    They can hear it very well, semi open still leak a lot, I would stick to closed cans if your using any public transport.
  2. tino96
    So if I use closed back instead nobody will hear me?
    Then I just think i'll have to choose the best ones that will actually stay on my head.
    Any other suggestions apart form the hp100s?
    Do you think Vmoda m100s would be good? 
    What about Beyerdynamic/Vmoda customs?
    Any other ones from different brands possibly? I am trying to make my range as wide as possible so that I would be able to try some of them in shops here.

    In my opinion the HP100 beats the beyerdynamic DT770 and it comes with a great carry case.
  4. ostewart
    HP100 have an overall slightly warm laid back sound, with great detail and soundstage. It works will with all genres too.
  5. ostewart
    Some impressions of the vmoda M100, also sound warm but with slightly recessed mids and rolled of highs. All depends on taste.

    Yes open is bad for travel - you want a closed headphone. Sorry if I didn't explain that well enough. :xf_eek:

    Thanks... so I guess then I can consider the K550/K267, HP100, and?

    Have you looked at the ATH-a900x?
    I have the a900x and K550. I liked the a900x better. I thought it had a bigger soundstage and better clarity. It does have less bass compared to the K550 and a little weird when you wear it because of the wings.
    I will be returning my K550 and keep the a900x. 
    I am not an audiophile or an expert so the above are just my opinion. Take it with a grain of salt. =)

    I would love to try the A900X's out, man...
    I just don't know where to try them, that's why I need a broad range of noise isolating/cancelling headphones.
    Does anyone know of other good headphones and of heaphones which isolate you from outside noise without a noise cancelling system?

    I am really peculiar about ones that have a good sound quality  too, because I don't want to pay just for the noise cancelling, I would prefer it to be passive and have a nice sound clarity.

    Just try and pick some now instead of looking for more. Make up your mind, check out the suggestions.

    Just a question... these don't require amps do they?

    HP100 doesnt require an amp, but sounds better with one
  14. tino96
    All of them, do they need an amp to sound good...  like Ultrasone Pro 900 which absolutely need an amp?
    Just to see, can you guys suggest me a good amp for approximately <$30 ?
    How are the  Fiio E5 and the Fiio E6?
    And if I need a 3.5 mm to 3.5mm cable to connect from the phone to the amplifier, does it HAVE to be a Fiio one or will any 3.5 to 3.5 cable work?
  15. obobskivich
    Pro900 "absolutely" need an amp? Really - where are you getting this stuff from?
