Good morning folks!
New person here :)
I'll cut right to the chase.
I am a college student and I need a really really good pair of noise isolating portable, comfortable headphones.
Basically, I am going to be wearing it for like 2 hours, then take it off for 30min, then put it on for 2 hours etc.
I need it to block out 1) conversations, 2) little miscellaneous noises (ex: pens clicking, feet shuffling, the door, etc)
My budget is right around $100.
I have looked at the following forum:
And I figured the Sennheiser HD280 and 380? was recommended by various people so I tried it out at my local Best Buy. The headphones, I found them to be very loose?big? and i could still hear muffled noises (ex: the T.v and the radio noises were still there). Its funny cause there was a portion of people that said that these headphones had a "vice grip" . . .I am not too sure if they are like that cause the comments refer to the new and the ones I was wearing were really old.
So . . . . .are there good noise isolating headphones for really small petite people? Bose is very expensive
I am considering the Shure 440 and the Beyerdynamic DT770 and the Sony MDR V6? . . .but I am not too sure about the fit or about their noise isolation capability.
Also, I wanted to ask you guys . . .since Black Friday is coming up, do you think that any of these headphones will be on sale? Should I wait till then? What would be your buying strategy? Is there any anticipated headphone sale for this upcoming Black Friday or do we truly have to wait till that day in order to find out?
Your help would be great!
