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.

They only require a DAC if you are using digital output from your source. You probably mean they may require an amp due the the impedance (300Ω).

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.

I got the headphones and within one week the cord kinked, (I'll admit possible cat nibble) and now dead. Is it a limited lifetime warranty and/or is it a fixable problem?

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
