Library Headphones ??

I spend almost everyday at the library or traveling by airplane.

Currently I am use a Macbook Pro, Pandora, Nuforce uDAC2 and MEElectronics M6 (IEM), I want a more spacious sound stage. I find canal phones lacking in soundstage.

In the past I carried my Sennheiser HD 201 back and forth to the library, they are cheap and sound okay. But with so much time listening, I want a higher quality headphone with more soundstage. I have tried the Sennhesier 280 and 380 and they "clamp the head".

Considering:
Audio-Technica ATH-M50s - $159 (rated Class C 2010 Stereophile)
Sennheiser HD 25-1 II - $199
AKG K240STU - $99 (semi-open)

Any other suggestions?

Soundstage,comfort, cost and durability are my prime objectives.

Thanks!

good phones

I don't have experience with those so my feedback is not that useful - but if you can afford to spend less, I like Beyer Dynamic DT-235. They are closed-type, therefore good for the library. They're comfortable, and I think excellent sound for about $65.
