Open vs Closed headphones in matter of music genres and the health of the listener

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I read lot of threads these days but I didn`t find the answers of some essential questions I have:

 

1.Is better for the health to use open headphones due to less sound impact to the ears?

 

2.Are open back headphones suitable only for gaming and watching movies?

 

3.Are there open back headphones with nice punch bass(relatively affordable)?

 

4.Are the open back phones suitable for rock/classic music?

To me open always sound better, but not always practical.

If you can get away with it use open.

What's the source and budget?

The budget is lower,and I discuss it in other thread.

My point is are they really suitable for music lowers or just for gamers?

Do they deliver more natural and uncoloured sound than the closed ones.

Open is better for music, why would games be different, but it all depends

on the model.

Have you heard Grado SR60s?

 

and there are quite a few other threads here!
