I've seen many posts here and elsewhere about HD600 leakage, but nothing specific enough for me to make a decision yet about whether to disqualify them based on that. If I've overlooked something, I apologize.
I'm considering buying the HD600 for use in my office. It will be amped (with what I'm not sure, but that's a topic for another thread). It's a private office with a door that can be closed. The front wall and door is all glass. I have a neighbor on one side. The walls seem decently thick, but I'm not entirely sure.
How bad is the leakage?
If my door is open, will people down the hall or a neighboring office hear it?
If my door is closed, will anyone else hear it? There's a pool table about 25 ft outside my office. If I close the door, I can no longer hear it, or it's very muffled.
Is there anything you can compare it to, volume-wise?
I think I may listen to volume at moderate-to-loud levels, but I'm not sure if that will change. I currently have Bose Quietcomfort 2s which are completely closed and isolated, and I have to really turn up the soundcard volume to get much decent sound from them. So that might change with better phones.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
