well, I've never owned a set of expensive closed backs portables, even though I've tried a few. I've got a few grips that I am afraid I will have to live with such as on ear sets, which I hate. I have some requirements and I hope to meet as many of them as possible. Three must be met, which are a short cord no more than 4ft long, and being a circumaurial over the ears set style, and has a very large spacious stage. On ear sets with long cords are out of the question. This set will be used while i am moderately mobile, walking around a little. Isolation is not important.
*note when I say portable I mean something to be used indoors but relatively small, but still full sized.
My requirements are:
-over the ear*
-short cord no more than 4ft long*
Should I be looking at the Ultrasone Edition 8 or 9, or maybe the D7000 recabled with a shorter cord? Any help or advice is appreciated.
