I own a pair of Sony MDR-XD200 headphones. I purchased a pair back in '07 and it still continues to serve me well to this day. They aren't expensive so you can get them for a cheap price considering the quality. As a personal choice, I would recommend them. I typically use them when I'm on the computer listening to music, watching videos, or playing games. They are slightly more geared toward the audiophile than the casual user. The cord is 11-1/2ft (according to some online reports) though, which is way too long for what you're looking for. There are switches on both sides to switch between "Music" and "Movie" mode, with the latter having a bit more bass but the bass isn't overkill on these headphones. It has a good balance between bass and treble. You can read some feedback from Newegg that people left regarding the headphones here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826159224 This may not be what you're looking for but I figure the more feedback the better in making your decision.
Got a pair of these suckers in my iMac right now and another pair with my Turtle Beach Earforce DSS Dolby Digital sound processor for my consoles. For my home studio setup I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 380 Pro headphones. Great sound in those as well, but they get very uncomfortable after a while. Way too tight.
