I am looking for a pair of headphones comparable to the WH-1000XM3's. However, I cannot use headphones with noise-canceling due to the pressure aspect related to a medical issue. I do not like the quality difference of the WH-1000XM3's with noise-canceling turned off.
I was recommended to try studio headphones. I do not need the bells and whistles, I only want then for listening to music (Classic and modern rock, new and modern metal, and some electronic and EDM).
What options would you recommend that are equal or better than the WH-1000XM3's? Since my phone is USB-C, would an adapter run quality of the headphones are not wireless?
Thank you for your help,
