I am looking for full size, circumaural headphones that have excellent comfort, isolation, and sound quality for podcasts and some gaming, all under $125.
I currently have a pair of ATH AD-700, which obviously has great sound quality and comfort, but doesn't block out any sound and makes podcasts sound a little flat when played through my iPhone. I do consider myself something of an audiophile, but but I don't listen to a lot of music, and I'm trying to make the best of the relatively low quality podcast files I usually listen to.
I also have a semi-large head, which is going to play into the comfort issue. A well padded band is key. I previously tried out the ATH-M50, which hurt the top of my head and sounded a little hollow.
Here are some of the headphones I've found that might fit the bill:
Logitech UE 6000-
Sony MDR 7506-
AKG K 240-
Sennheiser HD 429-
I've probably spent about 10 hours looking for these, so any help is really appreciated. Thanks!
