I need help choosing headphones with certain specifications for $50 or less. The headphones need to be at least decent with music(gaming is a plus) but most importantly they need to not leak sound. My computer is currently in my bedroom and my girlfriend has pretty sensitive hearing and likes quite when she reads. I want to be able to play music and games without bothering her.

So far I have found the JVC HA-RX700, AKG K77 and Sennheiser HD428 but I don't know if those are what I am looking for or not or if they are better ones.

TRY Iit out, but for 50$ i don't think you find a good closed headphone. i used the Sennheiser HD 380 pro, you can look by Shure, they have well prized HP, Regards

If my girlfriend was in my bedroom the last thing I would be doing is playing on my computer. :o 

That being said, for $50, the senns and AKG are good, I'd stay away from JVC. If you need a mic then you'd have to get a separate one though. I personally use a Sony MDR-V900, but they were close to $300 when I got them as a birthday present, uh, 16 years ago?

I've had a Sony MDR-V6 also, they were pretty good for the price, although a bit higher price-wise ($65 or so). I'd find a place that lets you listen to the headphones so you can see which one you like the best.
