How much do HD 598 / DT 990 Pro / q701 bleed?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking to upgrade to a quality pair of headphones with a price range of $150-225, and I have been looking at the AKG q701, Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro, and the Sennheiser HD598. I will mainly be wearing these in my home (which is why open headphones would be fine). I am coming from a pair of Bose AE2. (No longer have them I sold them)

 

Sadly, I will not be home 100% of the time with these headphones. for id say 5-10% of the time I will be using these at the library. I probably wont be blasting my music, but I would like to still have music playing. I just want one pair of headphones.

 

How much do these individual headphones bleed? Or should I just look at closed headphones

 

If you have any suggestions on what headphones to look at rather than these 3, please let me know!

 

I want headphones that have a good soundstage. I play counter strike competitively and I would like to know where the footsteps are coming from :) The type of music that I listen to is rock / electronic. I am not much of a bass head and I do not want thundering bass.

i think you'll be fine if you can find a nice spot in the library away from everyone else.  ive seen people get away with blasting their iems, so i dont see why you couldnt get away with listening to open hps at moderate levels

if you really, absolutely need isolation, go for a closed headphone.  i really enjoy my k550 in fps games, especially cs 1.6.  pretty much the only thing i do in pubs now is prefire and wall.  it really pisses people off, lol

Equally much. They all are open headphones, and depending on your listening volume will radiate the same amount of sound outwards as they do into your ears.
