Hi, I was wondering which pair of headphones I should get. 

 

Sound 1/10

 

Bass 1/10

 

Comfortable 1/10

 

Portability 1/10

 

I will be using FiiO E17 with the headphones too. Will that make much of a difference?

And something else.. I heard the HFI 780s were a V sounding blah blah.. What does V mean and is V bad? And what other letters are there to describe sound?

 

Genre/Artists I will be listening to.

Techno

Dubstep

Chiddy Bang

Sammy Adams

Mac Miller

Matisyahu (One Day)

Jack Johnson

Foster The People

Franz Ferdinand

The Beatles

Gorillaz

Classic Rock

and some Post-Hardcore

This is taken from the sound glossary:

Quote:
V-Shaped - The description of a frequency response curve for a speaker or headphone. In layman's terms it means more prominent lows and highs with a recessed mid-range, hence the "V" shape formed from such a sound signature. Similar to a "U" shaped response curve but is generally used to describe a more dramatic difference.

 

Cant say if its good or bad, it depends on what you like.
