I am looking for headphones that meet the criteria listed below:

- $200-$300

- can be driven directly from iphone/ipod (no amp required)

- warm, musical sound (booming bass not necessary)

- suitable for wide variety of music

- comfortable

- moderately portable

- decent looks

 

Models being considered are:

B&W P5, Philips Fidelio L1 or M1, Sennheiser Amperior, Focal Spririt One, AKG K550

 

Please provide your recommendation from these or provide your own suggestion.

 

Thanks!

I would say out of the ones you already listed the Sennheiser Amperiors would be the best. If you would like to save a little money you could look at the Sennheiser HD25 which are the cheaper predecessor to the Amperiors, but are awesome as well.

My suggestion would be the V-Moda M80. It's under $200, looks terrific and sounds great. You can get them in black or white.

thanks for your input, joelw.  How would you compare/contrast the V-Moda M80 to the LP2?
