What you think of headphones as right now. They have a solid back to them. People can't hear what you're listening to, and your music is isolated from outside noise. Open-backed headphones have a vented or open back, which, while leaking sound, allows for the driver to swing more freely, creating more natural reproduction, a larger soundstage, and better imaging.
