Are semi-open headphones still usable in a work environment? I was thinking about buying this for work but wondering if I can or must they be closed.
I have a pair of these. You can hear people talk to you provide you can hear over the music. Other people wont hear you blasting Wayne unless you have it so loud its dangerous to listen to. The sound is extremely clear and balanced. You can go into a guitar center and try them on too.
The bleed of open headphones more affects recording because it causes feedback and introduces noise. These are best suited to playing games imo and are plenty clear enough to have music playing and still focus on the game. Presumably this will trsnslate to office work.
These regularlo go down to around $70 at guitar center without a coupon or anything. This might be a different model however so do your research but they look idéntica to mine just bluhd themed.
If you have money to spend, Audio-Technica m30 or whatever are closed back if you want to shut out exterior noise.
