Please let's just stop trying to prove ourselves and get on with the topic?
Why don't we just both grow up a bit? I'll stop with the arguing bs.
I'm honestly tired of it.
I take back anything I said that may have offended you, I really do. I think you make very valid points.
Alright. I am cool with that. And I apologize if I offended you.
In that case, I have two lasts pieces of advice. You can continue to read beyond that if you care.
1 ) Try posting on head-fi.org. People on this site are either gamers or audiophiles. Head-fi can help with more specific situations like yours.
2 ) I do not want to recommend this, but I also suggest you try to audition headphones at best buy. IDK what your best buy might be like, so IDK what headphones they might have on display, but you might be able to demo a few ANC headphones and figure out what you like and don't like. (You may have already tried this, and if you have then I am sorry for wasting your time).
Here is the problem. There aren't too many ANC headphones that are any good. By that I mean that the headphones are made of plastic, the headbands break often, they simply are not a smart investment.
Bose is not the company it used to be. Their headphones are not as solid, nor are they as good sounding as they used to be.
Sennheiser is a pretty solid choice. But they overcharge for their name. If you are ok with that, then they are a great choice. They blocked out a lot of noise at best buy, but I think that the pads on the PXC 450 don't seal the head extraordinarily well. You could always exchange the pads though and have a more quiet listening environment
Zik to be honest just seems like a total gimmik. The guy who designed it is some fancy designer which means that they are over priced for the look, the drivers were having issues at launch so the quality control isn't that great, and I hear there is a problem with audio interference.
That being said, they have fixed the driver issue, and I don't hear too many complaints about the interference. So it is a gamble. That is all I know.
Hopefully that was helpful.Edited by Tjj226 Angel - 2/27/13 at 1:31pm
