Does anyone have any experience with any of these headphones and can give me a hand in choosing a pair?

Audio-Technica ATH-A700
Audio-Technica ATH-AD700
Shure SRH240
Shure SRH440
Shure SRH840
Sennheiser HD-555
Sennheiser HD-595

As you can see, I haven't decided on closed or open headphones yet, so any advice on that subject would be helpful as well

The closed ones are always the better option.
"You have brains in your head,
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose,
You're on your own,
And you know what you know,
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."

Why does everyone love the closed headphones? Everywhere I've read, sound quality is much better in open ones and the only disadvantage is sound-leakage.

Don't listen to anyone that says closed headphones are somehow "better" than open headphones. Closed will have stronger bass impact, while open will have stronger treble, detail, and MUCH wider soundstage. Personally, I think open gives a more accurate presentation.


That being said, I would go with the AD700. The A700 is garbage in comparison, the Shures aren't bad (and might even be better if you're looking for something with more bass) but can't touch the AD700 in soundstage and detail, and while the Sennheisers aren't bad they're no where near some of Sennheiser's more expensive products.

SkullCandies are comparable to Bugeras. They sound alright - but for how long?


And it's seeming like the AD700's are the way to go so far.
