So I finally purchased my first set of headphones. I started with the SOL Republic HD's, then The Master Tracks, then the Denon AH-D340, before finally going with the Monster Inspiration's ANC. Sound wise I really like them. The highs are clear and bright, the mids could be a little more pronounced, and the bass is nice and tight without be to overbearing.
However, after more and more listening time, I found that they are not comfortable at all. After about an hour my ears start to kill me. They are no where near as comfortable as I need them to be.
Looks wise, I love them. I am wanting a set of headphones that are as nice to look at, as they sound.
I mainly listen to Indie Rock (Vampire Weekend, Airborne Toxic Event, Death Cab, Matt & Kim and Two Door Cinema Club) and Folk (Avett Bros, Mumford & Sons and The Decemberists). But I also listen to 90's Alt Rock, Acoustic, 80's, Classic Rock and especially Muse. I will only be listening to them on my mac and iphone.
Does anyone have any suggestions that could help me? I prefer to be able to test out and purchase locally so that if/when I exchange them it is a lot quicker and easier.
