I just discovered this site recently and was hoping that you could help me upgrade from my current, mediocre headphones. I'm looking for a pair of closed headphones with minimal leakage to use (unamped) with my laptop and mp3 player. I would prefer to not spend more than $80, but definitely not more than $100. I don't need amazing sound quality, but I'd just like it to suit my needs. Comfort is very important to me, as I would like to wear them for several hours a day. I wear glasses as well, so I was guessing that on the ear would be better? I also have a smaller head as well. If they looked nice/clean, that would be a plus too. But comfort and sound-leakage are my highest concerns.
So far, I've been looking at a several models, including Sennheiser's HD228, PX200-ii, and even HD428, JVC HA-S900, Beyerdynamic DT235, Denon AH-D1001, MEElec HT-21, Creative HQ-1600, and Audio Technica ATH-SJ11/55 (which I'd really like to hear more about if anyone knows anything about them, not much information out there at all; I like the look of the SJ11 but I'm not sure how much better sounding the SJ55's are or how comfortable either model is).
I listen to a wide variety of genres, and I'm open to pretty much any suggestions you all have that fits in my price range.
