Closed back allrounder Momentum? Moda M100? AKG K550?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey,

 

I'm looking for a closed back over ear pair of headphones which i'll primarily use for movies/gaming (so i think i'll need strong base with a big soundscape?) but will also use for music which have good isolation. (used in a busy environment)

 

So far i've tried a few noise cancelling pairs including PSB MVU2 and the Bose QC 15.(father wanted a pair of noise cancelling) I liked the sound of the PSB but they're to uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour. (i've got a big head)

 

I've mentioned the Momentum, Moda and AKG as a few pairs i've looked into but i'm open to other suggestions i've just read good reviews on those. 

 

Thanks for any advice you can offer!

I am not experienced with noise cancelling headphones but I do have the K550s and I did notice that they do cut out a lot of background noise compared with my open back pair. From what I have read, some people think the K550s are not that strong in the bass but I think they are quite powerful. When I have been watching films, the explosions and other sounds, the impact of the bass is just incredible for what I am used to. That should be very good for gaming. I just don't know anything about the other headphones that you are asking about. Considering the K550s are closed back, their soundstage is very good. Right from the crystal clear and bright treble all the way down to the deep, powerfull bass, the K550s really do have such a good soundstage considering they are closed back.

Their main good point is how good their soundstage is. They won't be the best noise cancelling pair you can get.

 

Hope this helps a little.
