hotdensestate Posted July 31, 2011 Share Posted July 31, 2011 I have about $50 to spend on reasonably nice headphones. (But not the fucking ridiculous kind that cost much more than said $50 I am willing to pay.) Everyone here listens to music so you all should suggest reasonably nice headphones that I could buy and yeah. I want the kind that goes over your ears and blocks out a lot of sound really well because I live in a noisy house and it sucks trying to do homework during the day in here because our birds will never shut up. So don't be like, "ooh I bought these really nice earbuds at such-and-such a time" because I don't want earbuds, I want headphones that make everything quiet. (And play well with nice clear bass and all that jazz.) If this belongs in the Technology section I'm sorry but nobody ever looks there. So I put it here. I was thinking about getting a $50 pair of Sony noise-cancelling headphones but then I realized that I think noise-cancelling headphones a) according to my audiophile friend ruin sound quality and b) don't even work for intermittent sounds anyway (only for background hums and things like that) so they wouldn't be very helpful unless my birds were screeching absolutely constantly (which thankfully they don't do nor have ever done). So those are out, but I still have $50 to spend on reasonably nice non-noise-cancelling headphones (but I still want headphones that passively block out a lot of noise anyway).
