    Grado Sound in a Closed Can?

    I currently own a pair of modded Grado SR80i's. I love the sound they produce, but I have a couple of problems with them. They leak a ton, and they're really uncomfortable. So I am looking for a pair of closed cans that will have a similar sound, but without the subdued bass of an unmodded...

    The search continues

    Ok last time I left off i returned the Grado SR80i because of comfort and sound leakage.  I returned the ATHM50s because of comfort.  Now I am returning the K550 because of fit.  I love the sound of these cans but i cant get them to fit snug on my head for the life of me.  I even tried bending...
