So you don't like beats... but at the same time it's completely impractical to lug around full-sized open headphones which also come with like 10ft cables, not to mention leak sound and are pretty fragile.
There are other over-ear, closed options that sound better than beats like the Sennheiser Momentums, UE6000s, or Sony MDR-1R's.
Add the V-Moda M100 to that list. I really liked the V-Moda. Also, Ultrasone Pro 900. ...and I guess Yamaha Pro 400/500 (if you like the beats styling)
