What are the differences between Open and Closed back headphones?

While there are many different types of headphones currently on sale, they generally fall under two separate categories - the Open Back and the Closed Back.

On the former, such as an AKG K99 Semi Open, the back of each earpiece is open, which means sound is not isolated and can escape. While this makes them less suitable for a studio environment - in which critical listening is strongly required - they do offer an open and clear sound that can be listened to for extended periods.

The Closed Back, however, can be tiring if it used continuously for a long time, as the back of its earpieces are closed and the sound is isolated. This can be very useful for people such as DJs, as they have a solid bass response and are conducive to monitoring in a loud environment such as a nightclub. Alternatively, the isolated sound of devices such as Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Headphones could be good for studio engineers and musicians, as they do not want the sound to leak out.
