Broke my Klipsch One headphones at the weekend and needed a replacement. These aren't listed as a Best Buy on What Hi-Fi but won the 2016 award with 5 stars. The K72s are a Best Buy because they were cheaper at the time, but both are currently the same price on Amazon at the moment.

Lowest price they've ever been according to Camel3.

Hopefully they sound good!

What does closed back mean?

Closed are better for louder environments or to keep people from hearing what you're listening to. They lack soundstage in comparison but generally have better bass by design.

Open are the opposite here, they aren't good for loud environments as there's barely any isolation, and if you have someone in the room with you, they would most likely hear everything at good volumes. They usually have good soundstage and worse bass, by design.

There are semi-open or semi-closed but lets not get into that.

It's not a perfect rundown of the pro's and con's but it's the general differences. There are caveats but Google will answer those :D

It means they are effectively sealed to outside noise. So if you are listening in public these will be better than open back, plus everyone else won't have to suffer your choice of music ;)

Whether the back side of the speaker is sealed. Open leaks sound to everyone around but gives better quality. Closed doesn't leak so is better for offices and whatnot, in fact I'm wearing closed ones in the office now.

*edit* These or my current Sennheiser HD 215s?

just to add to that closed back can become quite warm, I have the AKG k550 and they make my ears and head sweat.

Yes. With open you can get away with velour pads for comfort and breathability. You don't want to do that with closed usually as the isolation is effected.

Bought these recently for not much more as they appeared best in class for the money, been very please thus far. Decent clarity and no distortion at high volumes.

It is indeed, but Tunes were as famous, if not more so, for 'funny voice' ads.

I have a pair, and I like them well enough. Previously had a pair of Sennheiser HD 202s - I wouldn't say they differ much in terms of sound quality or comfort. The K92's feel sturdier though.

The K92s are quite big mind, and with the gold bits, they're not very subtle. I only use mine at home, but maybe something to bear in mind in case you don't want to stand out if you're wearing them out and about...

Get the htc 10 or the lg v series phones and they would drive high impedance cans with ease.

the cable is not detachable unfortunately.

I got a pair of AKG Y50's with 115 db SPL/V @32 Ohms which sound good but they don't go very loud at all with my phone (has also been mentioned in reviews)

That's really strange with those specs. Thanks though.

Do you think the HTC One M9 could drive them sufficiently?

Don't get me wrong, they do sound good for the price (£50 at Superfi) but the volume does need to be cranked up to 80 - 90 % . May stop me going deaf I suppose

Had them over 5 years and they are still going strong, ridiculously well made and they sound great

These aren't as silent as other closed back headphones. Mine leak a fair amount of sound. Highly recommended though, great sound quality. I use mine in the home and the AKG 451s out and about.
#36
I wouldn't say closed have better base, rather they have more and it can sometimes be a little overblown. TBH unless you have a reason to go with closed, I'd always pick open back. They sound much more natural.
#37
Heat from me, I'd definitely be buying a pair if they were a little smaller and more portable. Desperately in need of a new pair before I go on holiday.

For anyone, like me, that was wondering (as it's not the easiest thing to find in the listing) - these come with a 3.5mm jack on the cable and a quarter-inch adaptor in the box.
