Right, the situation goes I'm looking for a nice pair of headphones which are comfortable in the way of the padded ears (if that makes any sense?! as in the soft leathery feel...), obviously a pretty good sound quality and FINALLY, a reasonable size lead. I've looked at lots of nice headphones that look top, but they're leads are around 2.5-3m so probably designed for studio use, does anyone know of anything more suitable for a commute? When I say about the padded ears i'm thinking through common sense and past experience, earbuds seem to get quite uncomfortable after a while so I'm presuming closed headphones would suit me better. Also they're going to be used on flights so do closed cut out sound better? Look forward to your replies & thanks in advance!
