These? (http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/audio-mp3/portable-audio-mp3/headphones/sennheiser-hd201-headphone/prod89365.html). I've got a similar pair of senheisers, and they're pretty good.

Two questions though.
What is you budget?
Do you plan on listening for a long time in one go?

In-ear or on-ear?

I would like on ear or over ear. No more than $130 and will be listening for long periods at a time.

I would also like them to have a 40mm driver

Worth noting that the g930 is a wireless? Gaming headset that has a permanently attached mic and uses virtual 7.1 surround sound. It cannot be used with iPods as it doesn't have a standard headphone jack. It uses USB only.

I just bought a pair of these (http://www.shureonline.co.nz/index.php/ps_alias/shureproductdetail/pi_categoryid/1/ps_stockcode/SRH940), they're pretty good...perhaps a bit out of the price range though, and no good for your dubstep. ;)

If the budget streched a little these (http://www.sony.co.nz/product/mdr-v55)are very nice, IMO a lot better than the Sennheiser's you get for the same money. 40mm driver and massive input power.

Beats are terrible at any price.

I wouldn't recommend them if they were free.

I use Sennheiser. They make some of the best Headphones. Perfect sound for a relatively cheap price.

I have to agree with Wratterus - Sony make some good professional-type headphones

I use Sony MDR-7506 (very long coiled lead). They're about 10 years old but you can still get replacement earpads

Here is the Wikipedia reference to the Sony MDR-7506:

"The Sony MDR-V6 was superseded in the mid-1990s by the Sony MDR-7506 with only minor cosmetic differences such as the latter being provided with a gold plated headphone connector, in addition to replacing the samarium-cobalt magnet utilized for the MDR-V6[11] with the slightly more powerful neodymium magnet for the MDR-7506.[12] The MDR-7506 listed a flat frequency response of 10 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Intended for professional use, the MDR-7506 was priced higher as it carried a more complete warranty, with fuller support in parts and service.

"In 1997, EQ magazine wrote, "Most people will use Sony MDR-V6 or similar headphones, such as the professional version Sony MDR-7506 or Koss Pro-4A. These Sony headphones have a reputation for loud sound and for blocking out at least some outside noise.[13] A 2001 web audio book listed the MDR-7506 as "the industry favorite".[14] Similarly, a 2007 book on podcasting technique suggested the MDR-7506 as "the favorite among broadcasting professionals" at $100.[15] Cliff Truesdell, in listing "moderately priced" headphones for digital audio production, started with the "highly recommended" MDR-7506 followed by the MDR-V600, and then other offerings by companies such as Sennheiser and Audio-Technica.[16]"
