Full size Headphones are large, traditional headphones that sit around the ear, offering great sound quality and comfort. In our opinion, life is simply too short to not have a pair (or so!) of really great full size headphones.
Full-size Headphones are called circumaural, meaning "around the ear." Full size Headphones are also known as over-ear headphones, with large earcups that encircle the entire ear. Full size headphones may be open, closed (sealed), noise-canceling, or wireless. Some full size headphones are easy to drive and can reach satisfactory volume levels with clear acoustic performance with tablets, phones, or other portable players, but many require a headphone amp to reach their full potential. Almost all full size headphones will benefit to some extent from a headphone amp. Nearly all professional, reference-level high end headphones should be used with a dedicated headphone amp.
