The best all-around headphones I've ever used are Beyer DT 880 and DT 990. A lot of people like the 880's more, but I just sounds more fun on my DT 990. Try to find a store where you can test run some headphones with your mp3 player!
Just keep in mind the 880's are semi-open and the 990's are fully open. Pick up the 770s for a closed set. Pay attention to which ohm rating you get with these. It ranges from 32obm - 600ohm. If you're running it from your comps onboard or a midrange soundcard, I'd get the 80 ohm ones.

The ATH M50's aren't bad either. I picked up my DT770s for comfort first and good quality audio second.
