Where's the sweet spot for headphones?

The headphone market is littered with an incredible range of options, from the throwaway garbage bundled with cheap MP3 players to audiophile earmuffs that would give Princess Leia a run for her money. So where's the sweet spot? Seriously. Where is it?

I'm looking for some high-quality headphones that deliver the best blend of impeccable sound quality and solid value. Something for a serious audio enthusiast rather than a diehard audiophile. I don't need anything wireless, nor will I be attempting to drive these with a pint-sized MP3 player. Any recommendations?
