The HD25 have been popular for many years because they are that good, especially for rock and pop. Very forward. Soundstage is quite lacking though. They compliment modern compressed recordings. Bass is pure.
Vmoda would be good. I have the ATH ESW9 which I like to recommend. I find them smooth and versatile. Some may disagree on versatile. M50 not very portable. There's always good ol Senn HD25 variations. Beyer DT1350 as well.
