Heheh, never really gave my ear size much thought
I think I'm on the fringes of what will fit that's why I'd love to try these first

From what I've read, and maybe someone can correct me, the k701's need to be properly amped, and I just don't think the fiio e17 is up to it

Because you need to spend at least another $200 on an amp to drive them to decent performance.  They also sound terrible with electronic music.

Yup they need a pretty powerful amp as far as dynamic headphones go, they will sound pretty bad with the e17 (my Q701s sounded awful when i tried em with an e7)

The Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 32 ohm Limited Editions would also be a good consideration.

These look interesting also, I can only find a couple reviews http://www.head-fi.org/products/beyerdynamic-dt770-pro-limited-edition-32-ohm/reviews/7137
Which is quite favorable

Currently I own akg k272s and hd600s. I'm also in the market for new closed back cans, the dt770s were at the top of my list for a while but I dont like the way most describe the sound sig (extremely bassy)

So what are you looking at instead?
I've never been a style whore but the momentums are pretty. But like I said,I'm concerned about cup size, and the sound seems to be, from the reviews, really good at a lot of things without excelling anywhere.
Dt770s are looking very good, as are the akg's for around $100 less.

Hmmm...

Well, after a lot, and I mean, a lot of reading, I decided to go with the Beyerdynamics DT770 LE 32ohm and Fiio E17 amp/dac

 

I feel this is a good starting point for me, I'll update with a review
