Thanks you may have saved me the trouble of starting my own ďwhat portable headphones to buyĒ thread since I also like my Sennheiser HD600s and canít stand wearing Grado.

If you are even looking for more portability the Koss KSC75 should also be in consideration. They are basically a clip-on version of the PortoPro and you can find them for around or less than $20. They also come with the standard Koss lifetime warranty.

Out of curiosity I dug my Koss A-250s out of the garage, they still sound good but there is no way to wear them because they have fallen into pieces and the ear pads are flaking off something wicked.

I've ordered the Audio Technica, they should be here Monday or Tuesday.

Koss has a lifetime warranty, send them back.

I did send them back, this was the replacement pair, I suppose I could keep trying to get my money's worth but at some point I usually just abandon ship.

Those Audio Technica's get some good reviews. Just saw them for $84 on beach camera.

That's a good price, they went up from $88 to $90 on Amazon while I was making up my mind, still not too bad, now if only the Alpine head unit I've been looking at (CDA 9887) hadn't gone up from $245 up to $309! Hope it comes back down.

For around $100 I don't think any headphone will compare to the Klipsch Image S4 (If you like in-ear cans).

The Portapros have such a cool 80s look to them too. Totally unique. I dig it!

Edit: Grunt super jealous of the HD600s. I listened to them in a store for almost an hour. The sales guy looked impatient wink

I really really like the AKG 501s sound too. I bet the higher end stuff AKGs are comparable to the Senn 600 and 650.

The high end AKG models will compete very well to the high end Sennheiser models (HD600, HD650, HD800). Same goes for the high end Beyerdynamic models.
