I also am seeking guidance. I'm going to college, so I need a portable umamped with same sound sig as DT880 with a bit more bass punch and subbass extension. Needs to look good and be comfortable (no sweating). Hip-hop/Rnb @192kbps.
AKG Tiesto K167. Is the a900x portable and doesn't require an amp?
Do you know anyone who's down to mod the cup surface of a K167? I hate the plastic. Leather, metal, hell, even wood would work. Digging the alu circumference though.
Where can I get a used D2000 for under 350? I will mod the cups and cable.
Hey, I'm interested in the BT. Seems like it beats out all of its competition: MM550 is extremely bulky just like the Zik and UE9000 (too bassy), AKG needs to work on SQ, Klipsch is too bassy, and we don't need to talk about Beats. Are these comfortable and light? Do they provide nice isolation? Are they not too bassy?
Thanks so much miceblue. Unfortunately, I feel like quitting on this set. I had heard that it was comparable to the M50s in sound quality, comfort, and isolation. But if that's not so AND if the bass is already more than the Executives, build quality only a little better than the dangerously flimsy Studios, AND midrange is more recessed than some Beats, I feel like giving up. For those of you reading this post in my situation, check out the Tiesto K167. They don't look...
Thanks, guys. How about compared to the P5 and the Beats at the Apple Stores? I'd say those have way too much bass. You can't even hear the mids (Beats). And this is coming from a teen who listens to hip-hop and rnb.
Hey guys, how does the UE6000 compare to M50? I hear that the 6000's bass is like a Beat's bass. If so, I quit. Else... I hear isolation isn't all that great, but still acceptable. Is that true? Is it good for hip-hop/rnb/soul? And the AKG Tiestos seem like a direct competitor for these. 
Is $167 a good price? or can I get it cheaper?   http://www.ebay.com/itm/AKG-K167-TIESTO-CLOSED-BACK-DJ-STUDIO-HEADPHONES-/130820467978?_trksid=p5197.m1997&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D16%26meid%3D4190153759681780328%26pid%3D100016%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D390508827913%26
