Hi, I was wondering which pair of headphones I should get. 
 
Sound 1/10
 
Bass 1/10
 
Comfortable 1/10
 
Portability 1/10
 
I will be using FiiO E17 with the headphones too. Will that make much of a difference?
And something else.. I heard the HFI 780s were a V sounding blah blah.. What does V mean and is V bad? And what other letters are there to describe sound?
 
Genre/Artists I will be listening to.
Techno
Dubstep
Chiddy Bang
Sammy Adams
Mac Miller
Matisyahu (One Day)
Jack Johnson
Foster The People
Franz Ferdinand
The Beatles
Gorillaz
Classic Rock
and some Post-Hardcore

This is taken from the sound glossary:
V-Shaped
 - The description of a frequency response curve for a speaker or headphone. In layman's terms it means more prominent lows and highs with a recessed mid-range, hence the "V" shape formed from such a sound signature. Similar to a "U" shaped response curve but is generally used to describe a more dramatic difference.

 
Cant say if its good or bad, it depends on what you like.
