Others might say the Sony CD3000 because it's analytical and it is also very detailed.

I think there were a few other posts in the past on this subject (Use the friggin' search tool, people

The Sony CD-3K's are no good for studio work because they're not closed back. They don't isolate the room at all.

Besides the Sony MDRV6/7506, Beyer DT-250/80 and Sennheiser HD0280 are worth considering.

If you want the best, for studio work, get the Etymotic ER-4's with custom ear molds.

Whatever headphone you use, get to know it well.

Hmm . . . I think I made the same mistake of recommending the CD3k's to someone else on this board (in a different thread) who inquired about studio headphones, and I think Kwkarth corrected me then too. Well, I don't think I'll recommend these again, and truthfully, I really don't know crap about studio listening, and I don't know anything about the Sony CD3k's, so what am I doing recommending them? I don't know. Well, from my learned knowledge afte reading around these forums, (but not experience) I think the V6's are the most affordably capable studio headphones, while I think that IMO, an Etymotic would be best, with the Beyer's next in the overall scheme of things.

And the newest Stax headphones apparently serve well as studio phones, according to Wes Phillips' Onhifi. A pair of the 3030s will cost you about $900 including amplifier from EIFL (give them a call during Japanese daylight hours).

These guys at Ear-Q are talking about using the Sennheiser HD280 Pro for their reference hearing analyser product. They claim they meet all ANSI sound reproduction standards. Sounds like there's not a lot of headphones that meet that standard of accuracy. That's got to be a plus for a studio phone.
