Was looking for a 50-150 pair of good quality closed headphones,
I read a lot of reviews before finally deciding on the Sony MDR7506 (Amazon.com, Google .etc) and I have to say they don't disappoint, these headphones sound great and are very comfortable (though give them a week to break in), I use them all day long and even whilst running on my treadmill as they stay-put and don't jump around.
I could name 30 different alternatives I looked at during my search but the few I narrowed the search down to (based purely on reviews) were the Sennheiser HD280pro (my second choice), Beyerdynamic DT770, Beyerdynamic DT 235, Sony MDR-V600 and the Sony MDR-7506.
The only down side to the Sony MDR-7506 to me was the lack of soft ear-pads (which is a personal choice), but I found even this to be easily fixed in the form of "Beyerdynamic DT250 Replacement Ear Pads" that are perfectly compatible and interchangeable with the Sony MDR-7506 Ear-pads, which was a superb find providing both quality and comfort.
