Looking for some recommendations for computer audio (youtube, streaming music, nothing special) headphones, need on-ear on the small side that won't leak sound too badly (not looking for total isolation as I need to take them on & off often, but don't want to disturb others around me) so just avoiding "open" headphones, and IEM's--to be more specific as to why: its not fast enough to take them (IEM's) out delicately and place them back in my ear canal, faster to just move headphone by band/cup when I answer phone. Currently using Sennheiser HD 201's, and while they aren't horrible at $30, figured a nicer budget will make quite a difference. Not really interested in anything that needs an amp, just looking at non-amp options...
I'm also looking for a USB sound card/device that I can plug into my computer that won't require installing drivers/admin rights, thinking budget of $50 (or less) just to avoid computer interference...using a Syba USB sound device, and playback is *so* loud on it, I have to keep my Windows sound volume at 1-5, 5 on the very loud side.
Was looking at Creative Aurana Live! (which are around the ear, but seemed decent for use) and Koss Porta Pros (which seem like a nice fit size-wise, but would leak sound). Any thoughts and recommendations appreciated, thanks.
