The highest I saw was 3.8k by Iron Dreamer.  I saw several that went b/w 2.8 to 3.5K depending on condition.   I have the L3000 and they don't leak very much.  Build quality is one of the best, if not the best ever.  Sound pretty great when you want to rock out.

This is a very good suggestion. Thanks.

 

Can you tell me if it leak sound to the outside ? I really need an headphone that will not disturb my co-workers.

 

So far, I have 3 possibilities for non-leaking headphone: Ultrasone Ed8, Ultrasone Sig Pro and may be the JVC DX1000...  any one compared them for audiophile usage & confort ? Any other suggestion ?

beyerdynamic t5p are supposed to be pretty good. hard to find a good closed headphone, especially in the high-end.

They leak definitely less than the Denons, but I also enjoy the UE 8 to be honest with you, and they don't leak that much sound also. The thing is, the JVC DX1000 will look really ridiculous on your head at work!

lol!

I would also say that, based on my woodies (I haven't got a JVC) - they're not the most durable of headphones. The wood can pit, crack, chip, etc if you bang it around (we're talking actions that would hardly scratch plastic or metal in some cases). redface.gif

I think Ultrasone and Beyerdynamic are probably where you're gonna have to look if IEMs aren't acceptable, and if woodies (Denon, Fostex, Audio-Technica, and JVC) are out of the question due to durability (and I think if you're using these at work, the bigger problem will be transport damage, not usage damage, so a hard-case would probably cover you there).

is there any reason you're opposed to in-ear monitors?  theyre all I use at work, theyre a lot less hassle to transport, and you can use them out of your phone/dap when you commute without having to take off your hat

^Seriously.  OP, just get a pair of JH16s and be done with it.

I have à pair of westone ES3x. Custom IEM. They are very good but ... Not confortable enough for loooong listening cession. Is it normal or should I do a new hear imprint ?

You could wait for Audeze to release their closed-back orthos. The prototypes sounded pretty damn good.
