Best closed headphones $200-$300

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Long story short Im working as a mechanical Engineer and the noises in the factory are driving me crazy, so basically I need a pair of headphones that can isolate me from every kind of sound.

 

Recommendations? 

 

Budget: 200-300 (maybe more If its really good) 

 

FYI: Right now I have a pair of Sennhiser 598, which are good but they're a pair of opened headphones.  AMP: at home an ODAC and at work I have an Asus Xonar STX.

 

Sorry for any kind of mistake, English isn't my native language.

Based on U.S. pricing and not knowing how load your factory is, I recommend the NAD VISO HP50.

 

IEM's offer additional options.

 

If you need active noise cancellation, that put us in an entirely different category.

It's not even that loud, just annoying, like a fan on medium speed all the time. The problem is that I draw circuits and I like to lose my self on music while doing it.

 

I was looking for something more comfortable like the Sennheiser HD8, but I don't want to spend that much on something that I will only use at work.

What kind of music will these be used for?  There are plenty of good closed headphones in that price range (using US dollars that is), such as the AKG K550 and Audio Technica ATH-A900X for even less.

Mrspeakers Mad Dog is a 300 dollar closed over ear, pretty good for the price. You could look into these (Just always try before you buy)

 

For a lot less, you could also get the Beyerdynamic DT770 pro (There's a limited 32 ohm version, easy to drive). Just like with the Mad Dogs, try before you buy.
