Headphones With NO Leakage

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm still on my search for the perfect headphone. I want an on-ear (portable) style that sounds very good, but doesn't leak AT ALL.

 

I work in a quiet office, and I don't want to annoy my coworkers.

 

So far, I've auditioned dozens of headphones. I've found several that sound good, and even went ahead and bought a pair of TMA1s (Studio) and a pair of HD25s.

 

The TMAs may as well be speakers - they leak horrible. The HD25s are decent - at low volumes they don't really leak at all. But I often listen loud, and they aren't really going to cut it - they still leak too much.

 

I already have / don't want IEMs.

 

I'm looking in the $200-$400 range. I suppose over-ear would be ok, if that's the only option.

 

Does anyone know of anything? How do the M80s fair in this regard?

Sounds interesting, any personal experience? I tried the DT770, felt very very open. I wasn't extremely impressed by the sound, but I could probably get used to it...

AirBuds (www.air-buds.com) are made with an awesome foam that keeps all sound IN. they run about 40$ they also just sell the foam tips which are better than the comply tips IMHO

I just pulled out my M80s to test the isolation and at loud volumes they don't isolate completely.  I don't think there are headphones that aren't going to leak at least a bit at high volumes, unless they are chock full of damping material.

So please, rather than spamming the forum with the same post in every thread about cheap IEMs, why don't you think of something more interesting to contribute?
