I need headphones that won't leak out sound
I currently have behringer headphones that I use for monitoring. The problem is they don't trap the sound very well and leak into the mix when I'm recording. I want a good pair for strictly recording with. Something that will trap the sound and not show up on the mix. Something that would have a tight fit. Anyone have a suggestion?
Just what the clients say - 9 out of 10 will choose the AKG or Sony. I don't argue with clients
I have a pair of Vic Firth headphones that seem to work well for tracking -- especially with drummers; they shouldn't leak. On the other hand, I've never had an issue with the 'phones leaking onto the vox track. Your vocalists must really like their headphone mix up LOUD.
I second the Vic Firth headphones. If you want to keep your tracks clean, this is a good option. When a click track bled into a solo vocal section I decided to find something that wouldn't bleed.
Never had too much bleed from my AKG 270's. They have switch on them, such that if they all not on your head, no sound comes out.

I've used HD280s and they work great. Some clients feel like their brains are being squeezed out by the clamps and they can be a little heavy on the low end too so sometimes will use Sony MDR-7506. Easier on the ears and less boom.

Boomy? There's more low end in my mobile phone.
The bass goes really deep, but it's reduced in volume.
