Girlfriend looking for good noise cancelling cans.

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, my lady is looking for some nice, bass heavy noise canceling cans. All the ones I seem to find are around the 450 dollar range, which is strange since I never figured they would be so much. Her budget range is around 200 dollars, and like always. For a reference, she really likes the 595s, but she really is in the market for noise cancellation.

Wel personally I think she's secretly telling you she'd like you more if you would just shaddup but seriously though, check out bose noise cancelling area like they sell at best buy. Not that high on the bass spectrum, but still great noise cancelling headphones. On the plus side, they're extremely light! You'd do better if you had a budget of around 300, as it seems thats where the good ones seem to be located at

Well, lets throw the noise canceling out of the mix. She wants to be able to listen to her MP3 player, and she really just wants some good cans.

Sorry about the double post, but my lady is REALLY trying to get those Dr. Dre headphones, and I am doing my best to sway her away from spending 300 bucks on those.

so, no noise canceling?

I really like my Audio Technica ESW9s, and they have some nice bass . I think it can be bought for $200 or so, but beware of fakes

That, or maybe Beyerdynamic DT770s. I've never owned it before, but I've heard lots of good things about that one

My Sennheiser RS-160's arent 'noise canceling' but they do a good job of it. Cant hear anyone talking to me and they cant hear my music.



My 595's on the other hand are just awesome lol.

Sennheiser's.

The HD595's are just plain epic. Even the 'lowly' HD280 Pro's are great.

Why she'd want to spend $300 on Beats is beyond me, unless she wants to be like the sheep that see the ad and go ZOMGDRDRE.
