Beyer DT's are classics and no brainers , after the price drop of the DT series you can't go wrong with either .....

According to your preference you'll like the 880

I've got an HD25. I think it's good but not as interesting as the Amperior. Ultimately I've listened to and bought a lot of the best closed headphones and vastly prefer the Yamaha pro 400 over all of em. If you search it, I've written a lot of detailed opinions on the different phones I've experienced. What's your source? The 400s are incredibly efficient and can get pretty loud off of my Sansa Clip.

Philips Fidelio X1

Looks like you're on the wrong side of the forums friend.

"STOP! Post your "Help!", "Recommendations", "Looking for..." and other question threads in the new Help & Recommendations Forum not here." is at the top of the page, but anyways.

Do you need them to be portable, or are they going to be for home use, do you prefer on ear or over ear (or you don't mind)?

The NAD Viso HP50 has received such universally amazing reviews that I would consider slightly expanding my budget to accommodate them.

The Philips X1 are pretty damn amazing having tried them out recently. Those might be my next pair of cans.

 

The X1 are $230+ at the moment.

I'm gonna agree with everyone here and say that the X1 is pretty much your best bet. It's essentially the best midfi headphone you can find. The comfort and build quality is also exceptional. One would need to spend MUCH more to get noticeable increases in sound quality.

After listening to the ATH-M50, Beyerdynamic DT-770, Grado SR-125 and HD-650, my Rock enthusiast co-workers mostly bought the DT-770 for themselves.  

 

One guy got the DT-880.

 

(This unscientific sample doesn't correct for the price differences.  There was a flurry of activity after I started listening to my Lyr at work.)

 

I would say the DT-770 has more bass impact than the DT-880, but the detail and timbre of the bass is better on the '880.

 

I think you'll find either one a nice step up from the ATH-M50.  I haven't heard the M80, HD25, X1 or others mentioned in the thread.
