I'll second the hd 25. Apart from the beyerdynamic dt series ( far too
bulky for field recording ) these are the only headphones Ive found that
are well built enough and durable. You can replace every part and they
have made them for years. They arent made for lounging in studios or
consumer hifi listening which most heaphones are. They are however very
unforgiving and revealing of environments , giving great detail. I have
used headphones that just make things sound nice and warm , something I
dont want in field recording. I have dropped mine on many occasions and
there is nothing that wants too break, tough as old boots...
