My personal fave as far as having actually used them goes would probably be the UR40 both because they have gorgeous sound and feel epic on the ears, however based on what I've read, the Portapro/Sportapro and KSC35 are some of the best bang-for-the-buck headphones out there, the KSC75 being the best.

Also, the MDR-V6/7506 has a good rep in the recording industry, and the ZX700/7520 are supposed to be good headphones as well. The Senns are take it or leave it, and I know the ATH-M50s are good as far as the ATs go because I tried one of my buds' ATH-M50s and they sounded really nice, DK about the ATH-M30s or M10s as far as sound and build quality goes, but I bet they're really good too.

As for the Plugs, I've read that you can make them decent earbuds with some mods.

And there's no specific music genre listed.
