Sub 100 Pounds:
Add the Sony MDR V6/7506, Panasonic RP-HTX7, Sennheiser HD418/428/438/448, JVC HA RX700/900.

Midrange:
Add the AKG K141/240/271 (Professional high impedance versions if I'm correct: Monitor, DF.), Pioneer Monitor 10R, JVC HA DX-series (I have the 3).

I have no experience with high end models.
