Headphones for father with hearing loss, emphasis on comfort?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Long time lurker, have bought several sets of headphones based on posts here, so thank you!

 

I'm looking to buy my dad a set of headphones for christmas. He has age-related hearing loss, so I'm guessing cans with emphasized highs/mids will be better. Comfort is also very important, he'll most likely be using these for extended periods of time while lying down. They'll be used with an iPad more than anything else. Budget is < $100.

 

Thanks in advance!

Once again I’ll mention that headphone comfort is a very individual thing.  Sizing and sensitivities are unique to each person.  We can point you to headphones that are generally considered to be comfortable and mention others that have garnered complaints for being uncomfortable.  However, the only way to know for sure is to wear them yourself (in this case have your dad wear them) for a time equivalent to your longest listening session.

 

Given his hearing issues--and the fact that none of us is qualified to give advice about that matter--it would be best to take him shopping and try some on for size, comfort and sound.
