how bryn listens : sennheiser headphones
These aren't exactly pretty, but they have changed my life!
The Sennheiser RS 140 Wireless Balanced Headphones are thrillingly freeing. I plug the base into my laptop and then throw on the cushy, large headphones, which are so large that they fully enclose my ears without any uncomfortable pressure. I can listen to hours of music while moving easily around the studio, even walking to the scanner or kitchen to wash my hands (roughly 20-30 feet from my desk). They block a good amount of outside noise as well, keeping me focused. The set recharges when placed on its base and I've never run into a battery issue, even though I only charge them at night.
You can purchase them from Amazon. They are certainly splurgy at about $140, but it could be worth it if you're a heavy listener!
