I have searched the forums and read through previous threads seeking large circumaural headphones, though didn't find too many suitable recommendations.
I need a pair of closed headphones for working in the library for extended periods of time. I have fairly large but also protruding ears, i find most circumaural headphones press on my ears and cause me discomfort. I need a comfortable pair that are truly 'over ear' with fairly large/deep cups.
I will also be mostly using them with a phone or a laptop (mac book) and no headphone amp, and so low impedance would be preferable, although I gather 64ohms would not be the end of the world, particularly as I will be mostly in a quiet environment.
Another plus would be a detachable cable, though this is not essential. My budget is £60-£70 (UK, around $100), though obviously am happy to pay lower.
I am currently considering ordering and trying out:
Sennheiser Hd 215 - cups appear to be big but not enormous
Lindy HF-100 (= Fischer Audio Fa-003 = Brainwavz HM5 = Jay Car Pro Monitor)
These appear a great size for me, however are 64ohm and are reportedly light on the the bass - i'm not a total bass head but do enjoy good bass and listen to a lot of electronic music.
1) Does anybody have any other recommendations?
2) Does anybody have any comments on the bass of the Lindy HF-100, or on using 64ohm headphones with a phone/laptop?
(I asked about the 64ohm thing in 'sound science', however the responses were helpful but weren't totally conclusive as to whether it's a bad idea or not)
