I would go with Sony Monitor's (MDR-V600): http://amzn.to/N56OqE
I am an audio engineer and I (and the majority of engineers out there) use these due to their accuracy. They produce great, accurate sound and are also affordable to most everyone (usually under $200). To get better, you will be spending a LOT of money as the $150-300 range usually match each other. I have a shure, 2x sennheisers, boss (hate it when it comes to comparison, but it was a gift) and the 2x the sony monitors (one personal, one I travel with for work).
So there be my vote!
The only pair that really impressed me enough to say they are better....they were $1400 and requires a $1500 amp to go with it (not reasonable).
Well these are mainly for gaming and less for music, the closed design on those sonys are going to hurt them for that use.
If you want monitor headphones then HD 280 pros would probably be good as well, and cheaper.This post was edited by Grief_exe on Jul 7 2012 05:04pm
