I've been looking for a while for a new pair of headphones and i've finally looked around enough to actually post something. I am looking for a large pair of over-ear headphones, with high noise cancellation, that are extremely comfortable and have a closed back design. Last year i did research on this website to find a pair of headphones. I ended up deciding to go with the JVC HA-S500 because of there large following and the low end price. I absolutely love the HA-S500 however they can be uncomfortable because the sit on my ear. I love the sound of the HA-S500s as well the bass heavy sound really works well with what i watch and i can always turn down the bass when i don't want it.
I am now looking for a pair of headphones that are able to be worn for hours at my desk with no comfort issues, surround my entire ear completely in the cup have plenty of padding to keep everything cushy. I also like the more bass heavy headphones like my HA-S500s so that would be a nice touch but i can deal with lower levels of bass.
I have looked through many headphones already and this is the results.
Skullcandy Mix master mike- I actually really liked these headphones even though they are skullcandy, only reason i didn't get these was because of the price and because of the cheap plastic construction at that price. I found the ear pads on these headphones to be great, very comfortable. The sound was great for what i wanted.
Bose QC-15- I really loved these headphones as well. The only reason i didn't buy these on the spot was because of the price, i really can't justify that kind of money for something i can easily break. Although these are small and on-ear the amount of noise cancelation and comfort the gave was good enough for me to include it in this list.
Turtle beach X12 - I found these extremly extremly comfortable. I don't know how long that comfort would have lasted but for the 10 minutes i wore them i couldn't even tell i was wearing them. I also found the sound quality to be very crisp, not the best but they were also gaming headphones.
Sennheiser assortment - I have tried many different Sennheiser's at different stores and every one i have tried that were over ear have way to much clamping force. Not to mention i really don't like the sound reproduction of them.
That being said, really all examples i gave are out of my price range so that's why i'm here. Thank you everyone for the suggestions.
