So ... I have a problem. I bought a pair of Sony MDR-ZX700. They sounded great and were pretty comfortable. Although they did feel a bit weird on the top of the head after a couple of hours.
Then all of a sudden ... they were dead. What I think happened, is that one day my volume was jacked up on my laptop and they were plugged in and KABOOM no speaker in the ear.
Time goes by ... I miss my headphones and have used some uber cheapo buds to fill the void for 'have to' things.
But now I am back in that spot where I simply can't live with that. My music sounds terrible.
So then I go to the store ... and I listen to like 50 headphones, and something is just off. I dont know what ... but that same Sony sound I just wasn't getting from the Beats and the Rastafarian ones and the Bose etc. And I know I am a novice ... but how can they all sounds SOOOO different.
So then I come out online and end up here again because its the one solid piece of advice I got before. One key difference, I'm not necessarily worried about money as much this time.
Looking for your guidance. Over the Ear. Comfortable. Sounds like the artist intended. Less than $500. And I cant carry a amplifier everywhere, so those kind are out. Noise Cancelling isn't a worry at all. And fool proof, as evidently I exploded the last pair because I forgot to turn down Windows volume on start-up.
