not exactly sure if this is what you mean by this, but assuming you are hearing the things like the bass drum or snare “next to the headphones” and then losing them as you put them on. Those instrument’s sounds are much lower in frequency (as in “pitch” like a deeper voice vs a high voice) and low frequencies are bigger, so it is easier for them to go around or through objects such as the case on your headphones. but then once you put them on, you can now hear all of the other instruments as well, and while the lower frequency instruments are still there and also louder, they are being “masked” (basically overpowered) by the everything else. hope that helps!
