post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Im looking for new headphone most of all for music

I need a over ear headphone.
My max badge its 90$ from Amazon.

I've tried Creative Aurvina Live and i return them because thay had big heat problem.

And today I got the Audio-Technica m30x
And not just they have heat problem but also the cable is too long its 3 meters.

So what headphone do you recomand for max 90$ ?

I need a good qulity for music and very importend they will not have heay problem at all.

Thanks for helping

Open headphones will be the best for eliminating the build up of heat, but of course you won't have any isolation.

I don't understand.

 

What I am looking for is a over ear headphone (like the ones I said on the build).

 

But I want its not to get heat up after I am using it for half hour.

 

Is there no such  a thing?

This buying guide will explain the difference between open and closed headphones.

Closed headphones can always have some buildup of heat because your ears are sealed into the cup with no air movement from outside. It is your ears generating the heat.

Some things to avoid...

-Leather/pleather earpads

-Closed earcups

-The smaller the better

 

I find they all get pretty warm though. (speaking from experience with K701, HD580-650, 240s)

I wonder would velour earpads be an option for less sweaty heat for closed headphones?

It might help because it breathes a little more than leather.

So "Open" headphones get less heat?

 

Basically I use headphone only at home, because my sister that in other room hear my music, so the "open" will be good because she still won't hear it from other room.

 

Can you recommend me a "open" headphone for max 90$ from Amazon?

Well, When I think open headphones that might not cause heat issues..these come to mind.

 

http://www.amazon.com/Grado-Prestige-Series-SR-60i-Headphones/dp/B0006DPMU4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396634947&sr=8-1&keywords=grado+sr60i


Would be great for the price point you are looking for. They have a non-pleather cup, and I believe you can even get velour replacement cups if you feel these ones are still causing too much of a heat issue. I want to say the cord might not be too long either.

 

Hope this helps~!

Yeah open cans with velour pads are going to build up less heat than pleather / closed.  Although I find any type that goes around my ears to get warm and toasty after a little while.

 

I always gravitate towards my Grados, portapro and KSC75 when I want to stay cool... but those are on-ear types.

Open headphones are open to the air out the back. So for me, they tend to help.

He meant having an open-back headphone that draws fresh air in when the driver pumps in and out. That's not a guarantee though - Grados are usually the coolest because the opening covers the entire driver area and there isn't much around your ear on the earpad end since it's an on-ear design. The HD600 for example has a huge open back but since the pads go around your ears the air essentially gets trapped there, and neither are there any alternate sources of fresh air.

 

The only headphone that can guarantee your ears are cool are 1) waaaaaay out of your budget and 2) good luck finding one even if you had the cash.

Actually, I was thinking of the natural convection that will also happen because of the heat differential between the inside and the outside. Well, assuming one is not expecting this to happen outside when it's 100 degrees out smily_headphones1.gif

So you saying that no matter what headphone I will buy, either over-ear or on-ear still there will be heat problem?
