Default Non-leaking headphones

Hello!

I love listening to loud music but at work I sit close to other people, so my problem is finding a pair of headphones with great sound that wont leak any sound.

Music will be DI radio through a Nuforce uDAC2. I currently have a pair of Creative Aurvana Live, which are pretty nice, and they leak very little sound, but I feel they are a bit pitchy and doesn't sound nearly as good as my senn HD650 I have at home. However, I want that kinda sound!

So, I want headphones that don't leak any sound, has almost the same quality sound as HD650 and that will work good with a Nuforce uDAC2. I like the bass to vibrate in my ears, so if the headphones also amp that up abit that would be awsome.

Any suggestions? Price range is anything up to 400$.

Heard a lot of great things about those headphones. So you are saying they leak very little sound?

Those are very good, I have a pair, myself. They sound great, and they are basically indestructible.

Koss Plugs. Just put piece of scotch tape over the holes on the sides. $16 at Koss.com. sound nice, full blown sub bass, loud and proud. you can mix, produce in them too, they are very accurate. better than any other studio headphones I have tried costing over $200.

Ended up with a pair of Sennheiser - HD 25-1 II. They are awsome! The sound is perfect and they leak next to nothing even on high volumes. Easy and comfortable to swap to one ear as well if you need to hear something. Can have them on all day without any issues.

Perfect work headphones!
