Kings nominated from this thread:

 

Audio Technica W5000
Beyerdynamic T5p
Denon AH-D7100
Fostex T50RP Mad Dog
Fostex T50RP Paradox
Fostex TH900
JVC DX1000
Kenwood KH-K1000
Ultrasone Edition 8
Ultrasone Signature Pro
AKG K550
Fostex TH600
Sony MDR-1R
Sony MDR-CD900ST
Sony MDR-Z1000/7520

Anyone want to suggest op-out any of these that are not in the "King's" league?

yup, just not in the US. They took them out of here. I wouldn't call them the kings since they're quite far away from being the top.

The ultimate king is the TH900 and them to my ears the T5p. Not yet heard TH600. As for a cheaper option the Mad Dogseems to be doing well
