The best of all worlds?
apologies for another "which headphones should I buy post", but....
i want a pair of headphones mainly for listening to music on my ipad and mainly whilst commuting. I tend to listen to pop / rock and it tends to more vocal heavy, I.e. not looking for a set of bass heavy cans.
I currently have an old pair of in ear klipsch image s4 which are fine but getting a bit old and I am thinking of upgrading. I am thinking of moving from the in ears to a pair of over ear. This is mainly due to comfort issues, but I won't lie and say that they way they look is fairly important too. I understand that as I will be using these mainly for travelling / commuting I should get a pair of closed back headphones. Am I correct?
also, I am thinking over ears as opposed to on ears as they are likely to isolate outside noise better. Again is this right?
I have a budget of up to 200, maybe 250 at a push and have been thinking of:
focal spirit one
beyer dynamic dt 770
what do you all reckon?
as you may have guessed from my post, I am a bit of a newbie with not a lot of knowledge in this area, so please be gentle! Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.
