    hi everyone,
    i ve been using many headphones and im not very happy with my actual one which is a sennheiser HD 25- II. i found the sound quality very good especially with the bass, it has a very strong passive isolation. the only thing that i don't like is that the sound is tight like compact.
    so yeah , im looking for a new headphone ( audio technica, beyerdynamics, sennheiser, pionneer etc.. which has :
    - the isolation is excellent
    - comfortable
    - a good bass
    - not heavy ( 150-200g)
    - good frequency ( below 15Hz - above 25kHz)
    - a closed back headphone
    - the general sound is not compact or tight
    the price must be between $200-300

    hi ,
    i looked all of them , i read all reviews and also some customers feedback.
    the Ultrasone is good but the logic S system doesn't reaaly work
    the Shure is too heavy ( knowing that i will also use on the go )
    the denon is good to me

    i have another question : what do you think about the Sennheiser MM550 because it got the WOW surround HD which give a more spacious sounding, the noise cancelling is quite good i know and it's bluetooth which is good on the go.
    thanks you very much for your reply

    I would actually have a look at those German Maestro 8.35D's for your needs. Its closed but better than average sound stage and excellent in bass response and pretty comfortable for me. The V Moda M80 is also one that might suit your tastes also with superb comfort, fit, looks, bass response and very non-fatiguing sound.

    Vmoda M80 and GMP 8.35D

    I sent a V80 and 8.35D off to Singapore yesterday, to someone whose name ends in '71', so we should be seeing some new reports from that very active forum member in the next few weeks.
