Headphones and Hearing Loss


My father has significant hearing loss (he's 94). He has always loved music but hasn't been listening much these days.

Could anyone recommend the best headphones for such a person?

Any thought greatly appreciated!
I agree with Kijanki. Sennheisers are so nice to listen too and so comfortable. I only own AKG K702's and would NOT recommend them for your father. I do however have a son with the Sennheiser 650 I believe to be the model. They are fantastic.
I own the AKG 701 the Sennheiser HD 700 and one that may be just the ticket the Bayerdynamic DT 770 pro, which are available in several impedances. They are an over the ear and closed back model. The 770s are not their top model, you may want to read about a few of your potential choices on Hedfi.org
Zd542 wondered: "Why not get custom fit, inner ear headphones?"

Probably because he already has hearing aids in his ears and doesn't want to hassle with removing them to listen to music. The Sennheiser Momentum recommendation sounds (pun intended) like a good one...

I hadn't thought of that. I know very little about hearing aids, so another question. Would using a traditional headphone interfere with hearing aids? They would be so close together.
