First post here.
I'm looking at getting a pair of headphones to use primarily on my commute to work, and potentially during work hours, but also within the house secondly. So my main priority, besides sound quality, is that they don't leak noise and that they isolate outside noise. I usually listen to indie rock, but also some electronic stuff and a little bit of hip hop. Think Radiohead/Arcade Fire/LCD Soundsystem/Kanye West. I don't mind a bit of bass. I'm looking at paying around the £150 mark ($240 USD).
I THINK I've narrowed it down to the following 3:
* Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
* Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO
* Shure SRH 840
I do like the look of the DT770's but concerned they may be too big for commuting. The HD25-1 ii's are probably better sized for commuting, but I've heard they may not be as comfortable for long term usage because of the smaller size (pushing against ears etc). If I had to prioritise I'd say the commute is more important in this respect, but I would like to be able to have them on for hours on end if necessary.
Any help would be great - also any other suggestions matching my criteria which I may have missed!
