    Audio Technica usually has some under $100 but dunno for over $150. I usually mix/master on speakers.

    This will sound slightly unorthodox, but I recommend a 'crap' pair of Audio-Technica ath-m40x. Why recommend crap headphones? Because... even if you fork out 10,000 for a pair, they still won't be truly flat. However... you can get some very nifty software from SonarWorks called 'Reference 3'. They have analysed the frequency curves of a large number of headphones, providing an average calibration for each model (you can pay for a custom calibration but imo the average is fine).

    The software is 99 euros, the headphones cost me around 75. You can demo it for free; check if they have an average calibration for your headphones, if they have, trust me CHECK THIS SOFTWARE OUT.

    Everyone I've demo'd it to has been left slack-jawed at how it can turn a nasty crap pair of headphones into a beautiful, flat listening experience. And no, I don't work for Sonarworks, but I have bought the software and use it daily as second reference / nightly as a means to produce without pissing off the neighbours.

    If you produce primarily on headphones, you NEED this software.

    I got the SONY MDR-7506, they are nice!! I'm currently without sound monitors and I'm only mixing and composing with him. Got not to complain about.

    Im using my Sony MDR-7506 and I love them. They are the perfect crisp addition to my Yamaha Hs7 monitors!
