Please recommend the best sounding headphones for my laptop I'm heading for college soon and want headphones that produce a sound reminiscent of my home speakers. With that said, which headphones deliver unrivaled natural sound, bass, and the like relative to its competitors. I can't purchase anything too capable for my laptop, as i don't plan on buying the amps or whatever to utilize its full potential. I just want the perfect headphones for a laptop user who isn't necessarily an audiophile, but wants the a great listening experience when playing music. As you can see, amazingly impressive headphones such as the senheisser HD650 are both out of my radar, and league. Soundcard: IDT high definition audio codec To facilitate my own research, can someone also explain the significance of getting the right headphone "ohms" for the device at which you plan to use your headphones? I hear that for laptops in particular, headphones having 32 ohms or less are ideal for the very same reason mentioned in the beginning(too powerful for my set up?). Is it also true that BOSE noice reduction headphones are overrated and crap in comparison to their competitors(in terms of sound quality)? I hear that such technologies sacrifice sound quality so i may take them out of consideration. I'm stricly going for headphones that sound really good.
