If you like the sound of Beats you're probably not going to like anything that isn't like Beats, which is anything that people who say they suck use.
Note that in some cases "accurate" and "accurate" are not always the same thing, and neither are most things known for accuracy actually accurate. The first means it's about as flat as technology permits; the second often means "syrupy sweet audio sauce" with the highs rolled off and the bass slightly ticked up, and the third case refers to how people talk about very accurate and detailed headphones but if you took measurements what they think is detail is a peak or mountain range in the treble. The second case is for people with hyperacusis, the third is for people with usually age-based hearing loss (ie you gradually lose hearing response in the high frequencies as you age).
In any case, if you still really want to get your feet wet, look into these:
Choose S03-H01-E05-C05 config
Grain Audio OEHP
Thanks for all of the suggestions. I love the idea of modular headphones, that seems like something to look into. I'm thinking about starting another thread though about lossless music files. I'm not sure if it really is the headphones that are in need of an upgrade. Thanks for all of the help!
