Although bulkier than ear buds, these headphones are great for a music fanatic like myself. I don’t wear these on the go, but I always appreciate the comfort and sound of a over-ear headphone vs. ear bud while studying or relaxing.

I tried 3 headphones while at Definitive in Seattle:

 What they look like:  Brand, Pricing & Details
bw-p3-series-2 Bowers&Wilkins P3  $199

  • iPhone compatible remote control cable
  • Light and Foldable
bw_p5_series2 Bowers&Wilkins P5 $299

  • You can change the ear cushions
  • iPhone compatible
  • Natural Sound and Exceptional Bass
audeze-el8-headphone Audeze EL-8 Open  $699

  • Planar magnetic drivers
  • Crystal clear sound
  • Cutting-edge industrial design

Experimenting with a variety of products is crucial to discovering your favorite set of headphones. Sound is pretty personal and I have found it’s important to try out multiple headphones to ensure that the sound and fit works for you – nothing is worse then being disappointed in your investment.

September 22nd was the first day of fall! And with that, I am back at Syracuse University, focusing on my studies. I’m now using my headphones daily and there’s something about slipping a pair over my ears — the outside world disappears. I would like to thank Definitive for this opportunity to visit their beautiful Seattle Showroom, write blogs over the summer, and I would like to thank you for reading!
