Can't go wrong with HD25's mate.
For general listening & DJ'ing they're ideal.

Production wise, you'll be fine writing with them, however I wouldn't advise using them for mixdowns.

I had hd25 for 2 years now, they are great for DJing, but i would not recommend them for production/gaming/listening for long time in a row, they will cause ear fatigue really fast

Also, I just get DT990 pro, and i must say, that they are awesome, comfortable and sound is amazing. You can feel ear fatigue after long production session, but they are more ear friendly than hd25

I have the Beyer Dynamics DT770, combined with spectrum analyzers I can get nice mixes out of them, the clarity seems to stand out much than my monitors but I have KRKs :)

I use hd 25's to produce, but my ears get tired really quickly using them and the frequency response is not great if i remember there's a big dip in the top end somewhere. I'm gonna get a pair of yamaha hs7's soon but I'm gonna be living in a flat next year so i'm really after a better and more comfortable pair of cans for production.

I'm using Sennheiser HD280 pros. They sound great to my ears, unforgiving on the treble, present sub and they feel nice.

Also, a tip here:

There are about 47372727 different opinions on headphones. Why not to first figure out who in your opinion have the best mixdowns. Then go find what cans those artists are using?

For djing, hd25, obviously. Music production I would strongly suggest getting yourself to a shop, take some tunes and listen to them. For me personally, I have focal spirit pro, which I think are fooking amazing.
