Ok, thanks. In my current situation I felt like closed would be better (college dorm, when I am at home I am also sitting right next to someone as well), would an open set of headphones be a big enough leap that I should consider them more? When I was looking for headphones closed seemed like the way to go when I was intentionally trying to make a distinction, is this not the case and I should branch out more?
Ideally I am trying to make my decision by the 24th, as that is when Guitar Center's deal expires ($30 off $199+) but if I need to look around some more I can wait as well.
Though right now I have a pair of $30 Creative Fatalities, so I think anything is going to be a fairly large improvement.
Community living usually dictates closed cans.
