I use a pair of HD 558s. I would include a picture, but I'm at school. I like the sound, they're comfortable, and I like open-ear in general, but the clamping pressure is a little weak.

Probably the Sennheiser Orpheus HE90's. They sound awazing, but I don't really have 16.000$ to spend on headphones.

It might just have been the placebo effect, so who knows.

I use a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770's for my everyday, and they also sound very good.

Mayflower's T50RP's sound pretty good, but for gaming or classical I haven't heard anything that beats AD700's. 

 

DT990's are kinda meh IMO

Tried:

 

LCD-3

 

LCD-2

 

LCD-X

 

HD800

 

HD650

 

HD600

 

 

Own:

 

HiFiMan He-500

 

Audio Technica ATH-AD900X

 

Best I've used so far: Probably a tossup between the lcd-3 and my he-500's, the LCD-3 sound a bit less open, but the comfort is unreal

depends really, my favourite headphones for sitting at my computer are probably the logitech g930 or g430. For listening to music generally, using my phone whilst on the go etc. etc. I have to give it to the SOL republic tracks HD.

Just got a pair of ATH-T400's. Like them, but I've only had headsets in the past.. So far they are great. Know I'm going to be sticking with them for awhile.

Shure SE315's are my daily drivers, and they are perfect for going to school, walking or biking, with great comfort and portabillity for my use.

They are flat in sound signature, you get what you were promised, so I am really happy with them!

Qpad QH-1339!

 

Currently using a Qpad QH-85 that I regret buying. My old damaged (got an evil cat) Razer Megalodon sound better.
