After 1 1/2 years of mostly home-office, my company now decided to go back to the office 3/5 days. On top of that, we’re also moving into a new building which includes working in an open office. Not a fan of this, but i guess it’s the “hip” thing to do…
Anyways, for this situation i am looking for new headphones. Something that can keep out the office noise, which means i‘m looking for closed-backs.
As far as priorities go: first and foremost i am looking for comfort. The headphones will be on my head for quite a while.
Second is - of course - the sound quality (so please no Bose QC35 although they are comfortable as f). Mostly casual listening, no critical stuff. Nice, balanced sound, nothing fatigueing.
When it comes to budget… the cheaper the better, but i’d aim for around 100€ (120$, 85 Pounds?), not gonna crash the bank for the job. I will go over budget if it’s worth it.
I have a Fiio BTR3K which i’ll be moving to the office.
What i already have:
- DT 770’s - can’t deal with the highs for longer periods, so i won’t be bringing them to the office
- M40x’s - yeah, not comfortable enough for longer sessions
Any ideas are greatly appreciated, new workplace comes into effect in october.
