The two cans you are considering are fundamentally different because the P5 is closed whereas the HD598 is open. They sound very different, although they both more or less satisfy your needs. The P5 has slightly more thumping bass than the HD598 and this is probably caused largely by its closed design.

For encoding mp3s, 320kbps is probably a waste of space, VBR V0 will produce the same results sonically. It is best if you just install Foobar2000 and ABX various bitrates yourself though.
