In the end, it depends upon where you’re going to use the headphones, and your own person listening preferences. But.. . for the most part. . . . if you’re listening in your own home, then you could use either/or. If you’re using them on a subway. . .or in an office environment. . . . then you’ll want the “closed-back” for sure.
These headphones are VERY comfortable. I’ve used them for several days. . . several hours each day. . . without a problem. I like that there is a nice long cable too. . . . BUT. . . it comes with a 6.3mm jack only. You’ll probably either need. . . or at least want. . . .an adapter for 3.5mm. I believe that Sennheiser may also offer a 3.5mm cable, as the cable on these headphones is removable. . . but this version of these headphones only comes with the 6.3mm cable/jack.
