They may charge an arm and a leg for Grado's, but I swear by my SR-80s.... Even if you don't read the review, I highly recommend these headphones to anyone who is serious about music.
"The Grado SR125s provide the best rock, acoustic, and vocal quality we have heard, but suffer in most electronic categories. Mild distortion was heard on the lower end, but the overall quality of the sound was great, including for gaming. The overall design of these headphones cannot be ignored. They lack in almost every category imaginable: comfort, material quality, adjustability, aesthetics, etc."
