They'll probably get a lot of wear and tear like my bose triports, wich survived for two years. How will these hold up? I guess I'm between the A900 and HD595, or open vs closed. Again, just how bad is leakage on 595s. Example: Halfway volume on ipod, how well could others hear?
Or maybe this is a better way to put it: my wife has bionic ears. When I had the Grados, I couldn't listen to them without annoying her unless I was in a separate room with the door shut, or on a separate floor of the house. She could hear them from more than twenty feet away. With the 595s, she's only annoyed if I'm in the same room with her.
