Been silently searching for a while but haven't found an ideal answer so figured I would post my question here :-)
I am looking for a set of good headphones with little to no sound leakage. I have a set of Audio Technica ATH M50s but with the volume at 30% on my tablet my roommate can hear them from the other couch.
Any recommendations? I like the sound quality... but my roommate is a light sleeper plus I want to use my headphones at work and my coworker right behind me (3' distance) prefers no sound as her way to concentrate.
- budget is $225 tops
- listen to: rock, pop, hip hop, R&B, rap, country, and sometimes classical and jazz
- enjoy bass... very much but don't want "muddy" bass
- don't care if headphones have good isolation or not
- must have little to no sound leakage
- usually use with a HP Elite Book Pro at 50% volume (am getting a portable amp soon to use with work laptop so this will change)
- use with Nexus 7 tablet at 70% volume at home (nexus doesn't put out much volume without distortion, another reason I'm getting a portable amp)
I would appreciate any and all recommendations or links to reviews!
