Hi everyone, a year ago I bought a pair of Sennheiser HD 598CS and they're wonderful. Currently i use them with my Huawei P9 Lite. I'm going to buy a LG V30 this Christmas so I would like to upgrade my headphones because i am curious about its dac can play hi res audio. I would like a pair of over-ear headphones and closed back like my current ones because I want to be isolated from outer space. I don't really care about ANC, I prioritize sound quality. I listen mainly pop, alternative, rock and classic. My budget is about 300. Thanks in advance! (Sorry for my english )

Beyerdynamic dt770 might suit you.

1.Do you recommend me the 80-Ohm studio version?(which i read that has better bass)
2. I read that there is some sound leakage, how is it?
Soundmagic HP151 headphones, they are like an improved DT770.

They seem great, thank you for the advice! Do you think that in terms of audio quality is it worth upgrading?
More like a different sound, the HD598CS would have a more neutral sound, where as the HD151 have a more fiesta sound.
It might help if you would state what kind of improvement your looking for, from your current HD598CS headphones?

Less sound leakage and more detailed. I am a newbie in this world so for now i don't really know anything very specific. So are you saying that Hp 151 have a "funnier" sound?

Your already using closed headphones (HD598CS), so I'm not sure how to have even less leakage.
The HP151 have a stronger bass/treble, then the HD598 series of headphone.
You might consider holding off on buy other headphone until you had a chance to try the LG V30 with your current headphones.

There is always the chance the new smartphone comes with a more detail oriented sounding DAC chip.
