Looking for office-friendly HQ 'phones

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey all --

 

I currently have a pair of Denon AH-D7000s that I use at work -- except despite the closed-back everyone else can hear them. 

 

Any suggestions on comparable quality:price that I might be able to seek in a trade?

 

Thanks!

chap at work has the d5000's - they do leak. 

 

I use my Sennheiser hd558's at low volume. 

 

no-one could hear my Sennheiser HD280's unless I really unleashed the fury, MDR-V6's (Sony) work nicely in the environment... 

anything in the closed monitoring(ish) range should be fine. 

+ you're not going to break them carrying them round in a backpack.

Hmm -- which do you think have the least leakage and will play nicely with my FiiO E9 amp? :)

The Sig PRO, K550 and T5P and Mad Dog (with Stax pads) will isolate very well. All are very efficient headphones, so your E9 is fine.

 

Very best,

AKG-K271/272S. Hard to beat combination of isolation and SQ, they greatly benefit from amp though, not sure what your office setup is.

I'd highly recommend the Signature Pro. High quality sound, very isolating, and a nice portable package. They are my office phones, and they are brilliant.
