Considering the Harman Kardon CL as my first pair of on-ear headphones. Good choice or no? I...

These would be my first set of premium-quality headphones. the only decent ones i've owned so far have been the Klipsch Image S4s. 

 

I had originally been considering the ATH-M50s and the Grado S60i's, due to them being recommended almost everywhere. However, the Harman Kardon CLs have a really beautiful design imo, and from the reviews i've read, the sound quality is supposed to be quite excellent, and good for travelling since I commute a lot (one reason i removed the Grados from the running, because i heard they leak a lot of noise). i do have a good set of in-ears, but i go away for long periods at a time, and would love to have a set of on ears with me when i go.

 

i've tried on the M50s and i was impressed by the sound, although not completely blown away. Haven't been able to try the CLs since i couldn't find them at any retailers around me. 

 

with that being said, would you recommend the Harman Kardon CLs as good entry level audiophile headphones?
