I wonder if any of you have suggestions for a reasonably priced set of headphones that are comparable in comfort albeit perhaps a little worse in sound than the Senn HD600?
At work I've used first a Grado 60 which is now kaput and then some Sennheiser HD 438s. I don't expect my work phones to be as refined as what I listen to at home but I found both pairs to be uncomfortable for more than an hour. They press down on my ears (which are rather large), whereas the HD600 surround them comfortably and are thus easier to wear. I like both the refinement and the open sound of the HD600 but I'd rather not spend that kind of money for a pair to be used and left at work. Any suggestions for a pair that are comparably comfortable (will surround my ears rather than sit on them), modestly priced (say 100-150 bux) and that are not ultra "bassy" in character. Mostly listen to classical music and jazz.
Thanks for any ideas.
