Done with Sony MDR-1R's. Looking for another headphone.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I got some Sony MDR-1R's late November and started to have an issue where the cable connects started to rattle. In another forum I saw a fix for this issue but for the price ... I refused to "fix it myself".

 

It has been over 30 days but Amazon agreed to give me a refund.

 

So here I am .. Looking for another recommendation. 

 

These headphones are to use at work and I don't want noise canceling. Had the bose QC-15's and I didn't like how they made me feel after wearing them all day. 

 

I would also like to have iPhone controls and mic.

Straight cable .. not coiled.

 

Thanks in advance.

I mostly listen to AudioBooks , Jazz .. Classical.

 

My price range would be under 250.00

 

I had my eye on the AKG Q460's but I kind of have a big head and the reviews say they may be a little tight.

I recommend the AKG K545.  Go here and read info/comparisons.  Also ask questions since the thread is very active:
