What would be a good, reasonably priced set of professional quality headphone for a soundman and boom operator? Basically the Audio-Technica shotgun mic equivalent in headphones. B)

You can't go wrong with Sony 7506 headphones. They sound great and are an industry standard, and under 100$.

You want headphones that are preferably flat and get good mid-ranges. You don't want crappy ones that only hear lows or super ones that only hear highs.

One word of caution. Sony makes two versions of these, one in Japan and one in China. Guess which one falls apart so much easier. Make sure you are getting the made in Japan version.

AKG K240M and K271S headphones are my weapons of choice. The 240's are open back and the 271's are closed back. I use whichever is most appropriate. The 7506's are also good but I've used AKG headphones forever as reference headphones.
