Headphones

Recommended Posts

They didn't feel that shrilly to me but then again I didn't take any music with me when I tested them. I was very unfamiliar with the iTunes selection at the store (mostly electronic dance music). They sounded indeed similar to an AKG model that I also tried but I preferred the build quality and the comfort of the beyers. They were also much better than the celebrated Beyerdynamic DT-770, which have seriously beefed up bass ... A hiphopper's dream.

After a bit of research I've decided on this Bluetooth transmitter/reciever. 

 

Aventree Oasis

 

Possible a bit of an overkill for just headphones, but its very versatile has low latency and has great range of up to 50 meters. 

 

And for bluetooth headphones I've decided on the Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT .

 

Playing it a bit safe I guess, but I've never had a pair of Sennheisers that didn't sound excellent for its price. Its over the ear, open backed so quite suitable for orchestral music.

Apple has always made good hardware (albeit often overpriced), it is their software choices that are more often the problem

I was after a pair of Sennheiser PXC-250 (or even better, the 250 II) travel headphones. I have a PX-200-II set but it seems to have died on me. These are great fold up ones, but I can't find any of them in retail without having to resort to dodgy foreign outlets with low user ratings on eBay. Anyone know what the modern equivalent is?

Set up my Bluetooth transmitter and paired my Sennheiser HD4.40 BT to it. Its sounds very good. This appears to be a really nice sounding headphone. And getting great distances from the transmitter. 

 

Alex appears to be wrong?

To arm myself against 4 weeks of demolition works (the concrete complex behind my house), I decided get buy a secondhand Bose QuitComfort 25, which is a headphone set with noise cancellation. Only 110 Euro! And it sounds pretty good. If you don't believe me, read the reviews! But above anything, it reduces the sounds of the jackhammers by a considerable amount. I feel it drilling and hammering more than I can hear it!
