Hi all, I'm new to the forums, and today started my first foray into choosing a set of "mid-fi" or better cans. I've had a chance to try out a set of Grado SR225i's and am quite impressed with the sound but I'm leaning towards better isolation. Seems like the K550's are the best choice in my price range (<$300) for a closed can and the Grado's seem to be the best fit for my preferred genre's - rock, alt/indie rock, some jazz and electronica. Any input? Am I really sacrificing that much by choosing a closed can? Any info is appreciated!
