Also, please don't say you tried them out in a Best Buy. For some reason the setups they have there are horrific. Everything sounds muffled and weak. The on-ear had filling bass, really clear highs, and present (though definitely not mindblowing) mids. I admit I'm what you'd call a "street" listened, my library is metal/rap/electronic. What I need in a set is likely different from you.

 

THAT'S ANOTHER THING: I have not found any in-store product demos that sounded particularly good. I try on the phones in a store to get an idea for fit and squint to hear the character of the sound, but I don't know if it's the source they have hooked up or crappy wiring or what, but it's always awful. 

There is no 'Best Buy' in Germany.

I always audition directly from my PA2V2 + iPod Classic. 
At the 'demo-stations' they have in Frankfurt, you can often unplug the headphones and plug it into your own device.

The Sennheiser demo station even has sets that are wired INTO the station so you can't unplug them, and right beside those, unplugged headphones that you can try out with your own device. Very helpful indeed.

 

I'm pretty sure it was the on-ear version. I guess I'll have to go and try out the over-ear version now then. :D

Yeah the big box stores do something like that too, and maybe yours are made better but holy HELL here every pair I've tried on the demo station sounded bad. Even with my own music plugged in. 

 

And hey, the on-ear and the over-ear have wildly different characters. Some people ADORE the over ear, maybe that's more your speed! But I really loved the hell outta the on-ear DNAs. The Beats Mixrs edge them out thanks to a better bass response, but it's close.
