I have owned a few different pairs of high-end earphones before (currently using Monster Turbine Golds), but have always been dissatisfied with the fit of them in my ear canal. Trust me - I've tried every single eartip (foam, gel, etc.) out there, and have not found one yet to comfortably fit me.
As such, I'm in the market for a pair of nice headphones, with a budget of about $300 - $350 or so. I'm not an audiophile, and don't have any specific requirements, but was hoping that I could get some recommendations and suggestions for a good pair here. I've done some preliminary research and looked through reviews for headsets by Sennheiser, Bose (QC-15 and QC-3), and AKG, but it's all very confusing given that each of the headsets have an average rating of four/five stars, and all claim to be "the best."
It might be of relevance to note that I don't intend on purchasing an amp; some reviews that I've read have stated that I need an amp to get the maximum mileage out of some cans, but I'm really just looking for a pair that can be used without one.
Thanks in advance!
