Headphone Upgrade

I haven't been very active on Sput the past 6 months or so, so I figured I'd make a list since I just got some sweet new headphones. Recently bought the Philips Fidelio X2 headphones and they're instantly the best headphones I've ever owned. They are a huge upgrade over my M50s. The great thing about them is that they don't need a crazy expensive amplifier to power them. My iphone 6 powers them just fine. It is for that reason that I chose them over the Sennheiser HD 650s, although I would love to try those at some point. They are an open headphone (bleed lots of sound) and they are quite large and heavy so they're going to be my "at-home" headphones. The M50s will still be good for when I'm on the go or in a quiet setting like a coffee shop, due to their closed backs. I also have a pair of Bose QC20i for use at work and on airplanes. The noise cancelling on these things is unrivaled imo. Plus they are the most comfortable "earbuds" I've ever worn. Anyway, I know people make these types of lists all the time, but what kind of headphones do y'all use, or do you even use headphones all that much? List is stuff I'm listening to today. Recs welcome.
A Furrow Cut Short

Black Metal / I really love Autumn Aurora and Blood on the Wells. The atmosphere on those albums....good god. I haven't checked much of their newer stuff yet tho.

Power Metal / I'm not the biggest power metal fan, but I thought The Black Halo was good so I'm giving this one a go.
3Hop Along
Painted Shut

Indie? / First time listening to this band. I remember their last album getting some love on Sput so we'll see how this one goes.
4Mumford and Sons
Wilder Mind

Folk Pop / I've never been big on these guys, but I figure I should at least give it one listen.

Britpop / Blur's newest is pretty decent, but I realized I haven't heard much of their old stuff so I figure I'll give this one a try.
6My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall

Indie / Another band I have never listened to before. They've been around for a while too.
7Hiatus Kaiyote
Choose Your Weapon

No Idea / Saw this got a good review on here, so I figured I'll check it out.
8Best Coast
California Nights

Indie / Another fairly famous band that I've never checked out.
