Hey guys, I am new to the forum and the whole audiophile scene. I just purchased a pair of MS1 after reading up on some of the reviews. I was so focused on the emphasis placed on the sound quality that I sort of forgot that they were open air headphones. And what I was looking to buy were the noise reduction type for my ipod to wear in public without having the person next to me intrude on what I was listening to. I sort of looked around on these forum for a solution and I found a thread that suggested placing the cans into an ear muff protector. Found here: Grado SR-80 repair fix - Armed Assault Info Forums
The question I had was would it drastically affect the sound quality of the headphone if I chose this option. It is, after all, intended to be used in an open setting. Has anyone tried doing something similar and what were the results?

You'll be better off spending some money for a cheap pair of IEM and use the MS-1 at home. MS-1 doesn't sound good in closed form.
