Ok so about 2 or 3 days ago I started a thread asking what were the best cans I could use as an upgrade to my Bose "around the ear" headphones. I'm at swim meets a ton, and use them A TON at home, so a closed design was prefered.
I wanted a great bass, good overall quality, good isolation, price tag prefererably under or at $400.

Well with the responses I've gotten, and with research I've done I've come to a final 5. I just wanted to hear what you guys had to say about them, which you prefer, which you think shouldn't even be in the list, or what should be here.

As a reminder, I mainly listen to trance, and electronic music (and some rock) so that may sway what you think is best.

Here are my final 5 (not in any specific order):

AKG K 272
Denon AH-D2000
Ultrasone Pro 750
DT440 (their open but I was hoping they'd still be fine in a loud environment.)
koss pro4aat

(and if DT440s wouldn't do well in loud environment or if there is another problem then it'd be these: Sennheiser HD 448)

Like I said opinions on these would be great and if I should consider others or take some of these out tell me.

Thanks

Perhaps if you post in the full-sized forum, you'll get more responses. But from the information you've provided, I'd say go for the ultrasones.

I've been looking into the Senn HD25 II's. The single cable design is a design I like and they aren't huge. I have yet to try them out yet. Waiting for my refund money from the S530's I returned.
