I'm looking for a new pair of headphones. I toe the line between audiophile and being aesthetically biased. I looking for something that sounds good (warm sound, something that sounds good with classical music, with a full healthy tone for the lows, with a soft whistle of highs ). I prefer with closed back, mostly so that the others around me can't hear my music (noise cancellation coming in isn't a big deal to me though). Also something that is aesthetically pleasing. I also prefer over the ear, but on ear is ok as well because of my small ears.
I've been looking into wooden headphones. Some people are raving about how the sound is better because the material works with the music like any wooden instrument would made out of the same type of reverberating material. Is this a bunch of bull? Has anyone listened to music through wood material headphones?
Here are a few links to different ones I'm looking at
So, has anyone heard anything about these? Do any of them work as well as "legend" says they do? Comfort as well as clarity?
This may be a lot of info to take in, but are they worth it? Has anyone been able to compare any of these to some other high quality headphones like a Sennheiser or something? Do they stack up? I've listened to a lot of over the ear styles, but I've never experienced the kind of sound a wooden material might create.
I'm trying to keep the price under $300. $500 at the most
Thank you so much!
