Full size headphones typically feature large earcup sizes and a circumaural design; this means they fully enclose the ear, resulting in less pressure on the ears and comfort for hours of use. Full size headphones also achieve better sound quality, making them the ideal choice for hi-fi systems, home cinema setups and gaming.
There are two types of full size headphones; closed back and open back. Closed back earcups isolate external sound with an enclosed chamber. An open design allows for sound to escape from the headphones and external noises to interfere with your music, but have more natural sound. Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic and Audeze all produce full size headphones that are seen to be some of the best on the market.
