I am trying to find a good pair of headphones, mainly for use in the office... I have spent many hours and thought I had narrowed it down to the M50x but I'm still not sure as I see a few reviews saying the leakage isn't great. However, maybe I am being too sensitive about the leakage on the M50x - I am unlikely to listen to them on a loud setting.
- Good neutral sound quality (although mainly to be used with a phone)
- Around £100
- On-ear or over-ear
- Low leakage as I am in an office
- Prefer a short cable
- Prefer removable cable for when stowed away (my last pair (£35 Sony) broke at the cable entry point)
- Comfortable/lightweight esp. when wearing glasses
- A hard case is a bonus
I have narrowed down my shortlist to the following, based on recent reviews and round-ups. Next step is to go through and eliminate based on my criteria...
Audio Technica ATH-WS55i
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Studio Monitor Professional Headphones - Black
Shure SRH 440 Headphone
AKG Y50 Foldable On Ear Design Headphone with Remote/Microphone - Black
Bose ® SoundTrue On-Ear Headphones - Black
SONY PRO MDR7506 Headphones Pro closed
Any help narrowing down the list or adding suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you very much.
