I'm relatively new to this forum and was hoping I could get advice. Basically, I'm looking to get a replacement set of headphones for my iPhone for commuting to and from work. I'm using some Audio Technica ATH CKS55i in-ears at the moment and although they are quite nice, overall I'd prefer on-ear headphones.
They'd have to be compact, lightweight, closed-back but durable and preferably with the 3 button apple remote. Some options I've seen include AKG K451 and the Audio Technica ATH WS55i. I've also seen the B&W P3s which is probably a bit out of my budget. Which of the above would be the best option in terms of sound quality? I'm from Ireland which unfortunately is not the best place in the world to try before you buy unless it's a major brand like Bose or Beats... Are there any other options I should be considering? Any feedback would be appreciated.
BTW I'm not interested in circumaural headphones as I personally find they are too bulky for commuting. I know that doesn't stop the legions of Beats fans but it's my own preference to keep things relatively low-key style-wise!
