If you prefer an open-back design for a more natural soundstage, which can create an immersive experience for music and TV, the AKG K712 Pro headphones would be a suitable choice, though they are not ideal for noisy environments due to poor noise isolation. Consider the Moondrop Blessing 3 earbuds if you prioritize portability and a closed design, which offers better noise isolation and the versatility of detachable cables. Both have excellent build and sound quality, but neither is well-suited for exercise, and they don't support wireless connectivity. Neither is optimized for gaming or calls due to their poor mic quality. If battery life is a concern, it's irrelevant here as both require wired use. The AKG K712 Pro is recommended if you have a dedicated amplifier for optimal sound quality. Give Feedback

"AKG has created a mini-masterpiece in my opinion. I enjoy this headphone a great deal and it will become my go-to reference headphone for the time being. She is slick, sexy, well-balanced, and crazy comfortable."

"The Moondrop Blessing 3 has excellent imaging performance, especially for the price. Pair that with its neutral tonality with slight elevations towards both ends of the frequency response, and the Blessing 3 technically proficient set of IEMs that are also enjoyable to listen to every day."
