Didn't realize this was a photography forum. I have a ton of headphones and can tell you from experience, not just copy & paste from someone else, what's what with them. Sorry if I can't just snap photos in a way that is pleasing. Clearly I'm wasting your time. My bad.

I was considering getting Q40 but I though they looked 2 bulky 4 portable. I got Superlux hd661 now and they are fine - maybe little fatiguing and not very comfortable. Well when it comes 2 SQ [I'm a noob and I can't describe it good] they do most of the things great but something is missing and not just right 2 me and I can't put my finger on it. + they look weird on me. I have a small head and it's just 2 much headband around it and not on it.,
I saw you're picture of Q40 in your review on you're head and they are great looking HP and they look like a nice fit. My question is are they very similar 2 Panasonic HTF600 'cause I order them and I don't want 2 much similar HP's. Thanx
The Q40 to me isn't that bulky, it's smaller than a Beyer, it's the same size as most portable full sizes and folds up (just they don't swivel the cups). The FA003 is a bulky headphone. Huge even. The Q40 is a little similar the HTF600, but the Q40 has better overall sound quality and is a better built headphone, with nice accessories and folds up and all. If you already have the HTF600, the Q40 is quite similar, so unless you plan on having that, I would look at other options. Both are smooth treble, good mids, big bass headphones, comfortable, closed, and easy to drive. The Q40 has more isolation, and in general, better quality in all regards, but not tremendously so. I use any headphone as a portable, except open headphones (exception: Grado, I use it when I'm outside often); so my Hifiman HE500 doesn't go outside, but I have a portable setup for it too to carry my Schiit Bifrost/Asgard/Lyr/HE500 and then the laptop or whatever source I choose (a Pelican case) but that's for travel, to survive an airplane or trunk, not for portable sake. My portable setup has been on islands from kayaks. I love taking hifi to strange places.
