If you want pure bling that doesn't suck, check out a pair of Soul SL150 or SL300 by Ludacris. In white they look really nice, IMO, and they have first rate isolation. If you want some great cans with more "meat", check into Denon AH-D2000. They aren't as flashy, but they sound incredible for the price. Also, V-MODA V-80 or M-80 are a great balance of style and sound quality and very durable.
So that's a no to the Beats :p , they look like they're made of plastic that's true xp but is the sound quality really that bad ? It still is a €300 headphone :s The Ludacris' Soul headphones aren't really my style :p and the Denon is a bit too much for me :p they look REALLY BIG :p The V-Moda M80 looks cool and a lot of people seem to recommend it :p And also too bad that you didn't hear the b&w p5... and on ear or over the ear... i don't know, does that matter ? What would you recommend ?
Thank you for all your help !!! Much appreciated

Some will come on here and say they're overpriced crap and someone will recommend the ATH-M50, but all I have to say about the P5 is they are universally praised elsewhere than here and the main Head-Fi reviewer Jude is in love with the P5. B&W is used at Abbey Road Studios, Skywalker Ranch, etc. They come with a FANTASTIC warranty, as well. You wouldn't need an amp, either.
Stay away from the celebrity headphones (Soul, Beats, etc.)
What do you mean with the in-your-face sound signature that's a bit muddy ? :p I don't really like the ATH-M50's style and I read a review of the b&w p5 here and they weren't all too happy about but oh well.. And what do you mean with , no need for an amplifier ? (i really am the biggest noob in this whole place :p)
THnk you for helping out !!

Yes I know... I'd really go for that classy look.. They look special and I just don't know about the V-Moda... :/ If you'd compare just in sound and stuff, who wins Vmoda or B&w ?
Thanks for your help !
