Top Six FOH Headphones

A few days ago, I asked what types of headphones you use for FOH.
Then, I ran off to study up on the headphones mentioned.  I came upon a similar request in the pro-audio community about the best headphones for mixing.  Many of those folks recommended the same headphones as those here on this site.  With all that being said, here are the top recommended headphones by those both in the church and pro audio fields.
Please note that some headphones cover the ear while others are placed on the ear.  Different strokes for different folks.
