    Looking for portable closed cans that sounds like open ones

    Well I went with the Ath-M50s in the end. They just came in the mail and even without burn-in, they sound great. They're surprisingly similar to my 500+ hour HD555s, but with more bass. Very noticeable on songs with dragging bass lines, less so with drums. Sound stage, detail, and highs are all...

    Sennheiser HD448 ($100) vs ATH-A700 ($110)

    Shure SRH-440, AT ATH-M50, and Denon D1001 are also commonly recommended for closed phones in that price range.

    Sennheiser HD485 vs Sennheiser HD555

    Some people have tried turning their HD555s into pseudo closed cans by filling the housing with blue tac. Not my cup of tea, but supposedly the results aren't bad. I'm sure "HD555 mod" will come up with threads about it and more.

    Sennheiser HD485 vs Sennheiser HD555

    Never heard the HD485, but I do enjoy my HD555s very much. However for metal and dance, you may be better served by a closed back headphone that offers more bass. I wouldn't say the bass is lacking on the HD5xx series, but it is very tight and focused. Dance/house/electronica sounds fine through...

    Looking for portable closed cans that sounds like open ones

    I've been searching for portable headphones (no IEMs or buds) that will replicate the sound out of my Sennheisers (HD555, PX100) without leaking large volumes of sound. - Closed - Isolation not so important as just not leaking sound. - Exceptional comfort is a must. I have medium sized...

    I'm one of those who could never do the treadmill thing. Having scenery fly by is so much more interesting, even if you're running in circles around a track.

    What is the coolest jeans out there?

    Does anyone care to explain to me what qualities to look for in jeans that tell them apart? They all look basically the same to me, for men anyway. I've been rocking $30 Old Navy jeans for years and have never felt the need to buy $70-90 pairs.

    What do you call this

    I call it confused. Serious: Sounds like you do small and detailed motions with your left and large, athletic movements with your right. Is the hand gripper perfectly symmetrical?

    HD555 vs AD700...

    The clamp on the HD555s is a little tight at first, but opens up nicely. Sound is tight to start with and gets tighter Overall though, the majority of people tend to prefer the sound of the AD700s. I personally went with the Sennheiser because it looks way better, is more compact, and...
