Only $300 and classified as portables, yet hooked up into a dedicated amp they sound incredible.

I have not heard the new B & O's. I hope they are as good as you say.
That said (based on the headphones I've heard so far), I'm guessing that the author of that list has pretty strange head shape proportions and a preference for forward treble presentation.
I only have old Stax sr34, and Sennheiser HD 598SE, to compare them to. And to my ears, they are more immediate, without being harsh. Sennheiser are excellent, but little bit too subdued and now I prefer them for HT listening exclusively. In comfort department Sennheiser is winner hands down. Also since they are "portable" B&O provides only one 1.2 M cable...while Sen. had them both,1.2 and 3m - at half price of B&O. figure that? I had to order 3M separately from another maker.
I wish I have other 'cans' to compare them to...so, Marco's website is practical reference point.
