I've recently picked up yet another set of headphones Sony MDR-XB950N1 and as always the excuse was that they'll improve my productivity 😂. The honest truth was that they were a different version of the headphones I already love Sony MDR-XB950B1 with one additional feature (active noise cancellation) and came in my favorite stealth black color scheme.
For how relatively inexpensive they are (under $200) I found them to have a wonderful soundstage and with a push of a button I can add a bit of extra bass to get that oomph. Now that the new set has an active noise cancelling feature I've already found a few use case where it really helped to turn it on. For example: if you have a fan going, it does a great job of drowning it out without pumping up the volume too high and sacrificing your hearing. Also the joy of not having tangled wires and the freedom to move around is a huge deal for me.
What is your favorite set of over-the-ears headphones for work?
