Hello,

I'm currently using the Sennheiser HD 518 but I would like to get an upgrade.

It shouldn't be more than like 450€.
I already own a fiio e10k DAC + AMP combo.

Can someone recommend me a noticeable upgrade?

One thing I don't like about mine is that other people hear everything, which really breaches my privacy, so I turn the volume down.
But I heard that closed headphones will have worse audio quality and are uncomfortable to wear for a longer amount of time.

I have tried those Skullcandy crushers from a friend for example and they were uncomfortable for me when wearing for a longer amount of time... just as a reference.

If someone knows great closed headphones in that price range without these problems, that would be great.

I listen to edm, not dubstep, more melodical, like future bass, also with vocals. And sometimes j-pop too. Only for fun, nothing professional.
Someone already recommended me the Shure srh1540, but I heard they were boring and mostly for professionals.

Thanks a lot!
