I've been reading many excellent and helpful threads and reviews in here. But I realise after a lot of research that I need some personal recommendations.
I am a sound designer who sometimes goes out and records my own atmospheres. I'm also a commuter who loves to listen to music on the go so the headphones I am looking for can't be massive. And for both purposes they should be fairly well isolated. I know that ideally I should get two pair of headphones but at the moment I can't spend the money on two decent sets, so could you please give me some recommendations that might fit both purposes?
I am aware that the HD25s are the standard and I have also occasionally used them, but find them uncomfortable. Is there an alternative? I've been looking at the ATH 50Ms but I have not found a place to listen to them. Could they be a good contender? Seems like people have split in opinions about them. I've considered many other options but I want to hear from you guys.
Any recommendations welcomed also if you want to convince me that the HD25s are the only way to go.
Thanks in advance,
