Hi, forgive me if I have created a topic that is irrelevant to the forums as I am really new but I was wondering if I could rely on you, the Headphonic forum community to help me with my picking of a suitable headphone for me to buy. Even a single headphone recommendation will be greatly appreciated. :)
What I am trying to find at the moment are a pair of suitable headphones for my lifestyle. I want some headphones that are:
1. Very nice sounding in everything in the spectrum of sound that we all listen for as I listen to a wide variety of music
2. Portable, as I like to go out and about and also something suitable for overseas travel
3. Somewhere under the $400 mark
4. Something semi-stylish, <---(not really a requirement but always thoroughly appreciated)
If you guys think of any cans that sound like what i'm looking for, again, it would be greatly appreciated if you could give a recommendation

Sincerley,
Brandon

Have a look at the Audio Technica ESW9. They have a great sound, good looks, and are portable.

DT250 fail the stylish test, although I guess their old-school-ness might have some hipster appeal? But they sound freaking fantastic, are portable and within your budget.

Personally though, I can't stand full sized headphones for portable use. That's why god (and his friends at brainwavz) made awesome canalphones :-)
