I don't think you provide enough information. Is it for home hi-fi or mobile, do you prefer open, semi open or closed designs?
And I think you should really test the sound and see if the headphone is comfortable to wear.
I have a Beyerdynamic DT
770 Pro. It sits comfortably and has a nice natural sound, but it is certainly not the right one for iPhones or gamers. And I normally prefer semi open designs.
I used to love AKGs but I hear they went downhill after they came under Harman's umbrella. There ought to be some good ones, though! The old K240 was the bang-for-bucks headphone for a long time. If the MK II
is as good, I don't know, but amazon lists them for a mere $ 69. That's a steal:
Sennheisers have a particular sound which I for one don't really like.

>$150 always better than the $40 to $75 ones or are you just paying for the brand name?
Yes, they are. I am hard of hearing and have no difficulties hearing differences between different headphones. El Cheapo headphones try to impress with bass and compression. That said $ 150 isn't that much for a good headphone, really.
