The best headphones under $400 are probably the HE-400i. The HE-400S is also a strong product for $300. Common headphones recommended by non-audiophiles:
The HD600/650 sucks, avoid.
Fidelios suck, avoid.
I don't know about the Blackhawks except they are reputed to have an absurd burn-in time. Widely reported to be great, but then so is the HD600 which sucks. Don't worry about the masses' opinions (who are likely have-nothing students sitting cross-legged on their tiny dorm beds posting on tablets) and instead seek out the opinion of actual audiophiles with 5-10k systems who have the proper frame of reference and experience in judging sound.
