Hey, fuck the Solo HD's they suck. Go for the Beats Mixr's, best headphones ever. Period. I'm not exaggerating, they pratically are perfect and have the NEW controltalk, opposed to Solo's. And you can twist the earcups so you can hear people talk while you listen to music.
There's loads of other features too: Get them, you can't go wrong, i've had mine for a couple of weeks now and they are just too good.
I would HIGHLY recommend these guys. Haven't let me down yet, I even use them at the gym. Amazing sound quality that won't break the bank http://m.cnet.com/reviews/klipsch-im.../33577358?ds=1

adam.posey: I guess you're just SO FILTHY! HA! Badum ching.
I'd buy Bose or Sennheiser, better audio quality, Beats are overpriced.
Klipsch and AIAIAI headphones are always brilliant.
audio-technica. Response levels seem to be equalized. Zane helped me out on this purchase. But yeah Senns are boss as well.
Im using a Sony MDR-V500DJ in the booth. Average quality cheap good for beating around and djing. Not home/studio quality though.
Sennheiser HD650s changed the way I enjoy music, and changed the way I engineer and mix music. In the last two years that I've had them, my critical listening has improved incredibly (aided, in part, by just how revealing and detailed the HD650s are) and I am a better mixer for it. I've also come across a number of magazine reviewers (Sound On Sound for example) and a number of working professionals (including Mastering engineers) who rely on HD650s for their headphone monitoring. I've never read a bad thing about them, and I very rarely see any other products compared with them (occasionally some AKG K models).
Please excuse me, as I could discuss audio gear all day. In short: Sennheiser HD650s are beautiful.

I had senns and lost them (fucking expensive headphones to just up and fucking lose BTW) and what I didn't realize about them is that they're not very bassy. Didn't really know the difference between studio and personal until then. So if your looking some straight badass headphones sennheiser might not be the best. But for studio none better. Had the HD280's.
If you want super loud, low, rattle your skull sub, probably look elsewhere (some in-ear phones might provide this, due to the fact that they actually make a physical connection with your ear canal to aid the bass response).
On a slightly unrelated note, yesterday I tried my friend's "JBL On Stage" iPod dock, and I was astonished at how good such a small set of speakers sounded. I've never really used an iPod dock, the last one I remember using was tinny and cheap sounding (like bad laptop speakers). This was pretty astonishing. I'm considering buying one to use as a reference for playing mixes on.
For non-noise cancelling, go with the Koss Portapros. They may leak a bit of noise, and they have no isolation, but you can get em on Amazon for thirty or forty bucks. Sound quality, IMO, is better than Beats Solos and rivals many $100-$200 headphones. Furthermore, they come with lifetime warranty AND are from a trusted manufacturer, in fact the company that invented the stereo headphones. They're pretty highly regarded in the audiophile community.
