Headphones for Glasses Wearer
Hi, new to the forum, so hoping I am posting in the right place.
I am looking to purchase a new pair of headphones and upgrade my experience. Based upon the Headphone show video on “Best headphones for glasses” I am looking at an open back planar, but don’t want to spend more than $800 (and he recommended more expensive headphones in that video). So, trying to understand the overall weight and clamp of various headphones and the impact on my glasses.
I listen to mostly Rock / Pop, but with some classical thrown in. I currently use Tidal HiFi with DragonFly Black (with iFi IE Match) and FiiO FH7 (love these) and Grado SR80e off desktop computer and phone (both iPhone and Android with UAAP). The IEM’s work great with glasses and the Grado’s are on ear so they don’t bother my glasses, but looking for a bump up from the Grado (great detail, but short on base and no sound stage).
I was looking at Audeze LCD-X or 2, but thinking these will be too heavy and concerned about reduced treble. Hifiman Sundara looks perfect, but not sure how these will work with glasses. Ananda also look good, but not sure if the bigger earcups will be better or worse with glasses. Interested in people thoughts and recommendations?
