The company I work for has encouraged it's employees to work from home for years. Well they are doing a complete 180 and requiring everyone to work in the office. I recently saw a demo of the proposed new "work spaces" at my office and lets just say it's going to be very close quarters!
So I am on a hunt for some nice headphones to help drown out some office noise and provide some privacy while listening to music. I will just be plugging them into my laptop to stream music online or playing my own mp3 library. I do listen to a lot of music that has lots of bass so that will be important. It shouldn't be over powering though. I just hate listening to songs with nice basslines and barely hearing them in certain headphones.
Criteria in order with the most important first
1) Must be comfortable to wear for 5+ hours
2) Able to drown out some of the typical office noises. I don't know if this means I will be in the noise cancelling category or not
3) Decent sound quality with bass present.
4) $150 or less
5) I don't plan on listening to them with high volumes but it shouldn't leak much so I don't disturb my co-workers
I really don't have a preference on size or style just as long as it fits comfortable for hours.
With $150 max I know I am not going to get the best in even 1 category. But there must be something out there that comes close to this. At least I hope :)
