For the past 5-6 months or so I've been using Maxell HP-1000's for my music listening on the bus/subway and at work. Now today, I got a complaint that surrounding co-workers are disturbed by my music even though I am using headphones. So I guess they are pretty bad at directing the sound only to my ears. So I need new ones. There are 4 different types of headphones that I know: 1. The earbuds that you put in your ears like earplugs. 2. "Walkman-Style" headphones that go over the head, resting the speakers on the ears. 3. "Street-Style" headphnoes that go behind the head. 4. the "Big Bertha" that totally covers the ears. Types 1 and 3 are out of the question! I tryed some of those and I hate that! Does anyone know any brand/model that will not disturb surrounding people? My requirement are: - Silent to surrounding people is the most important factor, confort is 2nd. - Although "Type-4" (See above) are not really ideal for bus/subway/computer music, I do not mind big ones. If they keep the sound in and have good bass, it's fine. - Those "Volume Control" in the middle of the cord are more annoying than useful, so I want a set that doesn't have that. - About 30$cdn... But willing to go up to 50$cdn if needed. - Should have resonable bass, I know considering the size of the typical headphone driver aAnd the price I'm willing to pay, these can't compete with SVS but something that says "15hz-20khz" in the specs should do. - Cord should be long enough to be in a "Laptop-Style" bag that I carry with me in my hands that gets put on the floor when I'm holding on to hand rails in the subway. I find using those "Purse-Like" carrying case around my neck annoying. My current set is 5ft long and it's a little too short (Have to use one of those carry-cases). - Sound quality is not that much a factor, it's for listening to a walkman (And eventually a portable MP3/OGG Player) in the bus/subway and listening to 96kbps OGGs on the computer at work. Anyone have any recommended brand/models? Thanks.
