Hello guys, 
   I'm currently in search of a 2nd headphone pair .So ,if any of you is free , please kindly suggest me a headphone to me

Characteristic of the headphone that I want :-
 
- Detachable cables
- Works great without an amp
- Stylish look as I will be using it in public 
- Closed back headphone as I want good isolation and less sound leakage from my headphone
- Mainly listen to modern music and watching movies
- Must have a "HD surround" feels like you're watching movie at a cinema
- Portability is also a need
- Price range of 230 $ and below ( might spend 250$ if worth the price )
 
I prefer if the headphone is not bulky and looks weird and ugly . Any suggestion would be appreciated !

Shure SRH840, Soundmagic HP100

I was going to say Sennheiser HD25 but they don't have very good soundstage

M50 big bass sharp highs, not so great mids
SRH840 slight mid bass hump, fairly neutral with good clarity and wider soundstage

HP100 has such an impressive soundstage for a closed headphones, they do fold up and they do come with a carry case

I heard (I haven't actually heard them though) the Ultrasone pro 750s are pretty good for matching that stuff, they're on sale for 149$ right now on amazon, when they're like 225$ usually, do that's a steal.

The Ultrasone , I like their design . Do you know which one is better? The hfi 780 or the pro 750?

I think the pro 750 is better, the hfi 780 doesn't have a removal cable, but the 750 does. And like I said, I haven't heard either but I'm tempted to buy the pro 750 at this price :xf_eek:!

HD sound on a portable....hmmm....
i am listening to JAWs now on my Denon d1100  50mm drivers ...and earlier, to STAR WARs.
Modded it a little, stuck some felt n bluetac behind the cups. Its a beast of a can now...tight rumbling bass n airy.
i am having a great time.

I heard Denon's headphone is good , but its bulky and big although it is good. I just need something smaller and portable and have the HD feels. Noise cancelling/isolation is also a characteristic that I want of the headphone
