Looking for closed headphones (around $150) to compliment hd558.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So a few months ago I bought the Sennheiser HD558, and have enjoyed them ever since. However, because they are open, I am mainly limited to using them at home. What I'm looking for is a pair of closed circumaural headphones for use outdoors and while in public. I am looking for them to have a similar sound signature to the HD558. I'm not much of a bass head, though a little bit more than the HD558 offers is welcome. My price range is between $100-$200, though I want to stick to around $150. I'll probably be wearing these for long periods of time, so comfort is another important aspect. 

 

My music genre varies from rock and rap to electronic/House and classical. Portability is not a deal breaker, although being able to store them easily is always a plus. Another positive would be a removal cable, though again it is not a necessity. Also if it provides any help, I do not wear glasses.

 

Thanks for any help you are able to provide.

A bit difficult question. Are you looking for a portable set of headphones? since you're using them outdoors

Preferably, as I would put them in my backpack mostly. However, they do not have to be that portable. Something like folding earcups would do the trick perfectly. I'm willing to sacrifice some portability,as it is lower on the list of priorities compared to sound quality, comfort, and being circumaural.
