    Hey, I'm looking at getting some new headphones. One for home use and another for portable. Want to spend about £180 on the home and the rest on portable! Come up with AKG K701 & Shure E2C-N combo, was wondering if anyone had opinions/alternatives. Thanks.

    Sounds pretty good. Although are you planning to spend significantly more time listening at home or on the move? It might be worth spending a little more on the portable set up. Maybe the E3C for 59.99 (amazon) or Etymotic Er6i (about £60) (which I have)

    That's not what he said!

    I would be interested to know what portable headphones have a quality comparable to the K701s.

    Depends what you mean by quality. Of course none will have the same air as the big open back phones but for detail the shure e500 are probably better in my book
