What are you looking for from your ideal portable headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi.
Random question time: what features or qualities are you looking for in your ideal 'on-the-go' headphones?
 
Myself, I would like a set of on-ear headphones that:
- have great sound quality (...)
- reasonably good isolation (can hear a car when it's close, but enough to not be disturbed by noise in general, nor wind-noise.)
- are small, lightweight and so comfortable that I forget I have them on.
- are stylish but subtle.
 
Thanks!

- Maximum sound quality achievable straight from an iPhone

- At least average isolation

 

- Cost, comfort, form factor, looks, weight, portability can all be compromised if I have these first two.

Biggest factor for me is plushness of earcup shielding.  I'm talking about the damping material used in headphones.  If they skimp on that, you're cooked.  Might as well go for speakers.
