Thanks KG. The Shures seem perfect in every way except the reviews that state they lack in the bass range compared to HD280s. Im currently wearing HD280s and they sound sound to me, but my head cant handle the clamping force for the long periods of time I use them. Im hoping to find something close in sound to them.
Following up... I went to Guitar Center today and tried Sony 7506's and I was blown away by the sound and comfort...so now I'm very happy. They dont fold flat, but they do curl up pretty small, and that's fine by me. Gonna send back the HD 280s
