um maybe you should specify what your budget is?

If it's high enough you can't go wrong with a Sennheiser HD600 and a decent amp.

^ agreed, IMO the V6 is your best bet. I'm not sure, however, about the cheapest way for those of you in Canada to get them. Anyone know?

Beyer 250-80. Bass not as low as the V6s, but IMHO tighter, less boomy. Great isolation and comfort from the velour pads. Both can be powered by a portable, but an amp brings them to another level.

Won't go wrong with either.

the beyer is out of your price range, and the v6's are inferior in sound . . . to the sennheiser HD-280's. The 280's are great with hip hop, and they isolate the best of the bunch. They also work really well for positioning when playing computer games. They also cost about $85-100

I'd love to see more actual comparisons of the HD280 to the V6 and the DT250. I have the latter two, but haven't heard the 280; but from the descriptions of them I've read, it seems like the "best" would depend on people's preferences.

agreed, but for positional gaming most feel that the v6 is superior.
