I'm looking for a portable headphone which will be used mostly outdoors and travel, music playing with my cell and ipad Air(wav and flac).
I've read many threads and recommendations including the best 100 portable shootout :
but few new models came out which are missing like the new Focal or the P7 from B&W.
Then I read the wonderful portables comparison by
Any recommendation will be appreciated, Most important merits are :
1. SQ .
2. Headphones must be closed and will not need an amp(though using one at home probably will improve outcome).
3. Comfort -over the ear is my most preferred.
Budget is around 600$
BTW, heard the Senn momentums-they were really nice ,after 30 minutes of listening the store owner gave me the Senn ie-800... I was stunned ! by the difference in SQ between the 2 models but then again it costs more than double- over a 1000$ so comparison is unfair.
P.S. I'm not comfortable with IE headphones in long listening sessions but willing to contemplate on buying one instead of buying a mediocre(soundwise) full size portable.
