Copypasting from my Incipio F38 vs Monoprice 8323 thread:
Hiya, i'm currently using a pair of Phillips SHE 3850s but I'd really like to replace them. While I love them for their sound quality, the itchy feeling I get in my ears while wearing them drives me insane, not to mention the annoyance of having to maintain a good seal in order to get that delicious sound quality. I have tried multiple tips but they've all had similar bad results, so i'm just gonna go ahead and buy a portable headphone. I've been passively looking into these two pairs for the last couple of months but I can't come to a conclusion no matter how many threads I look at. ;_;
I'm pretty bad when it comes to naming genres, but i'll try. Some of the genres that i'm into are nu jazz, acid jazz, smooth jazz, bossa nova, EDM, jpop, chiptune, and electronic stuff in general. When I listen to music with vocals its almost exclusively female vocalists. Here is my last.fm profile in case I am wrong: http://www.last.fm/user/OptimaShift They will be driven by a rockboxed Fuze V2. Priority list: looks (which personally, the Incipios beat the Monoprices by a longshot) = sound quality > sound leakage > comfort > isolation > build quality; i'm not really sure what other criteria fall into judging headphones. Pretty adamant about choosing these two models in specific, so please try not to recommend me any other headphones unless they are within the same price range & are closed. If you guys have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.
