    I purchased a pair of iGrados from HiFi Headphones a few years ago and like them a lot for my commute to work - walking, so sound leakage isn’t too much of an issue. Would the SR60 offer any specific advantages/disadvantages for this application? I’m using an iPhone as the music player.

    thanks!

    The SR60 is open-back, so you know what that means. For me using a headphone outdoors, if it's very quiet the SR60 would be OK, but when noisy I'd need some isolation, plus a little more bass.

    The other thing about the SR60 is the earpads are fairly stiff and it has significant clamping force.
