    Ive recently purchased a set of Senn CX 300 - II, i really liked the sound but as being an In Ear set, i just cant get used to the In Ear model.
    So im looking for a On Ear model which isolates the sound.

    I had a few models in mind like the Grado SR80 or SR60. Im not sure if the ipod sounds will be goot on them, not enough power?
    Or the Audio Technica ATH-ES7 which is hard to find in belgium :/

    Any advice on these or other models would be very appriciated

    Well grados, being open, are all horrible for sound isolation. Lots of sound comes in from outside, lots of sound goes out.

    Well I know next month the new ES10s are coming out, and while those are a ways out of your price range it MIGHT mean the ES7s will get a price drop. no guarantees of course.

    I dont find my grados to leak in much sound while I was wearing them on the street - but they will leak out a lot of sound

    - I even thought the sound that came outside of the cans were louder then what i got on my ears.
