Does such a thing exist?
I'm in the market for something in the $100-250 range. I'd be using it almost exclusively for rock music. Gaming and movies are not concerns.
I recently went through a rather long and drawn-out hunt for speakers, and ultimately concluded that Klipsch best suit my tastes, by far. Forward sound and sparkly highs that are not rolled off or smoothed out are my thing. I know not what others speak of when using terms like "too bright" and "fatiguing." Also, I'm far from a bass-head, and am more likely to be annoyed than impressed by a bloated or strongly-emphasized low-end.
So Grado is the go-to brand for this style, I gather. Problem is, I need minimal to no leakage in the environment they'll be used in. Closed-back is a requirement, and preferably among the less leaky of closed-backs, at that. Comfort is a secondary concern, as well.
Unfortunately, the research I've done so far seems to indicate that closed-backs often tend toward a sound roughly opposite what I'm describing. Am I asking for the moon here, or are there any decent recommendations in my price range?
