Best on ear headphones?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I have a set of Bowers and Wilkins P3s headphones, they are fantastic headphones but are starting to get a bit loose. Any suggestions on what would be a good replacement portable headphones or should i just get another set of P3s? I cannot be bothered to carry a headphone amp around so please just phone compatible sets. I will also consider smaller over ears.

Cheers,

Will

Have you looked at the Innerfidelity Wall of Fame list?

Each headphone description also links to a full review. Tyll is well-regarded on Head-Fi as a professional reviewer.

VMODA XS. Momentums are right up there, but bass-heavy and so it's hard to call them a "best".

What price ceiling? Because if we're talking about absolute best I can go all the way up to the Edition 8 and PM-1.

Neither of those are on-ear.

PM-1 is. The pads are on my ears, and I think of the Ed.8 as what it would go against considering it worked loud enough with my smartphone and even with my desktop amp I had to put my ears next to the reverse side of the cups to hear any loud noise that these can pass off a bit as closed cups (all this in a noisy coffee shop too).

Different ear sizes. To me, both of them are over-ear, though I do have somewhat smaller ears.

I haven't found anything to beat the DT1350 yet,they just saw off a pair of ES10 that cost

twice as much.

Well, the more highly rated on-ears are the Sennheiser Amperior, V-Moda XS (previously M-80), Beyerdynamic DT1350 and Audio Technica ATH-ES9W. Each of them has their unique sound signature. I personally like the XS most.
