I've been using a pair of Sennheiser HD215 headphones for a good few years now, and they're great! They are in your price range ($69, as of 02/03/2016) and meet all your requirements. They are over-ear headphones and are padded. They provide an extremely good fit and are adjustable: The Cable Admittedly the cable supplied is great, but it is very long (3 ...

Not so easy to find Gaming headset with 600ohm. I know the Sennheiser HMD 26-II-600-X3K1 but it's out of your range. 600ohm is better but it doesn't mean that you cannot use lower impedence headset (http://www.cnet.com/news/headphone-buyers-heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-low-vs-high-impedance-models/) Considering this, going for the HyperX Cloud ...

The digital board you're upgrading to should have individual monitor volumes. If not, I'd say it's a crappy board. That said, not many high-quality/professional-grade monitoring headphones have dedicated volume control anymore. It's usually all done through the hardware or software you connect them to. Anyway, the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO ($200) is ...

You've got two conflicting criteria: noise cancelling and shallow in the ear. Anything noise cancelling is also going to be as noise isolating as possible to avoid letting in excess sound to minimize the job the active cancellation needs to do. The best I can recommend would be something from Bose's in-ear lineup. They've all got inline mics and wired 3.5mm ...

Over Ear I've got the LinkWitz Casque Bluetooth headphones, which are an over-ear pair of wireless headphones with passive noise cancelling and a microphone. They run on a rechargeable battery (charges via microUSB - comes with a charging cable, though you probably already have one) that I've found lasts about 12-15 hours of regular but intermittent use. I ...

To answer your question: No, there are no headphones(over the ear, on the ear, earbuds) in existence that cannot be: Blown out, have their speaker components damaged over time from being played at maximum output. The same goes for high end speaker systems. Running a speaker system at full blast puts stress on all components, which will lead to parts ...

I would suggest the Denon AC-GC20. About 300€ in Germany Over-Ear Detachable cable Bluetooth Smart Supports modern codecs aptX Low Latency (High quality audio over Bluetooth) Active noise canceling (can be turned off) Dual mode (connect two devices at the same time) Very good sound quality and frequency response 20h playback time (Bluetooth) usable with ...

First off, I doubt any active noise reduction (ANR) is going to beat out good passive noise reduction (PNR) in-ear plugs ("stoppers"). ANR headphones will be more comfortable than PNR and may provide better overall noise reduction for part of the audio spectrum, but not for all of it. If you really need a replacement for a good set of in-ear plugs, you ...

Maybe two of FiiO-E6? A few dollars over your budget (for two). I have not used them myself, but are recommended reviewed on http://lifehacker.com/five-best-portable-headphone-amplifiers-1722800379 Response to comment: well, they meet your requirements of being pocket-sized: "1.6 x 0.4 x 1.6 inches ; 0.6 ounces" battery powered: "1 Lithium ion batteries ...

I personally use Etymotic HF5, and have used the cheaper ER-6i in the past (though I think they replaced that with the MC5). The Etymotics are in-ear-canal phones, and function as ear plugs, giving over a 35dB reduction in sound levels. They also play music really well, even at quite low volumes. That 35dB of noise isolation goes a long way to letting you ...

The Sennheiser HD range of headphones is one of the most comprehensive ranges on the market, and can suit a number of different needs. It ranges from the HD 203's I use at home (around £50, 15-19k Hz) right up to the HD 800's that are professional headphones (£1000, 8-50k Hz). Now, I probably wouldn't recommend either of these extremes - the 203's are good, ...

I'm going to recommend something slightly similar to the other answer. Take a look at the Sennheiser HD 229 headphones (link). They have great sound quality, and appear to match most of your criteria: Over ear design Durable, I've had them for some time. No batteries needed, no noise cancelling. Insulated against sound Yes, it goes without saying In your ...

Look at aviation headsets. A lot of small airplanes have big engines (compared to cars at least) with no exhaust treatment whatsoever, close to the cockpit, running at high power for long periods of time. Seems pretty close to what you're dealing with. Most headsets nowadays have additional connections for a phone and/or computer. I got one to use in ...

The xiaomi piston 2.0/2.1 (there's a 3.0 model out at the moment) out but I've never used it before. I know folks have ordered a pair into australia, and ordered it off ibuygou. OP's mentioned this model which seems to be a plastic varient of the 3.0 (the 2.0/2.1 had these too), but I'll talk about the ones I do have. Xiaomi's headphones do typically punch ...

The detachable double-ended coil cord with mic and remote is equipped with an L-plug end, providing improved durability and carrying ease.

For a recent vacation, involving multiple connecting flights, rental cars, hotel rooms and hiking, I bought the relatively cheap JLab JBuddies headphones for my children for less than $20 each. A couple notes: The over the ear component is small. It definitely wouldn't feel comfortable on my ears. I'm not sure about pre-teen, but for young elementary ...

I've not tried these personally - and as with any headphones, its a good idea to try any headphones for fit (tight headphones cause headaches) and sound quality if possible, but it sounds like considering your fear of EMF, you might want to consider a IR based unit. IR's basically the same technology used in remote controls, is line of sight, and its ...

Best earbuds for under $100, but comparable to $200+ earbuds.

This Audio A/B switch might be what you are looking for, because it provides exactly two inputs and one output as requested. Since you plan to use it with standard 3.5" jacks, you will need these extra cables to connect the PC and smartphone jack sockets to the switch input sockets. While those cables are required in your case, they are also useful to you,...

One manufacturer that offers Dolby Atmos headphones with above/below 360° sound is Plantronics with their RIG 800LX, 600LX and 400LX. Truth be told, Atmos works with any stereo headphones but it's bound to be a bit better with headphones that are licensed by Dolby. Another option is 7.1 headphones, with not just two stereo drivers but several. Razer Tiamat ...

V-Moda Crossfade headphones... circumaural (around-ear) closed-back for some noise isolation durable with replaceable parts (bonus: includes protective hard case) detachable cord in case it gets damaged no batteries stereo (yes, goes without saying) ~$100 ($80 on sale occasionally) decent sound quality (I'm no audiophile but they're definitely better than ...

In Ear For their price the Apple Airpods ($159) really are at the top of their market segment. You'll get the in-ear design you prefer and 3-5 hours of listening time per charge and another 3-5 hours after placing them in the charging case for just 15 minutes. Being an iPhone user you also benefit from features that an Android user would not, such as the ...

You can't, at least not on macOS. There's no high quality duplex audio Bluetooth profile, maximum what you can get is 16 kHz duplex SBC (mSBC, "Wideband speech"). It's better than SCO (8 kHz), but not dramatically. For some reason, Bluetooth SIG hasn't been interested in implementing high quality duplex audio since 2003. The only solution is available from ...

I personally use the Avantree Audiokast ($50) to connect my bluetooth headphones to my tv, and have been very happy with the functionality. I have mine connected via an optical cable currently.

It would be a pulse sensor to read one's pulse rate while exercising by the transmission of ultraviolet light or maybe infrared light through the skin to the receptor on the opposite side. It clips to one's fingertip. As blood flows through the smaller vessels, the light is alternately blocked and allowed to pass, providing appropriate data for the device ...

You could also consider custom-molded in-ears. As they’re precisely fitted for your ears alone, not only they block out noise more effectively, they can also be extremely comfortable. If you’re okay with deep insertion in-ears, you could check out the Etymotic ER4 as well. Or, consider foam eartips for your earphones.

Buy Apple EarPods. They are very loud, have volume up/down and pause buttons built in, and a microphone. My first pair lasted me years. They are $30 new I think and have great sound quality for the price. Again, it took me 4 years for the wires in them to come loose and unreliable. The don't have active noise cancellation, but do block out noise pretty ...

You might take a look at the Photive BTH3 Headphones off Amazon.com They go for just under $50. They are bluetooth, over the ear, have a built in mic and have a battery life of 12 hours (as they claim). The headphones also come with a carrying case. Hope this helps.
