I need some advice for finding good portable headphones. I was going to ask this in the other subforum but it seems like IEMs are all they talk about over there now, and I've noticed a lot of you have and talk about portables too, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out.
Build: I just want them to be portable and comfortable. I don't really care that much about isolation, but the headphones shouldn't leak sound.
Music: Almost everything. Rock, pop, electronic, acoustic, classical, R&B, jazz, and hip-hop.
Sound: I just like a sound that is smooth, clear, full, natural, and easy on the ears.
Things I like in particular are tight visceral bass (thinking of drums when I say this), the crunch of guitars, cymbals, female vocals, good dynamics (thinking of classical), and a soundstage that is big. Hate sibilance and dryness/grain.
Sources: I play my music from my Zune and my laptop, no amp.
Hope I'm not asking too much for my budget. Thanks for any help.
