What are you doing with them? Are they just for video playback sampling? Are you doing studio audio recording? Are you recording live music? Do you need noise canceling? etc.
Here are the ones I have and I absolutely love them. A lot of what you pay for is comfort and these are pretty comfy.
It’s handy to have a set that has a detachable cable, just encase the cable gets damaged you can replace it instead of the whole headset.
If you’re going to travel a lot with them you might want to look for some that fold up.
If noise cancellation is a must, you will pay more for that.
Also, there are some Ultrasone headphones that will play back in 5.1 Dolby Digital which is pretty sweet, but probably out of your price range.
Here’s a good place to start. Give John or Jason a call about some. They are really helpful when it comes to this stuff.
