My apologies if this gets asked incessantly, but I don't know what keywords to search for
I am looking for some headphones to replace the POS earbuds that came with my sansa MP3 player and also to use on my computer for music/gaming.
Recently I learned that the type of music is a relevant factor (very new to this audiophile business). I listen to Dream Theater, Ayreon, and other progressive rock/metal, sourced from my computer (FLAC).
I like the look of Grados but am concerned about leakage when in public. I borrowed some ATH A700 from my brother, obviously they sound fantastic compared to garbage earbuds, but I am trying to stay impartial when judging brands. Are these still a good choice or are there better/newer options?
I don't intend to get an amp at this point.
