Thanks for the help though, seriously. I picked up a pair of Sennheiser’s at the Big Blue & Yellow Store of Easy Returns last night. Plugged into my Android, they suck in a way that I’ve not experienced in ages. Plugged into the computer though, and they’re not bad. I don’t know if they’re $80 good though. I’m wearing them today to see if they stay comfortable.
Interestingly, some of the Bose headphones they had on display were awesome, but too damned expensive. Bose tends to be like that.
These are over the ear type so they have a passive quieting factor to them (the noise reduction Bose felt like someone shoved a vacuum on my ears, but it was quiet!) plus they have that visual “Leave me alone” factor to them.
Maybe I should start blogging naked women wearing headphones and get millions of hits a day.
