If you want what audio engineers and musicians use, Guitar Center has PLENTY of quality stuff from Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Beyerdynamics, Klipsch, and even AKG.

I hate all headphones (from an audio quality perspective). But the best I've ever heard are a nice pair of Stax electrostats that I had a custom built tube headphone amp for. They were "OK", but nothing compared to listening in my main system through my klipschhorns (so why bother with the headphones?).
