The 6xx headphones are a open back design, which means they will not isolate sound (block sounds from coming in or out). Yes they will leak sound and yes you will be able to hear the outside world. Now I will say they are not going to be as open as a hifiman edition xx for example, while the 6xx will block a little bit more compared to something as open as the hifiman.

They do bleed but not as much as I'd thought. Though not really something you'd bring outside because they take a dac to drive as otherwise its pretty low on a phone dac.

Less so than some say. IMO not enough to disturb someone 5 feet away, and I've done vocals with them without a huge issue. Yes, a bit of bleed...closed back better for recording, but so comfortable whilst doing bgvs.
