I've been working from home for the past year or two, and I use my sennheiser hd650's pretty much everyday. Unfortunately for my ears, I am moving to working in a coworking / office environment and need to find some good closed ear cans and an amp setup for the new desk. I used to own some denon's (not sure which model, I feel like the price was around 250 or 300), but sold them when I went with the open ear hd650's. They were very comfortable but might have leaked noise too much?
- I listen to a wide range of music, and care more about overall balance of sound than bass etc (not a basshead basically).
- I will be wearing these a lot, so comfort is a big factor. They do not need to be portable, I will be leaving them at the desk when I leave.
- Sound leakage going out needs to be at a minimum, I'd assume sound leakage coming in kinda goes hand in hand here but I can always turn up the volume if anything is leaking in... I just don't want to disturb neighbors, otherwise I'd stick with my hd650's.
I am looking to spend 1500 or less, ideally around 1k to 1.2k for the cans and amp combo. So what's your dream setup for closed ear headphones!?
Fire from the hip here, I'll be doing a lot of research but am really looking for some recommendations from you all that know a lot more than me on where to start. Thanks!
