    What's your price range?

    I have some beyerdynamic DT-770 that's pretty nice. I have them on me most of the day without issues.

    I like the Sony MDR-7506's. There about $100. I highly recommend them. Link

    Check out the Sennhiesser ranges as well, get the most expensive you can afford.

    I also like the Shure in-ear monitors as well, they go about £100 over here though.

    I have the Sennheiser HD595's and I got them for half price at play.com a while back, they are the third best high end 'phones you can get and I have to say that they are comfortable and the sound they reproduce is quality compared to every headphone I've owned (previously Sennheiser, Sony, Technics etc.) compared to my old mid range Senheiser's they are a world apart (can't remember the product names/numbers of previous 'phones as I just tend to hoof them out when they break)
