Gustav Holst's "The Planets" suite is a popular choice. The different movements provide a pretty wide range of sonic characteristics that are good for checking out overall orchestral presentation. I am a fan of Neptune and Uranus. The recordings by Boult, Bernstien, and Dutoit are all well-respected.

They appear to be the same size driver as the prestige series, perhaps a couple millimeters smaller. I think it is just the smaller enclosure making the driver look smaller though. EDIT: For my fellow modders, these things look like they come apart very easily for modding so recabling should be a snap. The driver is held to the chamber by 4 snaps which I bet could be jimmied to free the driver from its plastic prison of stock-cable-ness.
Hah, now I will feel bad if yours end up on the for sale forum in a week I will share a few qualities about the sonics, since I really like them quite a lot. These are a much different sound from my (heavily modded) 125s. The bass goes DEEP, much deeper than I have ever heard from a grado. Overall, I would say there is a bit more midbass than the 125s but it is the deep bass where there really is a huge difference. It doesn't go quite as low as my HD25s, but it...

I own SR-125s. These are difficult to compare since they are a totally different style, but I would say they have more clamping force and the earpads are quite nice. The band nestles around the ear reasonably comfortable IMO, though I have never worn this type of headphone before so I take it there is a bit of adjustment. To answer your question, I would say yes they are comfortable but the band takes a bit of adjusting to if you have never worn the behind the head...
The earphones don't sit quite as well on the ears quite as well if you rotate the band up. Still sound the same though. They definitely feel like they were meant to have the band where it is in the pic, or perhaps up a little. Keep in mind the collar on my shirt is a bit high. As I sit here it doesn't interfere with the collar that I can feel, and is comfy. EDIT: My earlobs aren't pinched or anything
Just got mine, too! Thanks Grado! My initial impressions are pretty good. Headband is simple, but feels quite sturdy. They have a bit of clamping force, probably more than some people would like but for a portable I imagine it makes them more stable and I don't find it uncomfortable at all. Fit is comfy, and required relatively little adjustment to find a good position. Earpads are of a style similar to the comfies, nice and soft. Cable is quite short, 3-4 ft in...

Actually, I am surprised my intermediate dynamics professor never asked us that question in our homework. He was a little crazy like that
