Hey guys! I'm pretty tempted to jump on this, but my only hesitation is regarding sound leakage. Was hoping to use these at my office job and my HD700's at home. I've read a couple people say this leaks just as bad as an open back and others not nearly as bad/acceptable enough for the work place. Any last minute thoughts?
I've read it leaks IN more than out a lot. that being said I think any headphone closed or open if the volume is at moderate levels shouldnt pose much a problem ever unless you want to blast them lol
I used to own the HD700s, these leak a lot less sound for sure. There will be some leakage, but its really quite a low level, doubt it would be bothersome/noticeable unless there's someone sat literally next to you.
They leak significantly less than a fully open headphone but there is some leakage. I think they're fine for an office unless your office is like a library or you sit particularly close to others.
Very true. I think I'm just accustomed to listening to my HD700's at night when everything else in the house is silent. So it always seems like I'm blasting them. Haha
Thanks for the insight! How would you compare the sound of these to the HD700's?
The 700s are more detailed to me, but there is that potential treble heat (depending on how sensitive your ears are). The TH-X00s has a much more satisfying bass though, and the sound signature in general is more engaging, where the 700 can sound too clean/sterile.
Cool. Sounds like the TH-X00 is kind of a counterpart to the 700's. Never had a problem with the treble myself, but it's definitely a clean sounding headphone. Gonna go throw my wallet at this drop now. Just too bad it'll be a while until I hear them!
