Default KSC 75 vs. Sony MDR-Q22LP

I am looking for ear clips with decent sound, low sound leakage and COMFORT. All things being equal, I want comfort. I am deciding between the KSC 75's and the Sony MDR-Q22LP. I've seen lot positive reviews of the Koss but I've seen a lot people wearing the Sony's who say they love them.

Open to other suggestions too. I want over-the-ear not in-the-ear.

Sound Quality:





Tie (It really depends on the shape of your ear, as I personally prefer the comfort of Koss, but some prefer Sony's)

So I guess it comes down to how important Leakage and sound quality, the sound of the Koss's is a really gem for the price but they leak a bit (but not nearly as much as my Semi-Open AKG K240S full cans that I use is public often and havent had any complaints yet.

the sony q22 had brillaint sound quality when i used them with my sony D-ne1 atrac mp3 player, however i found at times i ahd a lot of leakage because i had small ears and so the hooks on the Q22 didnt fit so that the headphones lay flat, unless of course i bent them a litlle lol

I ended up buying both - the Sony's sounded great, very rich, but I found them very uncomfortable, they hurt my years. Kept the Koss, so far so good.
