For your taste in music I'd say look at the Sony's, the DT990's/770's, and the M50's. They all provide good lows, which for most people into those genre's are looking for that over other things. 

 

The Senn's are going to leave you wanting more bass as will the AKG's, lows are not they're good point.

 

Don't have much idea about the other ones, but someone should stumble in here with more info to help you out.

favorite for what music?

favorite for aesthetics? 

Survey overly broad.

M50's are a decent choice for you probably.

 

A couple of cans could be off that list immediately if you want bass, especially 70X

 

With some amping, DT770's could top M50's, but without, I'd probably go for the Audio Technica's.

Maybe Denon D2000, but no experience with that on my behalve.

I voted ATH-M50 as they are good all-rounders and can be driven fine from an ipod or laptop. The 80ohm or 32ohm DT770 will be great from those sources too though although the 250ohm might be lacking a little without a little extra amping. I actually have a pair of HFI 780 on their way to me now so could offer you some impressions when they arrive if you haven't pulled the trigger by then.

I take it that noise leakage in and out isn't a big deal?

 

I'd add the Alessandro MS1i to your list.

Lol, it would be nice, but it's not at all as important as the sound.

 

And I'll look into that :O

 

 

....I decided to before this post xP And yeah, from things I've read they sound good, will continue to read about them and whatnot. But for the relatively cheap price of 110, I think the $150 M50's might be all around better, but who knowwwwsss.


I can't say I've heard the M50.  But the MS1i is astonishingly close in quality to the HD 600 - except for the soundstage.  The MS1i have slightly more emphasis on the upper mids, whereas the HD 600 emphasize the lower mids more.

 

I would imagine to those who have heard both (MS1i & M50), it comes down to open vs. closed and individual preference for sound.

I'm enjoying my HD650 and also tried D2000 but had to return them cause on some tracks bass was positioned away back from the rest of music. Also you need to burn in D2000 for at least 20 hours before making decision if the bass is ok.

D2000.  Good bass, does not need an amp to sound good, hardly sounds like a closed headphone (usually a big minus, but not with the Denons, as they are partially open).
