Can someone show me where I said anything about the PS500?  I don't remember having ever said that.   In general I think the SR60 is the best value headphone Grado makes, and the 225 the best sounding.    Haven't heard any of the e series yet.
 Sure.  42.
I think I need to say that imbalances in mid to low frequencies in my IEM measurements need to be considered somewhat suspect.  I try VERY hard to ensure a good tip seal in the ears of my head, but it's very hard to be certain. The dummies ear canals are usually somewhere between the medium and small size tips shipped with IEM products, and getting a seal is sometimes very difficult.  When I do see an imbalance (and it's very easy for me to see as I seat the tips with 30H...
Sounds good to me. In!
Thanks for your suggestions, guys. 
I'm curious what you guys think are the competing headphones in this class?   Fostex 600 and 900, T1, Alpha Prime/Dog. What else that sounds really good between $500 and $1000 circumaural, sealed.
Yup. I'm in Bozeman as is HeadRoom. Go visit their store on Main St. downtown. It's fun.   And Todd the Vinyl Junkie lives in Three Forks 30 Miles west of here.    I know there's a couple Head-Fiers around, not enough for a meet though...well, maybe there is, but we haven't tried.   Geez, maybe I should try to have a montana meet. Hm.
Yep. And their internal software is much more challenging. 
 Not sure it answers your question exactly, but I did an article showing the Harman curve compensating a variety of cans.  I think the Harman curve had the treble too depressed, and the bass possible a tad high. But it was a preliminary curve, I don't think they've published a final curve yet.
Don't know what makes you think that, Bigshot.     Glitch, I'm afraid it's quite complicated and not very well studied yet. Both Sean Olive at Harman and Rowan Williams at Philips have told me they believe there are differences in target response at the ear drum between headphone types, but they don't know what it is or exactly why it exists. And if they're perplexed and curious, I'm certainly in no position to pose an explanation.    It's a mystery at this point.
