Best Over ear closed cans for £250/$350

All suggestions welcome guys :)

I don't know if they're "the best," but the B&O H6 seems to be one of the better options available.  Well made, excellent comfort, with an open sound that belies their closed design.  I can't detect any particular emphasis or coloration of any part of the spectrum (but I'm no expert, either).  My one sonic gripe is that vocals, particularly female, seem somewhat distant or thin.  I'm not sure I would have noticed if not for side-to-side comparison with my Sony MA900's.

 

They also have angled drivers which help positional cues, if you're into that.  Works great with Dolby Headphone processing.

 

I wish that they came with a case and non-remote cord.  I'm using them primarily for home use.

 

There are a lot of other options I haven't tried (or only tried very briefly), although I did prefer these to the B&W P7.  The H6 blows away my old Sony MDR-V6's.
