Over Ear headphones, also known as circumaural, full size or around-the-ear headphones - are designed to sit fully around your ear, generally creating the most comfortable listening experience. Typically over ear headphones are the largest and heaviest, but produce the best quality sound and the most expansive soundstage. Preferred by audiophiles, studio technicians and music lovers alike; over ear headphones are used for all applications!
Brands such as Sennheiser, AKG, Shure, Audeze, Denon and Beyerdynamic, specialize in these types of over ear headphones.
