I got stung by the HF bug, yet again: New HP needed. ES55, S500, S400?

Ladies and gentlemen it is time again, for a new one! After the RS2, SR80, ESW9, ESW10jpn, M50, PRO900, SHP9000, SHP5400/1 etc I'm keen to get my hands on a new portable HP. I have my eye on the heavily praised ATH ES55, it seems perfect for my needs. However, I wonder how it would hold up against the JVC S500, also heavily praised. Maybe someone could shed some light here. Also, are there other contenders in the line of these two?

Edit: What worries me a little bit about the ES55 is that there are quite a bunch of polarizing reviews. Whathifi for example loves it, as well as a bunch of Head-Fiers, in contrast to others who think they're muffled and so so.
