I joined this forum for the purpose of asking this question. We'll start with a little history:
I use headphones with my iPad and iPhone. I listen to music and watch movies. I HATE in the ear headphones. I really liked the first pair that I used with the devices but I lost it. This is what I was using:
I bought one of those models with Skype in mind, since it has the built in microphone—The mic was very sensitive and very well placed and adjustable.
I got the next pair as a gift:
The sound is good and like the noise cancellation feature but it lacks the mic.
As I am composing this, I see that Bose combined the models:
It looks awesome, but for $399.95 I'd like to perform some research which I why I am here :)
I have a good ear and can tell what sounds better, but I don't have a lot of experience with headphones. In my circles, Bose is known as the best. Do you folks confer or are their other brands that you prefer. These are my requirements:
Full sized around the ear (adjustable for a perfect fit would be nice!) with a comfortable fit.
Built in (I like the Bose adjustable by sliding down the wire technique) microphone.
I don't care about a lot of bass.
Bluetooth would be cool but the company would have to stick a wire somewhere to hang the mic.
Based on my needs, should I purchase the Bose model or are their similar headphones with these features that are cheaper, or are there better models?
