Hi everyone,
First post from a long time lurker....would really appreciate some advice.

I mainly listen House/Electro, mixed in with some classical once in a while. Overall I'd say I prefer a bass heavy sound.
My main headphones are Sony 7509HD and the AKG K450 ([size=small]excruciatingly[/size] uncomfortable for me).

I'm looking at a full-size (semi portable) and my options are:

Creative Aurvana Live @ $70
Audio Technica WS55 @ $100

Koss UR50 @ $90
I've heard a lot of good things about the CAL!, but may have a weak bass and bad sound leakage? Comfort is also an issue as the AKGs are an absolute nightmare for me. 
Any insight would be great!
