Hi,

I currently have Senn HD600 which I like it a lot.
But I am unable to use them many a times (office , baby sleeping etc) since they are open back and leak sound.

I am keen to know which closed back headphone will be similar in sound to HD600 or even AKG 702 (found it a bit more neutral than HD600) and yet be comfortable as well as portable ?

Would like your suggestions here.
I see one good option which is Senn HD380 pro which is portable as well.
( recommended in some older posts here )
Planning to buy Fiio E07K USB DAC+Amp as well.

Thanks in advance,
Hifisound

IME Working pros learn how to translate results from what they have at hand to some kind of conceptual ideal. If they can use the headphones they are most familiar with, then that gives the best results, but if they have a range of known alternatives at hand, then they can get the job done.

On a given day I wander around between ATH M50s, HD 280s, HD 380s, Superlux 688Bs, and a heavily-equalized pair of RS-170s. In the field I mostly find HD 280s mainly because I induced the relevant parties to use them. MDR 7506 remain the most commonly used in professional contexts and I have a pair of them as well.


Hmm, I guess then working on music needn't have the same requirements as enjoying it smile.gif, unless its all snake oil above some of the models you mentioned.

Btw you mentioned HD380s. Did you have a chance to compare then with HD600 ? Are they similar in sound ?
HD600, due to open design, will be comfortable for sure but have usage restrictions like I mentioned in the first post.
