I'm thinking of picking the Signature DJ up as my first seriously high end headphone. I have got the V Moda M-100 right now, but I want to upgrade and maybe create a home set up as well. I'm thinking of just starting with the Modi and Magni for now or is there a better cheap alternative for these for computer listening.
I listen to artists like Solar Fields, Leftfield, Shpongle, Noisia, Pendulum, Justice, Purity Ring, Boards of Canada, Massive Attack, Paul van Dyk, Mike Oldfield, Juno Reactor, Infected Mushroom, Hallucinogen, Four Tet among others. I also like some pop artists like Ellie Goulding, Charli XCX, Kerli, T.a.T.u, Janelle Monae, Natalia Kills, Rita Ora etc
Outside of that, I'm not into Rock music much, not do I really ever listen to classical or Jazz.
Great music taste man :) Very similar here.
2013 has been great with the BoC album, new Four Tet album is awesome and of course Shpongle. I've seen Shpongle live a couple of times with the full band, amazing..
This is why I'm also looking into these headphones I need to go try them out.
The isolation and portability are the key factors to use on the go and in the office.
My first truly high end HP is the Fostex TH600 (I don't count HE-400 - good but blown away by the Fostex), and I can highly recommend those for your music tastes too if you're mainly listening at home (they're not portable they are kinda semi-open). They can be had new for 800 or less from Price Japan or normal Amazon now.
Ps. some other great recent artists/bands/albums I've been digging on the Fostex... they are making me seek out and explore lots of new stuff (and high quality FLACs and such more), and often genres I didn't use to as much.. vocals sound amazing too.
Atoms For Peace - Amok
Arctic Monkeys - AM
Memotone (William Yates)
Hiatus Kaiyote (awesome soul/funk band, they're on the GTA5 soundtrack)
Chillstep like Phaeleh, Synthetic Epiphany
Trentemoeller's new album
Leatherette (Ninja Tune label same as Four Tet, full of gems)
Emika (as above)
If you're into experimental electronica (IDM, Glitch etc) I highly recommend checking out Enig'matik Records. Based here in Australia

If you love your bass and like the M-100, I give the Sig DJ my highest recommendation. I have been a HUGE fan of the M-100 since it was released, yet I listen almost exclusively to the Sig DJ now as I would describe the Sig DJ as a much more refined and spacious M-100 with superior detail and resolution on par with other summit-fi headphones.
