Thanks for reading and for the nice reply! I’m sorry it took me a while to see it. Medium’s notification system is a huge nightmare pile of everything and I sometimes lose replies in the mess. :)
I probably need to update this article to include my findings over the last year and a half, but the Beyerdynamic lineup is still one of the best on the market as far as large pads goes. I hope you’re still enjoying them.
I’d never heard of the IXOS headphones until you mentioned them, and that sent me down a fun rabbit hole of reading, so thank you for that!
