Looking for a recommedation for over-ear headphones

Buying these for my mother. Her requirements are:

- Must be comfortable; comfort is more important than audio quality.
- Over-ear only; non-tiring/hurting
- Good sound, but non-audiophile requirement.
- No/low bass; she's intolerant to bass.
- Price premium ok as long as there's a reason for it, particularly in the comfort category.
- Wireless preferred over wired if all of the above requirements met.

I have the Logitech G933's. Wireless and 7.1. Can't recommend them enough and you can turn down/off bass.

Been using the Sennheiser HD598 for a month now, no complaints at all. I would wait for it to go on sale if you're intending to purchase it.

Ended up getting the Sennheiser HD 206 because the negative reviews of "weak bass" appealed to her. She ended up loving them.

How big are OP's mother's ears? Does she currently find any pair of headphones to be comfortable?

She's super skinny; her ears are small. That headset looks like a helmet on her. And it's her first headset ever.
