closed headphones with open headphones sound ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

i was wondering if there is a headphone out there that is closed, but sounded like an open can ?

I haven't found or heard of any, and it's really not a surprise

since laws of physics are 'in the way'. :-)

 

Pistonic distortion & other issues.

 

But of course some closed phones sound more open than others,

and a couple I recommend for that are the AKG 550, the

Audio Technica ATH A900, and its recent upgrade the ATH A900X.

Denon D5000, ATH-W5000, but they both do not isolate that well.

 

Also Sony MDR-1R sound surprisingly open and spacious for its size

The Ultrasone 900 has the most open sound of any closed back headphone I've tried. Also has fantastic bass punch.

Sony MDR-1R. One of the reasons why I even decided to buy these. And SQ did not disappoint either :)

The Stax 4070, and the Ultrasones can produce a nice open soundstage.

K550 sounds pretty opened for closed hp.
