    They even have a 1/8" stereo tip with a 1/4" adapter. I listen to these on my work PC. Further reason my coworkers think I am mad.

    Honestly, I don't know. I have only used these. Now I just might have to get a pair to see if your theory holds. You bastard.

    open headphones have more neutral bass and overall sound, this is why people prefer open headphones for monitoring. if you monitor with closed ones that have alot of bass for example and adjust the sound with them, you will end up adjusting the sound with too low bass. maybe they have managed to build a closed headphones with neutral sound tho, but i have heard all pros say that you should use open headphones when monitoring because of this more neutral sound on open ones.

    akg makes some good low price (semi)open headphones for studio monitoring. I got akg k141 studio(they are discontinued tho) headphones and the sound is great for monitoring(i dont use them for that tho) and i like the neutral sound on them when listening music. its not that they have low bass, but the bass isnt exaggerated, but if the song has loud bass, they can play it loud and detailed. also i find open headphones more comfortable. they costed 86€ like two years ago.

    That's interesting, and makes sense!

    I will check out a pair of open headphones. Closed headphones can get uncomfortable. I wear my baseball cap underneath them if I am going to be wearing them for a long period of time.

    Thanks for the info, dude!
