    I am looking for suggestions for good, over the ear headphones. Currently own a pair of Bose, which are still functional, but getting old. I use a cochlear implant, serves similar purpose as a hearing aid, to simplify explanation, but i hear sound outside of my ear, hence the need for over the ear. Clarity and comfort, and of course, style, are most important. Thanks for any suggestions!

    What is your price range?

    BTW, don't touch Beats or Bose with a ten foot pole.

    Don't have a real price range; I am open as long as they are quality headphones. Of course, I'd rather spend $200 than $500 :D

    Looks I misinterpreted the term "Over the Ear".

    Whoops my bad :eek:

    ----------

    I'd suggest these. I have these for when i travel on the plane and they are very good.

    Thanks for the replies thus far; will check them out.

    I would prefer inline controls for iPhone/iPad/iPod.

    Bowers & Wilkins C5 headphones. They are in-Ear design while the P5's are the over the ear style.

    Great headphones!
