Shameless self bump since I changed the price and added an E7 just to get rid of some stuff.  
Selling my one time used pair of 598's. Bought them a few months ago and just haven't used them other than once, the day I received them. I'm also including my mint Fiio E7 portable DAC and a Sennheiser desk/shelf hanger. I'll cover shipping in the U.S. but overseas buyers will have to pay a bit for shipping.   I also have these listed on eBay right now without the E7, so you can purchase them from me on there or through here. It doesn't really matter to me either...
Shure SRH440.   I wouldn't reccommend any open headphone to anyone who plans on wearing them out in public. I can't stand when I can hear other people's music, so I assume nobody wants to hear mine either. The Shure's have excellent isolation, cost less than $100, and are foldable for portability. If you end up choosing them make shure you order the replacement ear cushions for the 840's. The ones that come on the 440 from the factory are terrible.
+1 on the Beyer's, they're the most comfortable I've owned.  
I always use the equalizer in iTunes, but the kind of music I listen too has a habit of being poorly mixed, mastered, etc.   I think everything sounds terrible without it, not sure how you guys do it.
  Thanks, I tried my best to diversify so I could get a good taste of the different styles and sounds.  The desk isn't actually custom built at all it's just some cheapy pile I bought from a local auction for $30. I think it's just a Wal-Mart brand one that you buy and assemble yourself. The openings are great for storing cables, 6.3mm adapters, cases, etc. and the edges work great for the headphone clamps I bought.
  Thanks for pointing this out! I just did the reverse quarter mod on my yellow Sennheiser pads, they still aren't amazingly comfortable but it definitely helped quite a bit. I'm guessing my problem is the fact that I wear glasses, so I'll just have to get over it.
If you want deep bass stay away from the Sennheisers, they are probably the least bassy pair of headphones I've ever owned. That's not to say they are bad, but the Grados will be better in your situation. Also, I don't know if this is a problem for anyone else, but, I can't wear Grado headphones for an extended period of time. After about 30 minutes my ears get really hot and start to hurt for whatever reason.
I'm looking at both of them right now next to each other and they really aren't that much bigger. But, I suppose if you want to be able to carry them around every little bit matters. Mine just sit on their hanger when I'm not using them so size is a non-factor for me.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. I have both and I find them somewhat similar, the Beyer's are MUCH more comfortable as well.
