MP4 is a container that is often used for HD content. Mp4 video files typically use the h.264 video codec, which is the exact same codec as used in Blu-ray and for most HD content in general!

AKG K550 (175)
Nice balanced sound signature with slightly emphasized bass. Very comfortable and you won't even need an amp for them as they have an impedance of 32 Ohms.
