*Didn't read the whole thread.

Anyhow, If you've got the money go for the Sennheiser HD 555 headphones. They're a bit bigger and made for studio environments, but they sound incredible.

Think I tested nearly every headphone on the market in a big music store. My favorite was the AKG K271 (from Austria) which I bought. Very neutral sound... the only negative is that you can not transport them very well and it's also not that robust as some other ENG headphones. I would buy them again.

I can actually hear the difference between various mics, whether the low-cut filter is engaged or not in the camera or the mic - not to mention distortion when overloaded, or hiss with sensitivity too low and output cranked up!
I'll second that. They are fabulous and the ease of use and comfort are great, very good sensitivity and accurate sound, what more can you want?

OK, I'll jump in.

When producing/directing in quiet environments I use the Sony MDR-7506, in somewhat noisy environments I use Sony MDR-V900, in very noisy environments I use the Etymotics ER 6c or ER 4p in ears. If in very noisy environments (think rock concert with 100 - 120db) I use a combination of the V900 and the ER4p with one side of the ER 4p partially out so that if someone wants to talk to me in person I can hear them. With wired or wireless comms I use the same combo but take out the V900 and replace it with the comm headset (usually a heavy Clear-Com).

Etymotic ER-6

I like the Etymotics a lot. Compact, stay in my ears and produce really good sound quality. Since I work mostly on my own, and often off a tripod, they give me a lot of freedom to work the camera. (I am currently shooting with a Z1 with a mattebox). They are very sturdy, I have had this pair for two years and have used them all over the planet.
