So I want to buy some new in-ear headphones for about 30-60€ and the Philips SHE9800 came to my mind. The only problem I have with them is that they supposedly leak sound, and being a social person and mainly using them for commuting that would be a no-go. So, how bad is the sound leakage?

 

Also. if they do leak sound badly, what are the alternatives? I'm looking for something not too fancy-looking, with a good. balanced sound for music like Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Beatles but also some more instrumental stuff. I do not care so much about how they keep the sound from the outside world away, but as I said, leaking sound would be suboptimal. What is also very importans is that they are sturdy and don't break easily, especially the cable.

 

Thanks
