Hi all, I'm in college studying audio engineering and have been shopping around for a good pair of headphones to use in my labs but can't decide what to go with. I'd like something either over-the-ear or noise-canceling so it's just me and whatever I'm working with and I'll probably use them for personal use with my guitars amp, audio receiver (for games and movies), and my iPod outside of class.
I was looking into the Sennheiser HD280 Pro over-the-ear headphones for their audio isolation and CNET gave them a great score (8.3) but I've heard the bass isn't really that great. I was also looking at Bose over-the-ear headphones in CC the other day but even though they sounded good I'm under the impression Bose is typically far to overpriced and there's something better in my price range. I'd like to stay within $150 which seems reasonable considering both the Bose headphones and the Sennheiser HD280 Pro are less than that.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
