The ATH-M50 is certainly popular. Some report that there is a newer version of it with less bass(white box?), while the older version has more bass. I guess the new version is a true neutral studio monitor.

They also have the 700MK2's which feature a removable cord. Sigh... too many options!

At first the removable cord sounds like a good feature, however sometimes extra cords are expensive. Extra cords might also be hard to find, and if you don't buy them when you buy the headphone, you might not be able to get them later(or they might be priced very high). Keep in mind that removable cords are almost always proprietary, and within a brand a cord with that connector might just be used for one or a few models. Removable cords would be great if they used a standard inexpensive cord.

The nice thing about the 700MK2s is that they come with two cords, so if one breaks you always have the other.

Now looking at the K181DJs. They're available on Amazon for ~$100. Removable cord, metal headband, foldable, etc.
