Just got a new job, one that requires a lot of long hours. Unfortunately, all my headphones are open, which, while fantastic when I was working by myself, not so great when I'm at a desk with 8-10 others. Over ear is preferred since I wear glasses, but on ear may be okay as well. The biggest issue is that I'm going to be wearing these things for up to 12 hours at a time, so comfort is a must. As for what kind of sound I'm looking for, I need something slightly warm, without being too fun/punchy, or else listening fatigue will start to set in. Usually a mix of EDM, classical piano/violin, classical guitar, and a small smattering of acapella. I'll be listening through a Fiio E10 amp. Anything from between $100-200 would be perfect. Currently looking at Brainwavz HM5's as my best bet, but that pleather... doesn't look like it'd feel too great after hour 3 or 4. Maybe if it were softer. Any suggestions?
