I wonder if the Vmoda M80 would be too pricey?  That's getting up to appx $160 US.  Good style, closed design, very nice portability.  On the question of headphones, a great starting point would be to peruse Joker's thread on portable headphones.  Terrific introduction and overview:  http://www.head-fi.org/t/433318/shootout-107-portable-headphones-reviewed-astrotec-as-100hd-as-200hd-added-12-02-12

Didn't know about those, definitely interested. I was considering the audiotechnica M50, are these a major step up from those?

Don't think they are necessarily a step up compared to the M50s.  E.g. the M50s might give you

more detail.  Vmoda's were smoother and warmer to my ears.  But sounded good

on bass-centric music during the brief listen I had with them.  Also really liked how the Vmodas

are sized and styled.

Also saw the M100s and think that may be up my alley.

 

EDIT: NVM, at $300 i'll have to wait for another time.

DAC. amp. audio wiring and implementation. Note 2 DAC is good , but if you compare it to high end players like ibasso dx 100 and other players like it? you are losing out quite a bit, you don't need to completely ditch the note 2 , there is no reason to do that
