Hey everybody, I am looking to buy a good new pair of cans.
What I am looking for:
Over-ear, circumaural is preferred (the style of the Grado sr125i's work too, but not sure how much they leak)
Just the leakage requirement rules out all the Grados and the Sennheisers, unfortunately. The SRH840s and the HM5s are solid, but they're more on the neutral side, so the bass might not be quite strong enough. However, the HM5s are very comfortable (or so I've heard) if that's a bigger priority. For a more fun sound, you could look into the HFI780s, M50s, Pro900s, or the D2000s.
