I'm looking for a pair of headphones that I can use at work and also for some amateur recording at home. I want to find the best balance between isolation from outside sounds, quality and comfort. Here are a few phones I've been recommended:
AKG Pro Audio K271 MKII
Direct Sound EX29
Sennheiser HD-280 PRO
AKG K 701
I'm worried enough about my hearing since I've had tinnitus for years and I want to continue performing and listening to music. Work drives me nuts so I need a distraction, something that can cut off outside sounds without having to blast the volume. I hope these descriptions aren't too vague and someone can offer some advice. I'd like to cut off my price range at $350 or so. Thanks in advance.
