Hey everybody!

Wonder if anyone can help. Basically, Ive heard that the Grado SR 60 and Sennheiser hd series are by far the best phones to get for a reasonable sum of money. As Im looking to change from sennheiser cx300 in-ear to some proper headphones, I want them!

The only thing is, due to their openess, are they rendered useless outdoors? As really, Im giong to be using them 85% outdoors- like walking down the street, around college etc. Maybe on the train if pos. Now if closed heaphones would be way better then I guess I should get them, although im drawn to the idea of getting these phones that everyone is raving about...

Definite no no? Would closed be better? And if so, which are the best closed type?
cheers

I would not recommend open headphones for use in noisy outdoor environment. A noisy train/bus/street etc. kind of ruins it... Closed headphones are better, but in my experience far from perfect as well.

So what are the best closed headphones for around the same price as the two i mentioned??? Do you reckon.

SR 60 would be no no, here is why:
- super crappy build
- separated cables for each speaker
- questionable comfort for long use

I could not count all the sites that rave about the Grado SR 60.
For a closed design, the Sennheiser 280 Pro gets great reviews, but it is more expensive.

Senn 280 are in another league in my humble opinion (built-wise i mean)
