Which Headphones?

Hi all,

I'm in the market for a new pair of headphones, nothing to expensive but something that stops sound leaking out (stop me getting grief from the missus) has good bass, miss and highs. Basically good for music production. Any recommendations out there? Apologies if this should be in the general forum instead of music.

They seem a good price with good reviews, what's the leakage like?

Hard to say objectively, but I just put on a house/trance track and put the headphones to a comfortable listening level, and with them now hanging about 3 feet away from my head, I can just barely hear the sound.

Sony MDR-7506. $90 on Amazon. Used in almost every studio I've been in. The awesome clarity is a little tiring after long sessions (3+ hours), but you can take a break and recovery is quick. Replaceable pads.
