I am not an audiophile but i only put 320kbps mp3 in my iPod. Will that be ok for the v6? :-)

It's not only about bitrate/lossless. It's about what they did when mastering/mixing/etc it too. If most of your music are rips from CDs and iTunes store stuff you should be fine. If you download music from YouTube videos (especially random people covering songs for fun) you might run into some bad stuff sometimes.

No. Only Cd riipped Songs, Itunes, Beatport. Ripping songs from Youtube always results in a complete ****....

How are the mids on the V6? Some say they're recessed, others strong and balanced.

Mids are somewhat recessed. Overall, it is a fairly flat headphone, but highs and bass are emphasized a bit over mids.

I'm looking for a generally neutral sound but if it's only slight I could probably overlook it.

I agree, and it can be overlooked.

How is the CAL! unamped? How are they for rap/hiphop? How is the clarity? How are the vocals? How is the instrument separation? Also do they fit completely around my ears? (I have small ears).

I know everyones ears are different but IMO, Nothing under $150 can touch the Cal's soundwise.  Point blank, I've tried just about everything under the $200 range and the Cal's just can't be beat.  Only one can IMO is a tad better and that's the HD558. My 558 was $105 and I feel that was a steal.  

But the Cal's cost what $60 in the US and I've seen them as low as $49 on Amazon. It's a No Brainer.  You have to jump way up the chain to get an upgrade over the Cal's.

$300 range up!!!

I've tried the HD 558 unamped with my mp4 player in the store, and tbqh my AKG K540 trumps it out of the water in every category but soundstage.
