Closed back headphones for listening

Post by kingtoad » Sun Jun 29, 2014 6:11 am

Hi all,

I lost my pair of Sennhesier hd25 headphones recently, so I'm in the market for some new ones. I liked the sound of the hd25s but they were uncomfortable for me to wear for longer periods of time - I have quite large ears so the pads were resting on my ears rather than cupping around them.

Is there anything out there with a similar sound to the hd25s but with larger earpieces?

This is strictly for casual listening, not for mixing or audio work of any kind. I have some hd600s which I love but need something closed back for when I'm out and about.

Budget wise I'm willing to spend up to around ?200.

Any suggestions?

I love the Senn HD380 - very comfortable with large earcups that surround the ear, come with a travel/storage case (not a bag), and they sound pretty nice. Should be well within your budget, in fact I think the price on them recently dropped. Showing 99 squiggly bits on Amazon UK.
