Beats Solo (never use em)
Beats Studio (make good ear muffs on long distance travelling)
Klipsch S3 (all day usage/daily drivers)
I'm debating on whether to buy the Bose AE2 or the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros. I've heard positive reviews on both the headphones, but I have yet to try them for myself as I couldn't find a demo piece.
I'm interested in the Bose as I tried the OE2s and they sounded phenomenal. I really like the Bose EQ Style as it capitalizes on the crisp base and acoustics (like guitars). Another reason for wanting the Bose, is their insane comfort level. The OE2s were so plush and light that I couldn't even feel like I was wearing them. The leather is very plus and nice.
As for the Custom One, I really like the Bass ports as I've seen from the numerous reviews, which lets me tweak the amount of bass. As I listen to mainly J-Pop, Rap, and Anime Soundtracks, I see this as an awesome feature for me. Comfort is said to be good the One Pros but I can't tell until I try them.
PS: These headphones will be used as my daily drivers.. Portability is appreciated but it'll mostly be used during Car Drives, Public Transit, Library.
I hope to get some good insight on both these cans!
