    The verdict on low end noise canceling headphones

    To get this out of the way, I am considering "low end" to be around and below 400$, and these headphones I have selected are what are available to me the most easily, which leaves me with very commercialized and mainstream headphones popular with people who aren't very particular about sound...

    Are Grado headphones comfortable?

    I want to buy sr125e but I see that it is on-ear which I worry might give too much pressure to the ears and hurt them on the long run.  I used to have a noise cancelling Bose (QuietComfort 15) and it was pretty comfortable to wear but it had a strange ear pressure (not on the ear itself but the...

    Best headphones for studying in the $200-250 range.

    I have a pair of the QC15's that I got as a gift, however I'm not terribly impressed with them especially when it comes to studying in the library, or blocking out roommate noise when I'm trying to sleep. Problem is, I don't have anything to really compare them to. I do like the design however...

    Noise canceling headphones and using line-level, a jack, or a headphone amp.

    If noise canceling designs have a built-in amp, are they designed to be used with a headphone jack or can they be used with an adjustable line-level? I assume a dedicated amp is not needed, but are there any known impedance considerations with feeding one line-level? Is the performance better...
