Normally I listen to music all day ranging from george winston to pearl jam on my computer speakers. At night, I also sometimes play FPS and other types of games on the computer. Temporarily myself, and my family, have moved into a smaller apartment and I wanted to get headphones to not only drown out some of the noise while I work, but also still be able to use my computer (music and gaming) without disturbing others.
I have read that open headphones have sound leakage. How extreme is this leakage? If I am in a small room surrounded by a bedroom with an open door and a bedroom with a closed door, are the occupants going to be able to hear what I am doing?
From what I have read open headphones have a better soundstage, which would probably be better for the gaming, but would love some advice from you experts?
I went into best buy today to listen to some open headphones, but the stuff they had wasn't that great and its so noisy in there I could not tell how bad the leakage was.
Thanks in advance.
