I'm looking for a set of gaming headphones and currently leaning towards the Ad 700s with a Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card. I've read a lot about the AD's "leaking sound" compared to the ATH's due to their open configuration.
My question is how much sound gets out? I'd like the better sound stage with the AD's but if it's going to result in my Fiance constantly asking me to turn down my gaming volume because she can hear the gunshots it's definately not worth it. (My computer and our couch are ~ 5 feet from eachother).
If anyone who has AD's could pass on some information about just how far their sound spreads when it's at a reasonable volume I'd appreciate it. Looking at the photos of them they look like they still enclose your ears so it seems like it wouldn't be that much...?
