On ear, open cans for the snow???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey guys!

 

So the snow season is coming up in aus/nz and I want to do away with my earbuds. as much as i like my brainwavz r1's as my beaters they have way too much isolation for the snow for me..

 

So I'm looking for some open phones probably on ear and preferably fairly minimal/slim (else id just take my dt990s =p)..

cheap would be good as I doubt open phones will survive more than a season, i don't crash much but when i do its usually hard.

I guess waterproof would be good but not a necessity as id say breaking is more likely..

 

so far I'm thinking porta pros, maybe something like the senn px 30 but they look a little sub par haha.. i like they beyer dtx 300 p byt they aren't open..

 

anyway, suggestions??

I really like my ksc 75 for what they deliver. Sound very good with aggressive rock/ metal and EDM.

 

They seem to be fairly durable as well. I use the for jogging/etc.

When adjusted they sit very, very securely, trust me on that. You can bend the brackets that go round the ear to the shape you like.

 

*edit* Now that I think of it the ksc75 aren't the most aerodynamic headphones, so it will be noisy with the wind. The sennheiser px300 should be more aerodynamic and better for cycling. I remember a fellow head-fier saying that. Just saying.

I meant px100

He's right that KSC75 offers no isolation. That's why I sometimes use PX200 at work.

I must have missed something. Is this for skiing or only to wear outdoors in bad weather?

Skiing. He don't want too much isolation.
