Closed better than Open

Do you protest? Well, let me assure you, it's a special situation. One involving the acoustics of headphones. ;)

My Sennheiser HD 590 provide a truly satisfactory sound experience. They're also comfortable to wear, and I had really nothing to complain. But other people had, since these headphones are (acoustically) open. So, the entire neighborhood has to listen to your favorites ...

To avoid any further irritations, ;) I aquired an AKG K272, closed headphones of some reputation. The sound is less transparent, less "airy" when compared to the HD 590, but it also has a more solid bass. Altogether, I like that sound as much as the previous one. And I tell you: everybody else here is outright ecstatic about the complete lack of parasitic acoustic disturbances. ;)
