I am looking for a pair of comfortable closed headphones that I can wear in the office while working. Some days I will have them on all day, so I am thinking over ear is going to be the most comfortable for me. They will need to be closed/sealed, as I mainly listen to music to help me concentrate (I also don't want to distract others by leaking sound). Portability isn't massively important, but I guess it'd be a plus.
I have been lurking and reading lots of threads on here and I have been considering some of the following:
- NAD HP-500
- Sennheiser Momentum
- Focal Spirit Classic
- Sony MDR-1R
My ideal budget is sub £200 ($330), ideally around the £150 ($250) mark would be good. As you will know, most of the headphones I have listed are slightly out of this price range (save for the Sonys).
I listen through Spotify on my phone or through my work laptop, so no amp.
At work I mostly listen to ambient music (e.g. Brian Eno) or classical. Outside of work my tastes are pretty varied (rock, hip hop, house).
Which other phones should I be considering?
