I think for little leakage he would need overear cups like dt 770, obviously all ohm versions leak the same, 80 ohm ver. has more bass than 32 ohm ver. but without an amp 80 ohm won't be loud enough, Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro could be considered as well.
I'm buying a present for my friend. He likes Kpop, Mainstream western pop and dubstep, and I was wondering how these performed for such music? Also he needs a can with little to no leakage because he listens to his music quite loud but wants to listen in a library and at night while his room mates are asleep. How is the leakage on these compared to say other cans like the Pro 80ohms, Sony MDR-1R and Vmoda M100?
I won't be waiting for the 32 ohm regular, can get the LE for 150 dollars like new from a person locally.
