$200-$250 closed back cans for Rock music and Gaming

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a pair of closed-back headphones that don't leak much sound, and also play guitar-centric (rock, punk, metal, lo-fi music) decently. Gaming is preferably the highest priority of what I'm looking for in a pair of headphones, so I can sacrifice a little as long as the soundstage is decent enough to pick out things around me. 

 

Price can go a little over $250, but I'm trying to stay around the range of 200 - 250. The cans that I'm looking at right now are the Ultrasone HFI-780, AKG k550, and Beyerdynamic  DT770. 

 

Thanks!

What sources exactly are you plugging the headphones into?

There are a few used AKG k550s on eBay, might get them for under $150.
