very true, although i have read that the ATH M50 have better bass response.

I'd recommend the DT-880 600 ohm, 

 

If you want a closed cans, KNS8400, or DT-770 Pro.

 

I don't really like the M-50s, it does everything, but isn't excellent at anything.

It might help to know what source(s) your plugging the headphones into?

Sometimes adding a headphone amplifier helps the sound.

ill will be plugging them into my macbook pro and also casually listening on my iPhone so i would prefer something with less than 80 ohms.

DT150 more bass than DT250 but same flat mids and clear highs.

The dt150 and dt250 have an awkward ear cup that looks like they could get uncomfortable quickly. thanks for the suggestion

Headphones for monitoring electronic music...

1. GMP 8.35

2. Ultrasone PL/Pro-650

3. M-50

 

For monitoring acoustics, or more flat FR demands,

1. GMP 8.35

2. AKG K-240MKll

3. AKG K-271MKll

 

I fund the 8.35 to be my closed back, because they keep a good balanced between the flat FR and monitoring bass in the studio.

They are pretty comfy imo. Although some say the clamping force is a lot i find them fine for me and i have a pretty big head.

I own the DT770 pro 80ohm  and ATH 50's- I don't go near the ATH's anymore--I plan to give them away to the next homeless person I meet and think of worth.

SRH840 without a single doubt or 940

The DT770 pro's i have listened to them and the quite good for generally listening to music but they are just to bass heavy and unbalanced for monitoring, but still are very good headphones. From what i have read the SRH840's are probably one of the best flat response headphones but don't have the bass response like the ATH M50 which is more beneficial when producing electro music. So I'm most likely going to get the ATH M50s, every reviewer seem quite pleased with them. 

Thanks for all the help guys. :)
