Hey Head-fi community,
Been always coming here fro awesome product reviews and never really got it signing up. Finally did so today and here's my first post!
I would like some advice from the experts here on what headphone is great to buy as an all-purpose headphone.
There are so many good heaphones out there for so many different purposes that it's is really tough for me to choose which headphone would be the best one for me.
I mainly use my headphones at home on my computer to watch movies, listen to music and game. I don't use a dedicated sound card nor an amp. I don't consider myself an audiophile but I do enjoy my music and I think I can make out whether headphones are good or not.
I listen to all kinds of music but electronic, dub step, classic rock and a little Hip Hop is what I mainly listen to.
The kind of headphone I like would be one that could serve me in all that I do, watch movies, listen to music and which is good for pc gaming.
I like an over-the-ear, closed set of cans that is not only built well but also looks good. Aesthetics is very important for me. I like big headphones that have comfortable ear pads so the headphones can be worn for extended periods of time. It would be awesome if the cable could be detached from the cans for storage and it doesn't employ proprietary connections on the end that connects to the headphone (Bose AE2's etc.). Ideal headphones would not be too light nor too heavy.
The headphones I like are the Sennheiser Momentum's, AKG K550's, Sony MDR-1R's.
I currently use the Bose AE2 which is pretty good at what it does but my wife recently started using them and is in love with them so I'm in the market for a good set of cans.
Wouldn't mind if the recommendations have noise-cancellation or bluetooth. Anything to make life easier but not at the cost of audio quality.
Please help me with your input!
