I'm not really liking those beyers that you are recommending me they seem a bit small and I want something bigger..

They are quite comfy tho, and look very luxurious in person.. the pics don't really do them justice.

The beyer i mention sound big and loud, dont judge from the size, the isolation is pretty good too, the balance is okay for the price, i think he think it looks cheap and plasticy, but to me they are very portable, foldable, and look class!

Ok fine...I might consider them, but i need an overall review of the sound, isolation, comfort, etc.. Like I said I'm on a really tight budget and I MUST buy the right headphone or it will just start collecting dust..

Funny - I have either bought or using at least 3 phones form your list before reading your post. I checked almost all of those mentioned and chose some:

My main phones are Sennheiser HD 449, a version similar to HD 428 which you mentioned. I use them with my desktop, with Creative OmniSurround 5.1 usb panel which gives 600 Ohm sound to headphones, enough for 32 Ohm Sennheisers to sound well without any amps. It replaced HD 202, decent sound but too much clamping force. All in all, very happy with both Sennheisers and Creative, which is very customizable. HD 449 is a big phones with nice treble and enough bass for everything. It is extremely good sounding for me.

As I wanted something mobile and good sounding and ended buying Dtx501P Beyerdynamics and JVC HA S500, of which I bought a pair as a gift.

My impression is that JVC HA S500 was best sounding from almost 30 headphones I checked and it was number 1 best selling phone on sofmap.com, a leading Japanese electronics retailer. The combination of price, value and quality was brutal as they have a great design, great sound and very good bass. They cost less than 30 dollars. They were much better that WS55 in my opinion.

Beyerdynamics was great both for general music and particular compositions I wanted to listen too so I checked these songs on all headphones I tested. They have awesome bass and great clarity, very mobile, light and they cost close to 70 dollars.
