    TMA-1 without question; I've used all three and have owned the Xone and the TMA and there is no comparison. The Xone sound quality is phenomenal, with a good boost in the bass for club use, but the sound isolation is SOOOO much better on the TMA-1s, which also have phenomenal sound quality. The Technics also sound great -- I've only used them once before and never compared them side by side with either of the others, but as I recall they weren't even in the same league.

    edit - chrisw is correct, the TMAs aren't foldable whereas the A+Hs fold up nicely (though make sure you turn the earcups towards the headband and not towards each other or you will smash out the cups and it will take a few days for them to bounce back). But the TMAs are really solidly built -- they feel flimsy at first but try banging them around and you'll see what I mean. Toss them in the bag they come with and just don't smash them between stacks of records or something and they will be fine; the lack of folding ability is sort of a nuisance but not a deal breaker in my opinion....

    Don't always jump for the foldable ones. More moving parts = more shit that can break.

    I'd always recommend the Sennheiser HD25-II's. Built like tanks
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Overear vs. onear is the real comparison here...obviously isolation will be better with any on ear IMO

    Out of the list, I'd go for the TMAs.

    (Having both Isolation & Sound Quality far above par, makes it a surefire contender!)

    I dunno. My on ears isolate pretty damn well. And I find myself keeping the volume down, which is always important to avoid the dreaded tinnitus.

    I found over ear to, in general, feel looser and let more sound in from the outside unless I held them there. Granted, my over ears with the cool pivot points broke more times than I care to remember. My Senn's are finally showing wear and tear around 3 years later.
