Closed-ear library use/walking around headphones, <$500 - Page 2

post #16 of 17

If you dont care about style, Mad Dog from Mrspeaker or ZMF Fostex T50RP modded is a good value headphone. And with the remaining money, you can buy a portable amp like the C5D from JDS lab.

I would suggest getting IEMs too.  This way you don't have to worry about disturbing anyone.
