    Default Noise Cancelling Headphones

    It was just amazing. I went to Best Buy to buy some black ink and found myself testing headphones (I needed one because my old one with my old headphone's wear and tear over the years has made it... yeah.)

    I found the noise canceling Bose ones... and was extremely impressed. It was like love at first sight (except.... this is love at first hearing.) It pretty much took away every-single-noise that was in Best Buy (including the flight simulation background noise... that I could not hear whatsoever while using the headphones.)

    The sad part about this was that $300 dollar price tag >.<....

    I'll have to check that out myself.

    I had heard great things about skull candy earphones, and I blew 90 bucks and was disappointed >:E

    i used to use bose. i actually use that as my hands free for my mobile phone.

    for music i love shures. i use the Shure SE535 but that's because i'm always on airplanes and i listen to a lot of classical music and jazz. they run at about $500.



    the SE210's ~$200 are fine if you're just commuting. and it's about $300 cheaper.

    Are those noise cancelling as well? How well do they deal with the 'microphonics' and occlusion sounds that inevitably arise from canalphones, when the cable is moved/tugged etc? How is the treble response? All canalphones I have tried have terrible response in the upper range (although er6i were most tolerable), since they produce a standing wave in your ear causing a nasty dip and peak in the response. The midrange and bass of good canalphones tends to be excellent though (in my opinion).

    noise cancelling head phones would be nice in theory, but i do want to at least have a chance of hearing someone attack from me behind.plus i'll be damned if i spend 300 on head phones.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    i like in ear head phones. is that what you're asking? over the headphones
    are too bulky for travelling and mess up my hair.

    I have these V-moda's and I love them. They're a good price, good bass range [I love bass!] and I can hear quite well with them, even in noisy environments. I do get some complaints to fix my mic from time to time though because my voice is low or the mic ends up behind my head somehow, I don't know if that has to do me or the mic.

    I have the Bose QuietComfort3 headphones. They are nice for flying and I use them for studying, too, because I'm sensitive to noise. Didn't do much comparison shopping, just liked them at the store.
