OP- if you are still in the search for headphones, I would suggest the Beyer Dynamic DT880 pro to be worthy of consideration. They provide an excellent reference for late night listening/ work and I find few adjustments needed when material is played back over the monitoring system. I haven't needed to complete a mix solely with these yet, however I wouldn't hesitate to do so.
They are also by a fair margin the most comfortable headphone I've ever used, an important consideration for long sessions.
Good luck with your choice

Cool looking forward to the review.

I can't help but think the company looks very gimmicky

100% agree... Was stunned how good these were especially considering the price :D

IMO HD25's sounded too boxey for production but to echo what everyone else has said, they are the daddy for playing live!
