Hey, I'm looking for a pair of headphones that I can use with my mp3 player when on the go. I've been looking at the PX100, KSC 75, and the AKG K 26 P. Does anyone have any idea which I should go with? I'll be using it with my DJ and i listen to rock/hip-hop/and techno/electronica. Thanks in advance.

I would go Koss if isolation isn't important, if it is, then go K 26 P.

You sure the MS1 won't do the job nicely? It's a pretty portable can.

I would kinda keep my MS-1s at home... unless it's a REALLY long trip that is... I'm just looking for portability, don't wanna be stuck with one can, do it?

I was advised not to get the K 26 P's, and to get the ATH-FC7's instead. I just ordered them, and they should arrive by early next week. They seem to be pretty portable and they are also closed.

to be honest, I have NEVER heard any pair of headphones besides my 2 gaming headsets and my sony earbuds

hopefully, the MS-1s will open my ear and I can get used to listening to great sounding cans, portable or not. so really, anything I get that's recommended will sound better than anything i've heard before

you cant go wrong with the KSC-75. If you hate them, all youre out is the cost of a DVD.

well... i'm already getting the MS-1s as a present (haven't ordered yet, still thinking about HD 555) and i'm thinking of a portable cheap can that I can buy with my own money.

question. I've heard that the KSC 75s have a similar signature to the Alessandro/Grado line, but what does the PX100s sound like in the Sennheiser family?
