I have been thinking about getting an open back pair of headphones but i am not sure if i would like them. I don't know anyone who has a pair so testing them etc is not an option. I also don't have any shops near me that have high quality headphones to test. I would use them indoors and i wouldn't be using them outside. The one thing that is making me think twice is if somebody is talking or starts talking to me it would ruin the whole listening experience. Would an open back pair of headphones like the Sennheiser HD650 actually block external noise at a high volume? If you think that a closed headphone would be better in my position could you please list some of the best in the price range of £200 - £300?
I currently use an Asus Xonar Essence STX and will be adding the Matrix M-Stage at some point..
I am looking for a pair of headphones that are really detailed, good clarity and nice tidy bass.
I mainly listen to Electronic Dance music and various genre's within that.
Thanks in advance
