Of course, you have the current bunch of Stax headphones too which vary in price from hundreds to a few thousand if you factor in the amp you need to drive them.

Horribly silly thread, as a headphone business owner and long time enthusiast your not going to get anywhere with these questions. If you're actually looking to pick up some quality headphones you need to start with two highly regarded phones the HD-650 from Sen and the Grado GS-1000 (or RS-1). These are very much on different ends of the spectrum, whichever phones you prefer will give you a good starting point for choosing the right headphones for you. I can give you a head start and tell you IMO the Grado series provides a warm, front seat concert feel, and the HD-650 are a more rounded headphone aiming towards audio reproduction.
Also I should add you could have the best or most expensive (two different things mind you) headphones in the world and they'll sound like crap if your not plugging them into the right equipment.
Check out Head-Fi forums, you will find a lot of contradicting information since everyone has sound preferences. You'll need to read a lot of different reviews/opinions to give you the best unbiased idea, but I'd say that's the most wealthy online headphone information databases around. The first is personal experience.
If you were just asking this question to be silly, then you did a good job
