Best headphones for making music with??

ive allways used Sennheiser HD25 for making music while im on tour etc but been thinking of trying something different. what would you guys recommend for music production, mainly hiphop , pop, dance related music. i need something that comes as close to a good studio sound as possible, somethign i can trust enough to bring into studio for mixing after without it sounding too different from what i expected. i know its hard with headphones but whats the best stuff out there for this??? thanks!

love. johan

Any particular price range??

But IMO, some of the best for the money are the Sony 7506. I LOVE em, and they are considered "industry standard" by many. Durable, comfortable, Pretty flat response, but enuff bass to hear what u need to hear, particularly in hip hop/ ect.

cant recommend them highly enuff

+1.

I actually use my 7506 to mix with too now, as I haven't had monitors in 2 years. I've got to learn them so well after owning them for 10 years and just adjust accordingly. Mixes translate great. Excellent cans.
