No sense in owning great audio equipment if you don't at least have a decent set of headphones to monitor with. These Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones have been around for a long time and are still a very popular affordable set of cans for video shooters.
Today the Sony MDR-V6 is on sale for about 15% off typical retail price [thanks for the Tweet Dave]. Over 1100 reviews at 4.5 stars, you can find the sale following the link (click here)

On that note, this may sound quite silly, but yesterday I was working with a set of Tascam's latest TH02 Closed-Back Stylish Headphones, and was pretty blown away. We purchased a set over at NAB and didn't really think too much about them because the retail price was only around $20 dollars (found here). Crazy right? I had three other people from the crew monitor with the headphones and we were all pretty amazed at the quality and price of these new headsets from Tascam.

Checking back on the Amazon reviews, seems like everyone else shares the same opinion. I feel pretty silly for suggesting a set of $20 dollar headphones, but damn these things sound good. If they carry them at your local retailer, you should really give these a try. There's also an excellent video review over at Amazon I suggest you take a look at if you're interested (found here).
