Hi guys, I currently having a dilemma.choosing portable headphones.
I'm from the Philippines btw and my country has a tropical climate. I currently have the Ath m50s for portable use, as you know it wouldn't take time for my ears to sweat considering the pads are pleather and it's really hot so around ears aren't really advisable here. I use my iphone 4s for source with no port amp.
factors to consider:
Comfort * I have a big head* AKG K518 tried it, stretched the band @ maximum, might even deform the headband. :(
Build quality (must survive tropical climate)
I'm just gonna order online and cannot try this cans. It would be either a hit or miss purchase.
I have narrowed my list with senns.
Pros: Best looking headphone available , Good sound, low impedance, outstanding build quality. Good SQ. Microphone controls for Iphone.
Cons: Leathers might break with tropical climate, small pads might not fit ears (making it on ear headphones LOL). Big heads don't fit well? Ears might sweat due to around ear design
Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
Pros: On ear headphones ( won't be sweaty as around ears) , good SQ, outstanding build quality, low profile design.
Cons: tight headband? (Big head here). No mic for Iphone. High Impedance. sound isolation = idk
I would gladly read your advice/advises. :)
