Most comfortable and lightweight over the ear headphones?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

I've been reading the forum for a long time, but I just decided to join.

 

 

I'm looking for a pair of light and comfortable headphones. I know comfort is subjective. But, well... 

 

 

I work in a very noisy office and I've been trying some headphones, so far, the most comfortable are the Bose QC25, but I find the noise-cancelling function is not that great, even for high frequency sounds. They also bother my ears, it's like windy sound coming from them, lol.

 

Is there something similar (in terms of comfort and weight) to the Bose QC25, but with better sound/quality? 

 

I don't have access to physical stores that sell Sennheiser, Audio Technica, etc.

 

I hope you can help me.

 

Thanks in advance! :)

Most headfones tat isolate well, are on-ear headclampers, or over-ears with thick pads...
if they dun have active noise cancelling features(ANC).

Hard to beat the qc25 , tats lightweight..noise cancelling n comfy...there's a trade off of sorts.

I recently tested the plantronics backbeatpro...not light not heavy...quite comfy..great soundg...ANC quite good..
Going for 165 on amazon now...a steal.

Having tested a few I found the QC25 to be the best overall. The Bose has the best noise cancelling available IMHO.
How about a pair of noise cancelling IEMs augmented with noise suppressing ear cups like the kind worn when working around loud power equipment. It's not beautiful but it may work for you.

Good luck.

Comfort is highly subjective. Though, if you don't mind open-back headphones (definitely not noise cancelling!), the Sony MDR MA900 springs to mind.

I know, they're the best noise cancelling! 

 

Unfortunately, I cannot wear ear cups. :(
