I'm thinking about buying a pair of JVC's RX900 headphones off Amazon.
Originally I wanted a pair of the RX700s, but they've been discontinued and are near impossible to find online for a good price--at the moment, the RX900s are only $10 more and seem to be worth it (because of the softer leather ear pads and other improvements).
From my research, the RX700s are (rather definitively) considered "closed," and have minimal--if any--sound leakage.
The RX900s, however, are considered "semi-open."
Because I'll be using these in a college dorm room environment, or in the library, I'd like as little sound leakage as possible.
- What's the leakage like on the RX900s?
- How does it compare to that of the RX700s?
- If the leakage is minimal, is the greater sound stage worth it?
