I'd go with the UE 6000 or the CAL!

 

You probably should mention what will be driving these cans and whether or not you will be using an amp.

I don't have an amp, but I use a Creative SB Audigy2 ZS Plat. sound card. Are there any cheap amps you could recommend? I've never used one before so I don't know what I'm really looking for.

I don't know your sound card.

 

The two cans I recommended don't need an amp.

+1 on the UE6000's.

So do the UE6000's have good mid/highs with good bass? Do they fit most of my preferences?

 

Edit: Most of the reviews on here are saying they have mediocre upper mids/highs and hissing.

Slight hiss when the ANC is on. The mids and bass are great. The treble is good, it's just recessed. Dark sounding cans for sure.

Are any of the other headphones I listed any better? Are the UE6000's the best out of my list for the music I listen to or any others I haven't listed?

NVXes should be pretty damn good for their price. Having fairly neutral sound signature (I have HM5, but sonically they should be the same) they don't have outstanding bass (not lacking, just balanced) straight out of the box, but they respond to equalization well.

Read about them here:

They are currently at close out prices--while they last.

Says they're similar to beats in feel when wearing them and beats feel like total junk.

When you use them without noise canceling on, they sound nothing like beats or bass head lite cans for that matter.

I meant in their feel on your head, not sound quality. How comfortable are they really?

Whoever told you the NVXs weren't for extended use is wrong, because they're by far the most comfortable cans on your list. Their sound signature is not meant for your genre of music though. I recommend Sennheiser HD518 or the Sennheiser HD280 Pro. The 518s are semi-open so they leak a bit of sound. They sound great and have been on sale recently for as low as $65. Go for the 280s if you need closed headphones but the 518s are generally better for home use.

I find them to be very comfortable, but of course headphone comfort is a very individual thing.
