Closed alternative to Sennheiser HD598

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at a new set of headphones to buy and the Sennheiser HD598 ticked pretty much all of my boxes except for that they are open. They seemed perfect to use as a headset for gaming and for music. The one thing is that I do a lot of public traveling on the bus or train almost every weekday and I don't want any outside noises leaking in or any music leaking out.

So I was wondering if anyone knows of a good alternative for them that are closed and over-ear? Main thing I'm looking for is comfort so I can wear them for hours without needing to take a break from them. I mostly listen to only EDM (trance, house, chill, dnb etc) if it helps.

Thanks in advance.

these including the senn are not "portable" headphones, but you still can use them as portables.
