Headphone recommendations for larger than average ears?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey, i have been trying to find a good pair of headphones for a while now and the results havn't been great so far.

 I have tried;

- Sony MDR-1R, my right ear touched the driver, making them uncomfortable

- Sennheiser momentum on ear, my right ear was uncomfortable with these (probably ruling out any on ear headphones)

- Bose AE2, These were comfortable, but the build quality was lacking and reviews state that there is better headphones

- Sennheiser momentum, with these my right ear was squashed a little, however it did fit inside the earcup (so my ear isnt all that big)

- AKG K550, the comfort was ok, however i did not like the non-detachable cable and the sound seemed very far away, which i didnt like

 

- Turtle Beach M5, i currently own these and have had them for a while, i have no comfort issues (even though the pads are quite hard) however the sound isnt all that great.

 

Please can anyone recommend to me a good headphone for £100-200 that isnt ugly, will fit my ears and sound good? (im not an audiophile)

 

Thank you for any replies.

If you don't need isolation, go for open headphones.   These headphones usually are a lot more comfortable than closed cans.

 

Open Cans to Consider:

MDR MA900

DT880 250 Ohm

ATH AD900x

Fidelio X1

 

Here are some closed cans:

ATH A900x

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro

that's pretty much it

 

I don't think any closed cans are going to be comfortable for you until you get used to wearing headphones.  Most headphones used to be uncomfortable to me, but now they aren't since I've worn so many.
