m5 and ex700,would be considered the least analytical so id advise either of those for fun.

id always advise the se530 as they are superb and warm sounding but who wants to have two models from one manufacturer that are fairly similar in production methods, go for something different is my advice. im sure the se530 with impress but you may be a little more satisfied with a set of phones that is simply put...different

I was quite underwhelmed by M5's recessed lower midrange.

I wouldn't pick the Sonys if my main usage is for commutting.

I haven't heard any Shures yet.

I guess the yet to be released UM3 is worth looking into.

i brought my physician friends se-530 to sony store then i compare both (ipod30+boa)... se-530 just surpass ex700 on mids but not that much... and who says ex700 does have sibilance? if you consider ex700 to have this flaw, how much more um2, tf10? i like the crisp highs, tight and pumpy bass (though se-530 also have this quality but ex700 bass is more natural for me) and most of all soundstage which is significantly better in my ears with ex700...

good to know!
I have EX700 coming too and I found my SE530s have less seperation than my Victor FX500. It's really a shame that triple driver can't compete with single dynamic driver in this department but I still love my SE530 though.
