Hellooo all!! I currently am using the KRK kns8400's Headphones and a pair of KRK RP6 monitors for referencing my mixes as well as listening. I produces and listen to primarily electronic music such as trance, progressive, some house and dubstep, etc. I've heard the Beyer Dt770 pro's are good for that kinda stuff, and I have owned them, but I ended up returning them because the bass got too obnoxious and "in your face" after burn-in and quite honestly, it gave me bad headaches really quickly ahaha... I was hoping that you guys would have some good suggestions that would prove to be an improvement considering my current inventory and needs for accuracy/overall enjoyment of music in the price range of ~$200. I have heard good and bad things about the ath-m50's, senn hd380's, and Shure SRH840's.
Suggestions on Over-Ear (prefferably) Studio Monitoring Headphones around $200? (give or take)

It's 150$ over budget and discontinued, but the AKG K601 is absolutely amazing for studio monitoring, comfortable as kittens resting on your ears(although not as good as dt990 velour), and semi open (hope thats not a deal breaker) they also need an amp, but from what i hear, mixing boards and good interfaces have enough power for them.
