Hi folks, thinking of getting some headphones for home use, budget around £100 - £150. I listen to mainly guitar based rock, harmonica and piano based blues, and random pop type stuff.
I live above work, so sometimes listening to music through the speakers during the daytime is not the best idea I've ever had. I spend a bit of time at the computer, which has an Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard, and would also like to take advantage of the headphone amp in my CDQ. I'm leaning towards closed back 'phones so that I can use them at my girlfriends whilst she watches TV/we're not talking without disturbing her.
So far I've been attracted to the Audio Technica ATH-M50 and the Shure SRH 840, and have also considered the Grado SR80i, but they would leak too much sound I think.
Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
