Super comfy under $180 closed cans?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

 

I'm looking for a pair of over ear closed headphones. I currently have some Bose OE2i's, but I find that after wearing them for 45 minutes or so, they start hurting, so over ear is the way i'm going.

 

I have no amp, just my motherboard and my bose companion 5. 

 

I will be using it for general stuff like skype/movies/perhaps gaming here and there

 

I did some research and I came up with the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohms. I didnt pick the ATH-M50S because i'm more concerned about the comfort than I am about the sound quality.

 

I'm also a bit concerned about the ohms that my motherboard can support, will it break my computer?

 

Can I get some more recommendations? Thanks!

Id grab the MDR 1R. They're very comfortable.

Probably one of the most comfortable at the price indeed!

Cool, thanks for the recommendation. However, it's slightly too expensive for my range, and my budget is pretty tight. Can anyone answer my question about the amp, and some more choices?

Can the shure srh840 be run without amp/dac when using it with a ipod/personal media player?

Yes, it works fine (but it's even better with).

I personally find that (at least with my Hifimediy Sabre DAC and Fiio E11) there is VERY little improvement with the SRH840.  Maybe a better DAC and amp would give a more noticeable improvement.  The SRH840 sounds great out of every source I have used.  Regarding its comfort level, I find it to be very comfortable as long as the headband is not tight.

Beyer Cop. Comfort level is pretty good.

Can I get some lower range recommendations 100-180?

Most of the stuff you're giving me is around 220.
