Seriously???

 

1. The 7000's have a 6.3mm plug and cable is hard to manage

2. The 7000's are enormous and made of "look me and I scratch" wood

3. The 7000's isolation is not so good around 10-15db

4. The 7000's are meant to be home amped

If you have to shorten the cable to a significant degree and use a 1/4" to 1/8" mini-plug adaptor (the jack for the D7000 is already big, so adding an adaptor would make it bulge out of your pocket), you know you're not dealing with a portable headphone. The T5p has an L plug with a 1/8" jack, which makes it a more feasible option in regards to portability (though it's still not a feasible option per se since its cable is very long), and I trust that it'll hold up better than the D7000 on-the-go since the D7000's cups are more prone to scratches. Doesn't the T5p also come with a carrying bag?

While your point's well taken, I still think the T5p is more portable (not saying it is portable) than the D7000.

I wouldn't personally use either as portables since they don't isolate well and are big but hey, different people have different views on portability. On top of the clear portables such as the HD25 and the DT1350, I would also consider the Pro headphones from Ultrasone.

Tells me to get a cheap carrying case.

If you shorten the cable, you could just terminate it with a 3.5mm plug instead of a 6.3mm. Both headphones have a 3m cable and I do not consider a 3m cable remotely manageable for portable use. Personally, I would probably still shorten and reterminate the cable if I had the T5p. I have never seen the T5p in person so I can't comment on durability but as you said I wouldn't use either as portables since no one want to lug around $1000 headphones that could possibly be damaged on the go ph34r.gif. But then again there's the Ultrasone E8 which seems to be pretty well suited for portable use but that sure is a lot of $$$$.
