But I know absolutely nothing about what is good. There are a lot of sales on right now at Futureshop (Canada), which is where I was looking, but again, I know very little about what brands are actually considered good.

Here are a few examples:

Sennheiser HD518 - $99.99 (save $110)

Sennheiser HD 360 - $69.99 (save $110)

Sennheiser Wireless RS160 - $119.99 (save $180)

Id be using them for a bit of everything. Lots of music, gaming, etc. I've already had a set of Z-5500 speakers for ages, as well as a Xonar DX soundcard.

I enjoy my Sony 7605's I got em for about $80 at a local shop and I think amazon has em for about the same price.. Great sound and a long cord, they feel nice and solid too.

I use them for gaming, music and music production.

I am using the sennheiser 518 right now, and they are very good, so good in fact that they make you realize all the problems your mp3 files have. XD

A lot of my music have defects, that before this headphones I never notice.

Do you remember how much you paid for them?

Get the Sennheiser HD600. Make sure you have an amp to drive them though. I have an Asus Xonar essence STX. And it sounds amazing,

For a bit of everything, the Hfi Ultrasone 780s are fantastic. I paid 160 for them but they're usually 280 dollars on amazon. I'd keep an eye on them. Only thing is when they first arrive, the highs are kind of harsh, but really mellow out after a hundred hours or so of burn in. I just left my playlist on random and let music play for 4 days straight on them and bam. Beautiful soundstage. Amazing clarity. Punchy, responsive bass. Perfect sound decay

bump your price range and get the HD 558s, remove the foam padding in the speakers, and it turns into a 598
Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.

@Scody

Your sound card is good enough to run anything in your price range. For higher end headphones it's better to have an external amp/dac, but that's not something you have to worry about.
