Non-Leaking Alternative to Grado SR60i

    Hi everyone! I recently bought a pair of Grado SR60i's and absolutely LOVE them!
     
    The part I love the most about them is the soundstage, absolutely phenomenal! Currently, I got the 60's hooked up to my iPod Classic via L9 Cable to a FiiO E11 and the sound is just amazing.
     
    Unfortunately, I use them mainly in the office, which as you can imagine, causes a bit of a problem since they leak so much.
     
    Hence, I start my search for an alternative set of cans. I know that a big part of the sound I get from the SR60's is due to the open air design... But, are there any cans out there that can even come close the SR60 sound without the leakage?
     
    Any help would be awesome! TIA [​IMG]

    Hello and welcome! 
     
    Do you have a price limit?

    Hi jack and thanks for the reply! I was hoping to find something in the "Under $500" category...

    Sennheiser HD-25 I II.
    Fast sounding, really nice bass kick, but soundstage is not as good as Grado (you can't have everything)
     
    On a few words, a smooth sounding alternative.
     
    Another that come to mind are the Momentum.

    Yeah, the HD25-1 II seems to be my top choice right now. I keep coming across mentions of the Amperiors though.
    Any comments on those?
