I’m wanting some new headphones to use with my phone around the house and for the occasional walk or trip top the shops. My cheap Anker wired earphones have died and using my wired Soundmagic E10’s is constantly getting me tangled.
Also I have a really fat head so a need something with plenty of stretch else I end up feeling like I’m in a G clamp!
Budget - been doing a bit of looking around - could maybe do the £250-£350 ones I see on amazon with their 5 month installment plan.
Source/Amp - Samsung Note 9 (upgrade in the autumn)
How the gear will be used - Mostly at home, cant bare to listen to the crap the Mrs watches on TV so I listen to music, podcasts and general YouTube videos. Will also wear for walks to say the shop or going pick my kid up etc. Most sources are soundcloud, Mixcloud, Spotify (all free) and I’m doing 3 month Tidal trial now
Preferred tonal balance - tbh I’m not that sure but I’m not a fan of the ‘Beats’ over bassed sound.
Preferred music genre(s) - Main one is various types of dance - Trance, techno, house etc… but then quite a bit of 80s synth, mild rock and punk pop.
Past gear experience - Well I’ve not really dived into the rabbit hole of high end stuff yet, the best I have used is my pc phones _AKG K702’s to a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi HD USB.
What aspect of your current listening experience would you like to improve? Well on my phone I have only used cheap Anker wireless and cheap wired SoundMagic’s so I’m sure we can do better.
So far I have in my amazon list - B&W PX7, Sony M3 and Sennheiser Momentum 3.
Any advice will be greatly received. Thanks in advance.
