I'm looking for a decent pair of office over-ear headphones which I use almost for the full 8 hours at work. I'm used to iems, but I worry about damaging my ears by using them for so long, and sometimes have to use desktops for which the cables won't reach all the way to the back of the boxes.
Basically I'd like the best sound quality I can get whilst still being isolating (for my workmates, not necessarily myself, the office is quiet and sometimes people call out to me) and having a decent length cable. Lately I'm listening to electronic and dance music at work (Jon Hopkins, Four Tet, John Talabot, Caribou, GusGus) but some rock (The Drones, Arctic Monkeys, The Cribs, The Smiths), but I listen to quite a few podcasts and some hip hop too. Good Mids and or tight, driving bass is what I'd like. Soundstage and seperation would be nice too though. I'm not fussy, so long as they don't sound muddy or compressed. I've come up with the following:
Creative Aurvana Live
My budget is around £35, but at a push I would go to £55 for the CAL - but only if it's really worth it. I'd prefer to get one of the others and use the money for a pair of clip on Koss' that I haven't yet tried, though not for work.
If anyone has any experience with these and can compare, or suggest some others under £35 then I'd appreciate the advice. Thanks!
