All open except the d7100. I imagine some disappointment, going from hd800 to d7100, they don't have the same reputation as d7000.

I want the same  ( somewhat close) quality as the 800s but not so much soundstage and leakage. Thanks :)

 

There's two closed headphones I like thus far well three.

Easy! As long as you're serious about the "no regard for price" part. http://www.wooaudio.com/headphones/stax/sr4070.html Grab those guys and a good amp, and you're set. Ugly is subjective, and I think a lot of folks might find them ugly. But screw those people, wear Stax with pride and don't let other people define you.
