What portable headphones qualify for this position?
SQ is the first priority, price is the last.

They can call it whatever they want, and they can say whatever they want, but i have been here long enough to tell them, that this is not a portable headphone at all, to qualify for portable use size matters, a full size headphone will never be portable in my book...

To me anything bigger than a Portapros, PX, etc...is a phone for home use...

BTW, Portapros here...

Yuin G2A or G1A. You may also buy headband to convert them from clip-ons to supraaural.

They don't exist. Another man honey can be another's poison.

^ Sure. But let's come up with some contenders.

It's going to be between ESW10 and HD25, I think. HD25 wins on isolation, and judging by my ESW9, ESW10 would win on SQ. And visual aesthetics. OK, so aesthetics is kind of besides the point for SQ, but isolation isn't, so if you're listening in a noisy area HD25 might beat ESW10 overall.
