Which should I get for all-genre listening at home and on the go? Keep in mind, these are the things important to me, from most important to least.

 

1. Sound quality

 

2. Comfort

 

3. Durability (I care about this only slightly less than comfort)

 

I don't care about looks at all.

What kind of sound are you looking for?

(UPDATE) I went to the listening stands at best buy today and found that I didn't like the sound quality of the XS. I would prefer something less laid back, something that stands out more.

Logitech UE 6000, it has two modes

 

Passive [laid back] and active [Fun and energetic]

Are you talking about the laid back highs?

By laid back, I mean that with the XS the experience wasn't exciting enough for me.

Are you looking for more of a v shaped signature (more bass and treble)?

Doesnt seem too good

If you're into stylish cans i would look at the donscorprio dolphin. Theres also a little soundstage mod in the asian headphone thread.

I'm in the US. So how does the dolphin compare to the AKG and Sennheiser? BTW I tried the Sennheiser Momentum and found I liked it a lot. How does it stack up?

I haven't heard them myself but there are a few people that say the donscorpio reminds them of the sennheiser momentum. Same level of clarity and soundstage with more sub bass.
