I bought some Audio Technica's ATH-AD900 last year but tbh I'm regretting it as the right side has developed a faint, but distinct buzz. Any recommendations other than those mob?

Yeah, the Logi G930's are 'ok' (I'm not a huge fan because of the 'closed ear' nature of em) as headphones go.

I'd be quite confident to say they are amongst the best as far as Headsets go, but I doubt they'd stack up to even a 'middle of the road' set of Sennheisers.

It all depends, if you want 'virtual surround' and a microphone (none of which the OP mentioned) I'd say chase the G-930's, but for music/movies I'd say the AT's is where it's at for the most part.

Can anyone clear up for me, I'm familiar with 'headphone amps' and some of the reasoning behind doing that, but what I'm after is a decent set of headphones that i can use to listen to music, and (despite it being only a rare occurance) also hook straight up to an iPod/iPhone?
(to the AD700 owners, 1) do they work well in that kind of 'mobile' (ie non-beefed up amplifier) setup? and 2) are they as frail as they look?)

I had the ATH-700's (open ones ?) and they were pretty good, very comfortable - but they have a flimsy build which eventually led to their destruction whilst transporting them to a lan party.

My previous 'hardcore headphone know it all' work mate advised me to get a set of ultrasone's, which I did, picked a up a set of Proline 650's 4 years ago. Still going strong. They come with an extra set of ear cushions which you can replace when the originals detiriorate, which I have just done.

My advice is to research online, read reviews and then decide on what you want based on that.

edit ha, you already got some i see.

i also have the ath-700's and i love them. very comfy and awesome sound but just lack the bass a bit but can be fixed with equaliser. idont find them flimsy i think they would break as easily as any other set of headphones. well worth the money.

One thing both those pics say is too have a look at the Koss ksc-75's. I agree BIG TIME very clear, basically zero distortion and punchy bass.

they are awesome for walking around mine have even survived a round or two in the washing machine / dryer.
