Depends on what you like in a headphone.

 

The Sennheiser HD 558s and Beyerdynamic DT 990s are two good sets to start off with. Find somewhere to try them out, see what you like.

At that price point or lower I would say Shure 440 or CHC Silverados. The Shures really benefit from the 840 pads though. 

Don't the Silverados have bad highs?

I only had them briefly and that was not the case for me. But they are only $50 so you can't expect everything from them. I did not listen to them long enough to be completely sure of those highs though.

Some say Beats Solo2 is great :D

They're much better, but they're still beats. It has that unmistakable sound signature. They're honestly WAY better than before though

Bought a powermac G5, expect a mod log sometime in 2015

Corsair is overrated, and Anime is ruined by the people who watch it

I'm still skeptical. Are people really saying that the Beats Solo 2 is great or are they saying that they are great in comparison to the original Beats Solo which is infamous for being plastic garbage. Have they finally made it so that the fake versions of the headphones aren't actually better than the real ones? If so, I'm intrigued. But even then, presume I were to buy them - I would look like a 10 year-old with them on; no one would take me seriously while I wear a pair of celebrity endorsed headphones which are comically overpriced.

If you are a gamer try the Sony Pulse headphone it is ranked first in top 5 headphones in a video by ur average consumer,ath m50 was at 4th if you can believe that.

Ok then the one who made that list was smoking so much crack and weed. I have the Pulses, they are shit.
