Okay, thanks for more info.

As mentioned, for closed back headphones at the moment, I’m using:

Ohms is just how easily the headphones can be driven.. so if you use a cellphone to listen with headphones, you’d probably want the 32 Ohm version.  If plugging into an audio interface or computer, the higher ohm versions should work fine!  (My open backs are 250 Ohm and my audio interface drives them great).

For closed-backs headphones that I do not own, I’ve had my eye on these models for awhile.. cannot promise performance:

  • Sony MDR7506  (These have been very popular for YEARS!)
  • Audio Technica ATH-M50x  (The M40x is also a choice.. but I’d probably go for the little extra money here).
  • Sennheiser HD 280  (I’ve also seen these around for YEARS.. there looks to be an old and new refreshed model out there)..

Also take note if a headphone is over-ear (goes over the whole ear), or on-ear (just goes on top of your ear).

I’ve enjoyed over-ear over the years for breathability.  The models listed can be both over-ear or on-ear so read carefully!

Let me know if you have ANY questions before proceeding with purchase!

What will you be mainly using the headphones for?
