I'm currently using the Sennheiser IE8 at work and while I like them, I've decided I want some closed headphones for the office and just use the IE8 for traveling/on the go. I'll list the criteria of what I want and would appreciate any suggestions that fit. Not too concerned about price.
- I need something that doesn't leak much. It is a pretty quiet work environment with some coworkers fairly close. I don't want to disturb anyone if I decide to rock out a bit.
- I have a bit bigger than average ears and want some headphones that give them some room. I've had the V900HD's before and they were slightly too tight on the ears.
- I'd prefer not to have to power them with an amp, but would consider it if there is something that would be the perfect fit.
As for the sound, I'm pretty happy with the IE8's. The upper end is about right for my taste. I'm looking for something at least as detailed as they are. I listen to all genres of music, but rock the most. Some of the ones I've been looking at are the Ultrasone Signature Pro, Sony Z1000/3520, and the Shure 940's, Thank you for any help in determining what would work best for me.
