Well I got positive experiences with regular dynamic driver (vs balanced armature) , and was impressed by the bass & soundstage especially:
the discontinued senn IE7, and the more recent yamaha eph-100. I've never tried BA.
They are signifigantly cheaper in price than the Senns or Shure mentioned, but if the are an absolute steal and underpriced, I may consider it.
The dj100 was hyped/ praised by

beyer dt 770
german maestro GMP 8.35

The ath-50 is popular, but some hate it.
