    I thought the 553s were closed back, did you mean the 702s?
    I just went and had a look and they are actually the 550s. I thought they were open back evidently I was wrong.

    audio technica m50x, the most superior headphones known to man
    Also use the Audio Technica ATH M50x. These are the ones tbh (in that price range), they make Beats sound like something you found in the bottom of a cereal box.

    My daily workhorses are Noble Audio Savant IEMs, and a pair of Bowers & Wilkins P7s for when I feel like using over-ears. Back home I have a pair of Sennheiser HD600s and a pair of Sennheiser RS220, which I dearly miss both of :moon:

    Sennheiser HD600s. Hoping that my dad gives me his pair of HD800s as an A-level completion gift
    That would be a hell of a gift :ahee: If you're asking for those then you may as well ask for the updated HD800 S model, they're a little less fatiguing :yep:

    Can anyone recommend some good quality earphones with good bass and minimal sound leakage?
    The apple ones are pure trash. The sound leakage is ridiculous.
    Budget?

    Probably my all time favourite pair of headphones from a price-performance standpoint and still the benchmark I use for my ideal tonality. I sorta wish I hadn't sold mine!

    Why did you sell them?

    I still have mine but they don't get used since I got the ATH-M50x. I had no idea so many posters also had these either. AR_95 e aí rapaz

    Why did you sell them?
    I had about nine pairs of headphones at the time and it was getting ridiculous, so I opted to sell a load and condense my collection down to an open-back pair with source gear and a single pair of closed-backs for portable use- the P7s. I love the HD25s, but the P7s offer a similar tonal balance with better fidelity and significantly better comfort. But if I only had £150 to spend on a single pair of headphones, it would be the HD25s.

    I damage my earphones quite quickly (i.e one ear not working) so I usually go for a cheaper, but decent type. I don't particularly like in ear earphones or big headphones so this is almost perfect for me Good sound quality for the price too

    Spend an extra £9 and get the Hifiman RE400 from Amazon, otherwise go onto eBay and go for any pair of VSonic headphones at your ideal price point. None of them will have overly prominent bass but rather it will be well proportioned within the overall sound signature and if you want it to be more emphasised than that then you can adjust the EQ in your phone/laptop and they will handle it better than a cheap, overly bassy pair of headphones would- cheap headphones with overblown bass is a recipe for crappy sound.

    If minimal spending and maximum bass are your priorities, get the JVC Xtreme Xplosives. Their reputation as brilliant cheap headphones is somewhat exaggerated, but for a pair of inexpensive bass cannons they do a decent job.
