Closed Back Studio Headphones...

Hi all. I am looking to buy a new set of closed-back headphones for tracking all instruments and vocals, and for reference monitoring/mixing. Based on what I've read and the reviews I take with a grain of salt; I've narrowed my search down to Shure SRH1540 or Neumann NDH20. Does anyone have experience with both of these, or some recommendation? My budget is no more than $500. Surely $500 will get me a decent set of headphones! I like that the SRH1540 come with an extra cable and ear pads as I'm shure (haha) those will wear out.
Thank you for your time.
Cheers!

for tracking I am happy with these: HD280. Good enough and isolate well. Can afford a few pairs for the others in the room

For mixing I use HD600

I give 280s to other people, but I wouldn't use them if I was recording myself and needed to make decisions.
