Over ear headphone reccomendations?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for something similar in size to the Bose OE2. Preferably black.

 

I liked how the OE2's sounded and how they weren't very large. They felt as portable as ear buds for me.

 

My budget is $100 or just a bit over ($110 max)

 

Thanks for any input in advance

 

 

Also, what your thoughts on the Bose brand? Are the OE2's worth their price at $85?

Should I just save the money and buy the V-moda M-80s?

Hey! What's the most important features for you? I know that you said size, but this will dramatically limit your possibilities. Are you flexible with this?

Hey,

 

Yeah, I'm mainly concerned with how it's appearance and sound quality. I would like them to be light weight since I will be traveling with them (walking/bus). I listed to mainly rock and some metal.

 

I've been looking at V-moda's M-80s and really like their build. Price is kind of steep for me though.

 

As of now I'm using Klispch S4's and I love them.

Well, I presume if you want headphones for travelling, the M-80's aren't going to cut it when it comes to isolation, if that is what is important to you of course, but I sure as hell find it VERY important, because when you are sitting on the bus/train and the noise interferes with your music it does not matter how good the sound is. I would personally suggest the Sennheiser HD 25, which has very good isolation and awesome sound too.

That would be important. Thanks, I'll check them out.
