"over-ear/wireless headphone recs? (in $200-300 range)"


          

currently have the Audio-Technica ATH-S700BT, which looks like it just crapped out on me (after a good 3-4 years of constant use)

Really like them, my first pair of Sennheisers, first pair of wireless, first pair of noise-cancelling (before that I always got those $130 Bose over the ears) so can't really compare them to other wireless/noise-cancelling.

- the sound on these is already a noticeable notch above the ATs--feels like it's a "wider" frequency response

- it's "touchscreen" controls (just a flat pad on the right ear cup and you swipe your finger accordingly to play-pause/volume control/ffwd-rwd). it'll take some getting used to but im sure ill prefer in end

- my only minor gripes are design-related..you twist the earcup to turn on/off? (just give me a simple button) the buttons to control features (noise-cancelling, some other "effect" thing and the bluetooth switch) are kinda on the small side..and to me doesnt give a clear "it's now on or it's now off" regardless of what side you have it on

feel free to ignore my gripes though..im the type of person where even if a 100 people tell me "drop the iphone & get a samsung", i'll stick with the iphone just because i simply dont want to learn a whole new phone at this point (regardless of how superior it is)

(person that first recommended these sennheisers..thank you though. like i said the sound is fantastic..if you have any random thoughts on how to make these more user-friendly for the newbie, feel free to chime in..)

i have the first version of these, just waiting for these to go on sale so that i can warranty into them lol

https://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-Crossfade-Wireless-Codex-Qualcomm/dp/B07DMMXC9L

the ones i have dont fold down, have less battery life and dont support the newest codex. the sound is supposed to be the same. its a fun sound, some emphasis on bass but not overpowering. i just wish the ear cups were a bit larger as they dont go all the way around my ears. need like 5mm more lol

had them since 2017. They've been workhorses. Dropped them off the roof, once, while I was cleaning the gutters. I have different styles of headphones, but these are the ones I use when I do housework or yard work (the only ones I can hear, easily over the lawnmower)

wished I'd gotten this sale price, but my they were a new model when I got'em.

they sound fantastic. good depth on the bass. loud enough and I can hear all the little sounds in the music.

only issue is the auto-off. most shut-off features are for when the device hasn't been used within a certain amount of time. these don't work like that. these shut off when your phone/tablet's BT is off. I never turn BT off on my devices since there's no reason to. all that to say, these stay on forever until you actually turn them off.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme
