Can anyone recommend some?
I'm looking for 2 sets and don't really know where to start.
Varying budget, but not cheap.
One that I can wear all day, preferably portable with a case. I'm freelancing and moving from office to office so portability, noise reduction/cancellation & comfort are important.
The second pair are for working out. I used to use the 'inner ear' ones but they irritate my ears.
So these have to be practical & portable.
I use these, have had them for around 2 years, haven't put a foot wrong http://www.google.co.uk/products…
Best ones I have ever owned...
- also good isolation for price too.
not enough for using for DJing though23kon
- I can back this up. I bought them strictly because they look cool - and was happily surprised that they sound decent too.jtb26
- I have these too. Good sound, cheap, and noise canceling (without electronic, really cups your ears well, and limits outside sound.)inhaler97
- outside sound.)inhaler97
- Still rate and love these23kon
- also good isolation for price too.
I've never been big into earbuds, but these are the most comfortable pair I've ever used. I can wear them for hours at a time.
- I had these but the little buds and the wires are not built well. Mine fell apart within a year.monospaced
- sounded great though!monospaced
- not headphonesinteliboy
i just did some research regarding new phones, so i paste it here: the best ones i ever had were named quart. they had brilliant sound - i guess it would be called »flat« sound - like most unaltered? anyway they disappeared from the market, but respawned as maestro - manufactured by the original mb quart staff. http://www.german-maestro.de/EN/…
they will definetly be my next purchase - i could always recommend them. used them on a daily basis for many (about 12) years. most durable and comfortable. make sure not to buy phones with the old quart brand - those are chinese rip-offs. check the background story: http://wiki.faust3d.com/wiki//in…
these are great. Big headphones are ok but become annoying after awhile. Apple's headphones suck you have to crank the volume really loud to hear anything - but the Bose IE2 are the best I have ever had. More than you want to pay maybe, but really comfortable and you can hear really well. I turned my volume way way down once I got them - and I sometimes forget they are in.
LOL, another headphones thread...
- that picture is SO helpful. What the fuck are they?monospaced
- TMA-1's fools gold edition... chillcruddlebub
- it's in the url of the pic, lazy ass fooprophetone
I find that the standard Apple headphones are the best for working out. Only because they are really light, flimsy and dont hurt the ear while you are moving about and doing your work out thing. True, sound isnt the greatest, but you are working out -- looking for perfect treble and bass shouldnt be much of a concern.
As for work headphones, I use these Bose OE. I have them for about 6 years now. Perfect sound and dont hurt my ears during long periods of usage. They fold up nicely, so its great for travel.
- Apple Ear Buds don't fit my ears properly. Sound like doo-doo too.mg33
if your concern is sound fidelity, stay away from bose. You can find better options from trusted brands at less cost :)Miguex
- brands at a better price. :)Miguex
- I agree. Bose sound is so fucking weird. Pleasing, very pleasing, but faaar from accuratemonospaced

- They are badass! Out of all of the ones I listed my favorite are the REMXD by Tenqa. They are Bluetooth and sound great and only $40.blametheintern
LOVED my old AKG headphones... but some people hated them, as the pads hurt their ears, so try before you buy!
AND... beware of fakes:
- a great classic, still used for reference by sound pros wordlwide. I recently switched to senheiser from these thoughMiguex
- I found that some low frequencies were missing on my sony's but mids might be a bit muddierMiguex
- They are exactly the same as the older MDR-V6, only pricier and with a gold plug.raf
- I have 3 pairs of MDR-V6, they're fantastic.raf
for work i have sennheiser hd280s, because they're noise cancelling and comfortable and don't produce any sound to the people around.
for home i have sennheiser 550s, which are open and super comfortable and have outstanding sound, but since they're open you can hear what is being played from pretty far away.
- neither of these are in-ear, the 280 is much more practical.colin_s
- the TMA-1's are noise cancelling and produce no noise either, love senn's...cruddlebub
- ..but the las few pairs i have had have broken! :(cruddlebub
- batman headphonesinteliboy
I got these in the end.
- does the noise cancelling work well? feedback please :)23kon
- It does yeah, they are pretty noise cancelling without it activated.Stugoo
Ignoring that last post, how about some Swedish ones?
- The a-Jays Four have 0 bass, not that I need a lot, but they were bad. I was so bummed cause they looked awesome.crillix
- But, but, they're SweeeedishPeter
