Also known as circumaural headphones, closed-back headphones, earcup headphones, full-size headphones, they have ear cups that enclose the entire ears. Comfortable to wear for a long period of time as the diaphragm is far from the ear padding.
Thanks to this design the sound stage is marvelous, creating space for sound to reflect naturally. These types of headphones come in two categories-closed back headphones and open back headphones.
Closed back over-ear headphone
