I'm looking for headphone which covers the whole ear, "around-the-ear", which I thought was called "over-the-ear" headphones, because I think its more comfortable and seems to help isolating the external noise. I have never used a good headphone, my headphone now, which is a headset, is a Microsoft LX-3000, and the pads are not comfortable and don't cover my ears and my friend suggested the AKG K99, which says in the discription that is a "over-the-ear", but the holes in the pads are the same size of my LX-3000. Sometimes I see the categories like "full-sized" and "over-the-ear" together, I suppose that a full size headphone would be the one which overs the whole ears, instead of stay on it.
Can anyone help me with this concepts?
Other thing is, the AKG K99 would cost me like, US$ 90, and phones listed, like, the KOSS PRO 100 DJ and the JVC HA-RX900 would be like US$160. The Superlux HD 681 would cost US$ 75, and it's what we have in my country's market (Brazil ).
Based in Amazon formula's to our price: "(PRICE+10)*2,40*2" I'd be paying US$ 270 for ATH-M50.
