You cannot go wrong with those...
Much more comfy than my Sennheiser HD380 Pro...

I've never tried them but they only have 44ohms and the Senns have 64. Also, people report that they click when you move and get hot after a few hours of use.. I agree the Senns are very tight but my ears only start hurting after 6+ hours. They do very well at canceling out outside noise.
When it comes down to it, all that matters is what sounds/feels good to you.

Sony MDR-7506 are worth a try. Used by David Gilmour, lots of studios in San Francisco, and me (with immense enjoyment).

Are you referring to the Shures? Yes, they do click when you move. It never really bothered me before, but NOW it will! :-)

I must just learn to sit perfectly still ...

Keep in mind that high price means nothing. Like any gear, there is often better stuff at lower prices than you'd think, which is why I ended up with the KRK Rokit 5s and Sennheiser HD280 pro headphones.

The ATH-M50s are pretty superb they have a decently flat response and good isolation and most importantly in my opinion they are actually comfortable to wear.

I have ATH-M30's and I forget I'm wearing them despite the good isolation. I understand the ATH M50's are even better in sound and build quality terms so I'll probably be going with those next.
