Hey guys,
Looking for a set of portables with balanced sound and a slight bass hump. Currently have Audio Technica ATH-A900x for home and UM3X IEMs, any recommendations for portable (or at least semi-portable) circumaural or supra-aural headphones with a similar sound signature?
Thanks!

AKG K81 / K 518, with the thick foam pads removed and the headband bent a bit to reduce pressure on the ears, fits this description pretty well and is cost-effective.

Haven't heard the Senns. They're supposed to be top-notch, if you don't mind the somewhat steep pricetag.

IMO the HD25's fit your needs perfectly, if you can stand the boring looks (for some).
I like the way they look IMO.
