M-80 are on ear. I need something over ear. For better isolation.

What do you think about refurbished for $140 (talking about d1100). Or better to buy ultrasones new for $125? They both look good for me. But I don't know what's better for its price.

I've never tried the D1100, but I can say the HFI-580 is the best sound I've heard at its price point. I still love mine after upgrading.

Edit: They isolate just as much as circumaural headphones, except for some wind noise due to the semi open vent. Circumaural headphones IMO have not cut out more noise than circumaural. An HD25 will out do any circumaural in isolation IME (more so than an M50, D1100, any Ultrasone HFI/PRO series headphone, etc just to name a few examples... the next best thing is an IEM) and it's supraaural. It has more to do with seal, clamp, and what the cups/materials are made of.

A new  pair for $100? is a steal...seriously...amazon selling it expensive...$100 is worth the money anytime :)

Ok. I have to choose between denon d1100 and ultrasone HFI-580. Had no chance to try them. They are out of stock in closest bestbuys. So any suggestions?

Tough one, I won't be able to tell you ... i guess you'll have to go with your gut.

Or try to find a headfier who has had both pairs. That would really help.

Hfi 580. Much more balanced than the D1100, while still having great bass, detail and soundstage.
