anyone have the HD485's? i was thinking of getting them for portable use. I listen to various forms of electronic music mostly and heard they are pretty good. Heard they are very comfy... can anyone confirm this?

I'd have my doubts about HD485s for portable use. They aren't exactly small (the front shot from Headroom shows that quite well if you're looking at the relative sizes vs. the 1/4" plug), and since they're open isolation is likely to be low as well. Anyway, I'd certainly want to lend them an ear, if only for curiosity's sake.

Greetings.
I bought the 485s when I read they were ZDNets prefered headphones for testing portables. I use a iriver h320 and either the 485s or ety ER-6s. The 485s are super comfortable and I really like the sound. They have a strong bass (the etys are weak on bass). I am really pleased with the 485s. I would buy them again.

Perhaps people are being polite



I think major dorkage, but well... up to you. If you want isolation, the HD215 are equally... individual looking.

Could be. You should try it.

The 485s are open air. Not for isolationist needs.
