So i've been looking to get a new pair of office cans. I'm extremely curious about the planar driver, and would really like to try these out. I will be using these in an office environment, where I have people sitting about 4-5 feet away. I know these are open-back headphones so their isolation can't be superb. Will these leak a noticeable enough amount of sound? Our office environment isn't quiet by any means, I just dont want to add to it if I don't have to. Also, since we have a noisy environment, how good are these at keeping out external sounds? We will sometimes have music playing ambiently in the office, would I be able to drown it out with these? I will be driving these from a iPhone or Macbook to begin with, with the hopes of buying a USB DAC for the Macbook eventually.
Also, since i've already made this thread, one more question. Will these play the following bands/types of music well? Phish (lots of this), The Doors, Pink Floyd, Black Keys, Pretty Lights. I listen to lots of different types of music, but its most important they work for jam bands and classic rock.
