Yep Audiogon is one of the few places on the internet where that is not a dirty remark.
My current set of headphones broke in half the other night. So Iíve decided to step up my head phone game and buy a really good pair of head phones. Something I can use on my main system but also when Iím traveling.
After some quick research I realize that I am very behind and out of my element with headphones. I donít know the pros and cons of open back vs closed. Which brands are currently the best? Iíve looked at Sennheiser, B&W, and Grado but Iím open to any brand as long as the quality is there.
My uses are primarily for travel. In the car, train or plain Iíd like something that can block out ambient noise and not annoy the people next to me with music leakage. If I had to prioritize my needs it would be, 1: Sound Quality. 2: noise canceling 3: staying at or below $300.
Thank you for your help and thoughts.
