Grados are really nice sounding headphones. My office is too quiet to wear open headphones though. If the AC stops, you can hear what I'm listening to from pretty far away.

I decided against them, like you said, the leakage was just TOO much. They are like loud speakers, I don't know why people buy those to be honest. I would get annoyed at the leakage even at home.

I got some sennheiser HD 518's instead.

Beats studios need battery for noise cancellation and that's it. It won't work without batteries.

People need to stop buying beats, go to an audio speciality store and listen to head phones there. Almost everyone I listened to was as good or better than Beats headphones while being cheaper.

You know, I'm not the biggest fan of Beats (they're severely overpriced), and I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole as a producer, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. For most people, they want the loudly-EQ'd lows to blast when they're listening to music and they enjoy it that way. It's the same reason people throw multiple subs in their cars; they enjoy it and want to make a statement.

But we all have our little 'statements' in life; some people want to drive an Accord or Camry whereas car fanatics will tell them to get a used car or something like a Subaru/Volkswagen GTR.

It's whatever. If someone truly enjoys them, then let them have their joys in life while moving on with yours. Sometimes there isn't a 'right' choice.

What price range are you looking at? What kind of headphones (circumaural, in-ear, supraaural [look these up if you don't know what they are])?

What kind of music as well?

I don't like Beats either. They are inferior cans for the money. But if aesthetics can get a new generation into headphones, I'm all for it.

honestly $5 - $10, if that's possible. Just as basic as possible but also reliable and durable.

I dont like headphones anymore... it is so irritating for the top of the head after a while and it messes up my hair up there anyways leaving that headphone print on top of my head, looking retarded lol... for a brother that might not be a problem unless you had a fro.. ? :P Arching the phones backwards like this makes it even worse as now the weight is on the ears and they now hurt like hell after a while....

In-Ear was the solution... then i found these and fell in LOVE, absolutely fantastic sound, beats by dr Dre:



Overpriced a bit, but worth it and saved alot of ear/head pain
