    Some sennheisers would be best in your price range, but like others have said you don't really need to be spending $500+ on headphones.

    Honestly, I think the best thing you can do to get good at mixing and mastering is to have a wide range of speakers/headphones you can listen to you mixes on since your music will be played on a lot of different devices, cheap and expensive. After I mix in headphones I normally listen on a portable bluetooth speaker, normal earbuds, my car and my studio monitors to get a feel for what stands out on different devices. That is what I think helped improve my ear the most.

    Send those back, save up another $100 and purchase some Beyerdynamic's.

    I cant post a link yet, but the DT 1770 Pro's are amazing. Super flat with an amazing frequency response. You can mix for guinea pigs on these things. Look up guinea pig hearing range and you'll know what I mean

    Super comfy as well, can wear them for hours without hurting your ears.

    I did some research on headphones in my first year of University, and imo, Beyerdynamic Headphones are the best pick, and stay very true to how it sounds on other devices (e.g. speakers, car, tv, crappy earphones etc).
    Other viable options also used by industry professionals are Sennheisers like the one MasterMelodies mentioned, or AKG studio headphones

    Personal Recommendation:
    Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro
    Beyerdynamic DT1990

    All these comments are spot on, also you should check Open Back vs Closed Back Headphones and hear what fits you best for your needs.

    open back senn's are the best I've used personally

    whatever model you can afford. make sure you match the impedance to your sound medium.

    they blow the audio technica ath-m50x out of the water IMO

    also they are easier on your ears, being open back
