NWZ S639, earphones and sensitive ears!!


Standard Member
Hi, I was hoping someone may be able to help me? I have just bought a Sony S639 MP3 player. I was thinking of upgrading the headphones to try and get the best SQ without going overboard and buying a set that may be to good and expose any flaws in the player.

I have a budget of £100 but I could go up to £200 if this would be a worthwhile gain. My other problem is, my inner ears are very sensitive and comfort must be my first priority. This would make my second priority, sound quality. I understand that all ears are different but if there is a brand or specific model that really stands out for comfort and sound quality, this is what I am looking for. I would also be very interested in a pair of headphones that cover the entire ear for use around the house and have a similar budget in mind.

Any help, advice, would be very gratefully received...

Regards, Steve.
