I'd say that it really depends on where and how you plan to use them the most. For example, my choice would be very different taking into account whether I'm using them in the office primarily, at home primarily, or if trying to find one that will provide the best overall usage. At Home — HIFIMAN HE-560
At The Office — Modded Fostex T50RP (MK3)
Overall — Bose QuietComfort 35 The HE-560 is just too open for most situations, but personally they've had my favorite sound signature, and they receive the most praise from those I've had try them besides an HD 6XX + Bottlehead Crack combo. I really like HD 6XX with the Bottlehead Crack, but the HE-560 is more versatile in terms of what types of music are very satisfying through them. I really dig the planar bass on them. The Fostex are great at the office, they're closed enough that I don't bother colleagues, but the comfort of Shure Alcantara pads and the sound signature after modding is great. Can wear them for ages without the sound or comfort being fatiguing. If I was forced to pick just one though, I'd probably go for the QC35. They're far more versatile in terms of practical day-to-day usage than the other two I've mentioned. The option to use Bluetooth or a wired connection, battery life, comfort, simplicity (no need for an amp), and noise cancelling (especially on planes) are big pluses for them. The sound signature is good too, though I'd certainly favor the other two choices above in that department. For context, these are the ones I own • Audeze LCD-3 (Fazor) • Audeze Mobius • Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 ohm • Bose QuietComfort 35 • DUNU DN1000 • Fostex T50RP - Modded myself with Mayflower Electronics mod kit • HIFIMAN HE-4XX • HIFIMAN HE-560 • Samsung (AKG) EO-IG955BSEGUS • Sennheiser HD 6XX Also tried some others like the Fostex TR-X00 and the Master & Dynamic MH40 which were enjoyable to listen to as well. I could see using both of those in the office. Given how much I've liked the HE-560 I decided to hop on the drop for the HIFIMAN Edition XX, so looking forward to those as well.
