Like I think I'd use the cans mostly in my dorm room, but I do have a roommate and I don't want to disturb him. It's really quiet in our room so I'd be more concerned with leaking out rather than in. So in a quiet environment how much do you think I'd disturb someone about 10 feet behind me, if I have the volume fairly low. He usually has headphones on, but if he doesn't I wouldn't want to bother his studying.
It's not that loud. If he has headphones on he shouldn't be able to hear them.
