Ok so based on the recommendations I have gotten so far, I have eliminated the AKG K550's because of portability issues. I read that the cable is very long.
The ones you mentioned are too pricey and I don't want active noise cancellation with the U6000.
So I've finally narrowed it down to the Soundmagic hp100 and the Seinnheiser Momentums.
As to whether or not they are neutral, I don't know. But what are your thoughts on these two and which one would you ultimately pick?
OK--but if you read the review, the UE 6000 can be played and sound best with their active noise cancellation turned off. Yet, it is good to have if you are sitting next to a jet engine.
If it's down to the other two, I don't especially like the Momentums (although many others do) and--as I have mentioned above--have not heard the the Soundmagic.
BTW--are you considering the on ear or over ear version of the Momentum? If the latter, many people have found their ear cups to be too small for comfort.
