Hello,
I'm looking for some new closed over the ear headphones... Budget is 100-150€. I've been reading around, tried a few headphones in shops and ended up thinking that maybe the a beyerdynamic would be a good choice: Custom One Pro, Custom Studio, DT 770 (80 Ohm)?

Since the customs I cannot try in a shop, I ordered the One Pro and the Studio. Burned them in for a couple of days, tried them at home and now at the office.
Well, the conclusion, after a few hours of listening in the (decently loud) office is that, at least from an isolation point of view, the Custom cannot be considered closed headphones. More like semi-closed. The outside noise is leaking in, especially with the bass ports open.
Have you guys noticed something similar?
Thanks!
