What are the best headphones for working?

Is it bad I still use $30 ear buds? I'm talking about when you need to get shit done & don't want to be interrupted.

    This is what I've used at work for years. The newest version is even better, you can walk around the office without taking them off. πŸ˜€ I see people walking around with these on all the time in SF. But, I leave these at my desk & use a pair of earbuds for when walking around outside / gym / not-working. Noise cancelling feels dangerous to me when walking in a city.

    Work really well but don't give off that "I don't want to talk to you" vibe you may be going for.

    Active noise cancellation is a powerful thing, man. It's seriously life-changing. These drown out almost everything, and you can put your hand over the outside of the headphone temporarily to hear if someone's talking to you.

    Retails for 99$ at the moment on amazon, worth the money for sure. https://www.amazon.com/Sennheise...

    $160~ - These things are ungodly soft and comfortable. Very easy to wear for hours and forget you're wearing them. Great for immersive sound but not being completely isolated. And it's Sennheiser, so the sound is very, very good.

    I've been using these at work and they're surprisingly good!

    If on a budget - couldn't go better for $25. Sound like $75 overears, depending on the comparison could sound like $200 headphones πŸ˜‰ If you have $$$ I'd check out my next recommendation (Sennheisers)

    BeatsX are like the lovechild of Beats (or Bose) and Air Pods. Amazing sound quality, wireless, long-lasting battery and the ability to (mostly) tune out the world. Plus, at half the price of the Bose QC35, it's a lot easier to hit "add to cart".
