On-ear Headphones for TV/Movies


Novice Member

Luke here, from Melbourne, Australia.

I am looking for a medium-range (around A$250-300) headphone primarily to watch movies at night – I can't use speakers as I am your average father of 3 and wife will kick me out if I keep awaking the kids when they're already in bed.

Now, the obvious choice would be an over-ear headphone such as one of the Sennheisers or Sonys to enjoy some surround effects, but I have an issue with my ears getting really hot with headphones and after 1 hour I have to take the headphones off – so, over-hear are a no-go to me.

The choice seems to fall on an on-ear headphone, although I understand these are more designed for music.

I was looking at the Beats Solo Pro, but not being an expert, I am afraid I will throw away my money without getting any benefits. Also, I am not even sure I can easily connect it to my LG BX tv.

Any audio-savvy guru out there available to offer some recommendations?
