V-Moda M80's are a pretty good choice if you don't mind them being on-ear, and you can pick them up from Amazon for $130 with free shipping from their Warehouse Deals section. I got a pair listed as "Very Good" when they were at a steeper discount of ~$110, and I couldn't tell they weren't new other than the fact that they had been opened.

They come with a nice carry case that isn't too big, and come with two heavy-duty detachable cables with mics too.

Budget is very, very important. Not much point in me recommending a pair of HD800s to someone who thinks "budget doesn't matter much" means like $100.

And yeah, go to head-fi. Supremely knowledgeable people there who aren't as prone to the newbie cycle.

While I understand that budget is important it's also a bridge I am willing to cross when I come to it. I would prefer to pay less but if I see something that is just unbeatable and it costs $350 that may be a bullet I have to bite.

Still off a ways, headphones go into the thousands. for instance, you can find the HD800 mentioned by aak57 at $1500 USD.

I'm aware. If I was going to spend that much I would just go with custom IEMs though.

I have some audeze lcd 2s hooked up to a schiit lyr amp and a xonar essence stx sound card, which I use as my dac. It sounds fantastic.

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

That must be a pain in the butt to cart about when you want to go for a walk though.

TC, you might want to look at the Sennheiser HD25-1 II.

At their everyday asking price of ~$150, they're not. At the ~$100 sale price, they're decent.
