I use my headphones for everything; Music, Gaming and Video (anime). I only use them at my computer or with my 3DS, so I don't need them to have any special features.
I'm interested in open ear headphones, but I've never used them, so I'm a bit afraid of how much my background noise would effect my listening experience. The fans in my computer are a bit noisy, so I'm not sure if high volume would drown that out, or if the noise would interfere with my immersion during silent points in music/videos.
I have always used closed ear headphones, so I'm open to suggestions from any side.
Extra info on my audio experience:
I just sent back my Fostex TH-X00 Headphones due to durability issues. They were the best headphones I've ever had, so I really disappointed that the headphones were attached to the headband so cheaply that both headphones popped off after a year of use. Luckily Massdrop gave me a full refund <3.
I also own pair of SRH1450, but they make a high pitched white noise under a specific frequency every so often in my right ear, which is driving me insane (let me know if you know a possible fix to this issue!).
