I'd be interested to hear what you think of the Rev 2 HE-300. From what I can tell by what you have said, the Rev 1 and Rev 2 sound a whole heck of a lot different.

Yep. Apparently the Rev 2 is strikingly similar to the HD650, which I had fallen in love with.

Haha, do you have a local audio store nearby by chance?

I have moon audio fairly close. It's run my Drew Baird. Actually, I just got my HE-300s from him!

I know this thread is old, but, how would they be rated for portability?  And how bad is the sound leak INTO the headphone.  If i'm on a train (i know theyre open back, but comparing to open back cans) how much of a distraction will the outside sound actually be?

These don't block sound hardly at all.

 

They don't fold flat, but they aren't so thick that you can't pack them in a suitcase or backpack easily.
