Need some opinions on some cans for the office.
My office (not a cubicle) is fairly noise isolated. The only time I hear my office neighbors is when they are talking to someone at moderate voice levels...so noise transmission between offices isn't a real nuisance. What is a nuisance though is when I've tried my DT770s, Turbines, and PRO700s at work, they all isolate noise too much to the point that I miss phone calls because I can't hear the phone ring. I'm also worried that I might miss important announcements over the PA system. So this has me leaning towards picking up a set of open cans for the office.
I have no experience with open cans, and am wondering if they are open enough for me to hear the phone but not too open that they sound like a boom box to my office neighbors? I'm a bass head and have been very happy with my DT770s. I'm considering picking up the DT990s as I've read where people say they have a similar sound signature to the DT770s (not so much with the DT880s).
What do you guys think? Will open cans be too open?
