    Recomend Headphones

    Looking for some decent headphones, currently using a pair of ipod headphones to listen to music on my laptop. People in the office keep telling me to "Turn it down" because they can hear what Im listening to.

    So i'd quite like some 'over ear' headphones rather than 'in-ear', but dont want to look like someone who's saying look at my nice new huge earphones.

    So small form factor would be cool...Any recommendations?

    You could go for the "in-ear" type. I have just bought myself some of the Full Metal Jacket ones as seen on this site. They are not particularly cheap however.

    I got a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones which are great but a bit pricey! I found a brand new pair on eBay for a fraction of the RRP. I love em...

    As per attached image they leak a lot of audio / sound which was what the asker did not want.

    I am not sure if the sony ones were any better - that was just a general comment on what I use

    The HP25SP have very good sound isolation but these come pretty close at less than half the cost. Smaller too:
