I really like the red and black color scheme but will hold out for the blue/teal version for practical reasons. I'm a guy who spends a lot of time on trains and will feel less self-conscious wearing blue and black in public.

This isn't really something you should wear for portable use since it's open back and leaks a lot of sound. Not sure how the train commute situation is like for you, but over here, people are very sensitive to music blasting from headphones.

I've been a studio musician for decades and am as familiar with leakage as I am with headphones after a lifetime of professional use. During my commute to Westchester virtually every morning, I can hear the background arrangements of the songs to which people listen on earbuds, so I know what you mean. However, I don't think I'd bother anyone with these headphones. I set my volumes before entering trains and never increase them due to the possibility of tinnitus and the user's natural tendency to blow out their eardrums with treble at high volumes in an effort to hear bass frequencies over the low hum of the train. But I do appreciate your input. New York is an unusually noisy place and many people turn up their sources because they're too young to take physical limitations seriously (I know I didn't as a kid) or don't make their living with their ears and so aren't sensitive to the repercussions of hearing loss until it's too late.
