    What headphones to buy?

    It looks like you've distilled the list of available headphones down to most of the very good ones, but what headphone to buy? :confused:

    You have selected a variety of different sized models, with the Sennheiser HD380 being one of the largest (it has big oval ear cups) and the Audio-Technica ATH-ES55 being the smallest (these are on-ear, whereas all the rest are over-ear).

    If you want very portable the Audio-Technica ATH-ES55 is a great choice.

    If you can live with larger, over ear headphones then the either the Audio-Technica ATH-M50, Beyerdynamic DT770 or Shure SRH840 would be my choice.
