    Well I need some portable Dj-style headphone and I totaly have no experience on these. (more of an IEM guy acctualy)

    I was looking for the UltraSone HFI-15G. As far as my experience goes Ultrasone sounds awesome in the higher classes.

    But before buying I wanted to see if there is maybe something comparable to it - which is better.

    I prefer rather cold, less bassy output (55-110hz is always dropped down in my EQ) Can't stand that bass on hours of listening

    I just see that these headphones wont fit me very well on the go - I think there will be nearly no sound isolation and for home use I guess they will hardy beat my grados

    Chung I specifically told you about UltraSone.

    Anyways their headphones aren't very portable, they are all either open or semi-open, resulting in minimal noise isolation and maximum leakage. Also the cords are all 3 meters (11ft) although most do come with a coiled cord but it's still pretty bulky and not fun to carry around.

    Yeah I saw it. But just wanted to give you some solid reasons. Audio Technica makes good stuff, although I'm just going off what I've heard. They tend to be a bit bassy though. Can't wait for my ESW10's to get here!
