About to pick up the Logitech UE 6000. How bad is the leakage on it? Are they any other...

I just can't use headphones that leak too much.  Anyone got any other comments on em?

Closed headphones don't leak. UE6000: closed back headphones. Hope it helps

I can talk only about the Bose and I wouldn't recommend it because it only works with batteries, however the sound is quite agreable and really comfortable.

I heard great things about the NC on Bose. However the sound is questionable.

Thanks. i will keep my eyes on the UE.

Some people are completely against Bose because of their marketing strategy, its a good noise cancelling headphone, the sound is affected by the NC system but is not a bad sound, it is expensive for what it is though.

I believe Bose has the best noise cancellation circuitry on the market. I've tried them numerous times (at the Bose store, in a noisy Best Buy) and they definitely do an excellent job of blocking noise. Having said that, they also hurt my ears; as in the frequency waves generated by the NC circuit seems to give me a headache. I would recommend you to try listening to them without music playing.

 

I have the UE6000 and can easily say the NC circuitry is nowhere near the Bose. Heck I've owned Monster Beats for a few weeks for fun and those cancel out noise better than the UEs. The UEs just cancels out SOME standing noise and that's about it. They also require quite a bit of power, even with the NC on. For example, I was on a plane and after having my laptop cranked to the max and the NC on (which also turns on the amplifier), I still couldn't quite make out some of the quieter passages of my movie. I had to switch to my Triple-fi's and then had to turn down the volume by a lot. One benefit to the UE6000 is that it works without the NC/amp circuit turned on. Downside is that you lose some bass and mid range impact (see next paragraph).

 

And re. that bump in impact, it's actually a little much for my tastes. And although it sounds perfectly good without it (i.e. NC/amp turned off), I find it's not as satisfying. Would've been absolutely perfect if they just dialed it down a little but for $199, I feel no other closed can can touch the UE6000s in that price range.
