Most comfortable closed back headphones for 6-8+ hours daily use

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

Im looking for a closed back full size headphone for daily use 6-8 hours

 

I use it mostly at the office so prefer a close back headphone, avoid disturbing others...And since for such long term listening I put comfort and light weight first. velour pad or fiber pad would be the better opinion. I don't really like leather ones, get too hot after a few hours. 

 

Price range is around $250 USD.

 

The Sony MDR MA900 seems a very comfortable full size headphone, and it's super light weight(190g). However, its full open back design may be a problem when listening in the office. too bad...

 

DT770 has good reviews but they weight 270g...I use to have a HD595 (270g) and get headache after 1-2 hours..so it may has the same problem

 

AKG K 701 is a light weight (230g) and velour pad comfortable headphone...also Im not sure about the sound leakage, would that be a lot? compare to the ma900

 

If momentum has replaceable velour pads (and bigger size of cause!! ) would be prefect ...but they don't!

 

I know I'm kinda picky...but it would be great to have your guys' opinions!!!

Yeah I was considering this one too. are the pads replaceable? So I can get velour pads from ebay/amazon to replace them...

I know those are (not real) leather so it may gets warm after 2 hours.

Beryerdynamic DT770 is very comfortable. Sennheisers are typically clampy-er than Beyerdynamics.

+1 for Sony MDR-1R

 

Otherwise I would also consider some Audio-Technia cans, as their comfort is top notch.

Yea I got myself the sony mdr1r, it's overall quite comfortable. However the headband hurts a little after a few hours, it weights about 240g...

 

Im thinking return these and try the momentum for a week to see which fits me better.

 

Just wondering if I can find any velour pads that replace momentum's earpad (same size, maybe sightly bigger)?

From what i know the velour pads are only available for the smaller on-ear model, not the over ear.

Yep! I'll stay with my Sony Mdr-1r, they are on sale at Canada Computer for $189, pretty good deal.

 

Now, which velour pad  is more comfortable for Sony Mdr1r, Beyerdynamic Velour Padded or Auray Deluxe Velour Earpads?
