You are going to have a very hard time finding over ear headphones that are considered "portable". I think in the headphone world the ATH-M50 will be your best bet. I wouldn't call them portable. If you'd consider on the ear then something like Koss PortaPros or Sennheiser PX100 or PX100-II, which are actually considered portable. If you want REAL portability then get IEMs. Something like the MeElectronics M6, Maximo iM-590, or Klipsch S4. Use the search feature, you will find plenty of reviews.

All 3 models fit your criteria - reproduce good music, isolation, comfort & price range.
Personally, I prefer the HD 448 for its nice, balanced sound.Return HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
