I need help with choosing headphones.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I need help choosing headphones with certain specifications for $50 or less. The headphones need to be at least decent with music(gaming is a plus) but most importantly they need to not leak sound. My computer is currently in my bedroom and my girlfriend has pretty sensitive hearing and likes quite when she reads. I want to be able to play music and games without bothering her.

So far I have found the JVC HA-RX700, AKG K77 and Sennheiser HD428 but I don't know if those are what I am looking for or not or if they are better ones.

Look HERE OP

 

Monoprice headphones are cheap and readily available. There was a big thing about them about a week ago. Look up Monoprice here for the review

How are they in terms of leakage?

Minimal. At low volumes, nothing. Higher volumes might have a very small amount.

 

With some different pads they probably will be more comfy too.

Where could I get better pads and how is the cup size? I have a problem with things pressing on my ears.

Look up Keanex's review. He puts on Shure 840 pads I think. It solves what you hate

Are there ones that I wouldn't have to mod first to not be bother by them ans still meet my specifications?
