Hey, I'd like to see what my options are for a portable fullsize or on ear for under $200. I listen to electropop, post-hardcore. Closed headphone. I already own the Koss ProDJ100, but I'd like something with a little bit more bass as the DJ100 does not isolate that well; you know the story. 
 
I like:
- Good isolation, as I will be taking these to school/on the bus.
- Comfort is a plus, but I most likely will be wearing them for short periods of time.
 
I am totally OK with buying Amazon Warehouse Deals. I'm looking at the following:
- HD25
- ATH-M40fs

Decided to bump up my budget to around $240.V-Moda M100 vs HD25 anyone?
 
I'm really leaning towards the M100. I think I'm going to sell all my headphones, except for my Q701's, buy HD600's and an M100.

Watch out for this kind of reasoning. Cos in two months you'll want to sell your M100s and Q701's for something else...
 
That said, those three sound like great complements.

Well, I've heard the M100's, but not the HD25. I never use my V6's, my TBSE are only used on the school bus very rare if I use them at home, and my 558's have gotten less headtime because they aren't that clear sounding, and soundstage isn't that great. 
 
I basically need one portable, two for home use.
