Need New Over Ear Headphones

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a new set of over the ear headphones to use while I am at work to block out the office noises, conversations, phones, printers etc. I will be keeping these at my desk so portability isn't a big issue.They need to be comfortable for long periods of time and have decent sound isolation. Right now my budget is under $100. I listen to a wide variety of music genres. I like country, rock, classic rock, metal, rap, r and b, dubstep etc. With the majority of music that I listen to, the headphones need to have a decent amount of bass. So far I have tried out the Sony xb500 and they had decent sound but my ears are sweating after an hour of wearing. Then I tried the Audio Technica ATH M30 but the ear cups put pressure on the tips of my ears and I can only wear them for an hour or so. I've thought about getting a pair of Sennheiser hd280 pro as they have a bigger ear cup, but I haven't heard a lot about them.

Hi,

 

You should read about Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80)

 

Best Luck!

I wouldn't get the HD280 if you had a problem with the M30. I recommend:

Creative Aurvana Live!
ES FC300
Martin Logan Mikros 90

Haven't heard the CAL! but people sure do like them. The Mikros and FC300 are in another league compared to cans under $200.

I would reccomend the Logitech ue 6000 (has noise cancelling). A lot of people on head fi really like it.
