Open cans is those with grills one...offer little isolation but sound better than closed

closed headphone is those normal headphone you see outside

circumaural is cover the whole ear but is quite big

supraaural is smaller and sit on the ear

for your budget you can get either the Alessandro MS1 or Grado SR80

both around 160 bucks and is open..best used in a quiet enviroment
I am well aware of all the brands available in this industry since I'm in this trade myself, but saying that open cans sound better than closed is very misleading for the readers here.

And closed headphones are not the normal headphones wore outdoors since Sennheiser PX-100, AKG K24p, Grado's iGrado, Koss portapro are open design.

look at the price difference before u compare bro. EP630 is very good for it performance. other brands at its price u get crap.

maybe u should give the new aurvana in-ear a try. Good quality without the high price.

We open from 11.30am to 9.30pm daily and yes, we have a range of headphones and earphones for our customers to try. For Jaben Network, you should always call before heading down, better safe than sorry.
