Summary: REVIEW: Sony MDR-ZX700, Philips Cityscape Uptown, Sennheiser PX 200 II
Recently I've been in search of a pair of portable headphones. My main use scenario is music on-the-go. I do cycle a lot so I really needed something that would be compact, light and sturdy (in case of accidents) and yet not...
Pros: great sound quality (balanced, neutral, detailed; deep, tight & well controlled bass; good comfort; feels solid; nice unobtrusive design
Summary: These just arrived a couple of hours ago so I can't say anything conclusive yet but so far I'm loving them!

Pros: Very 'true' to the recording, surprising separation and soundstage for a closed can, comfortable, easily driven, portable.
Cons: Require some amping for the bass presence some may like,do heat up after a while.
Summary: I bought this headphone at the sony store in Paris for the msrp of 100euros and been using it for the past 3 days with my iPod shuffle 4g(ALAC), aony nwz-a829(mp3 320kb/s) and FiiO E11. Haven't done any burn-in yet.
The package included the headphones and only an extension cable(1.8m).
Summary: I recently picked up an X-Series Walkman and wanted to replace my old Sennheiser PX200 'phones that I used to listen to my A-Series Walkman with. A friend lent me his FiiO E11 for a day and I bought one immediately.
Pros: very comfortable, incredible isolation, excellent sound quality and sensitivity
