Someone who bought active noise cancellation headphones is pretty unlikely to get cans as open as grados, especially given his earlier points about a noisy computer. My general recommendations are A900s if you're not going to be moving around with them, but the recommendation may change based on the questions I asked above.

Does that narrow down the search anymore? Not at all. Tell us what you want to use them for (eg music and genre like jazz), where you want to use them (bus/home/walking), source (iPod/sound card/headphone amp). Then we'll be able to help more.

Thanks, i've updated the entry
So long as he won't be moving around while he wears them, i'd suggestion getting A500s. They're US$109, plus maybe another $10 in shipping. They're great headphones sound wise, very comfortable too.
I owned the Beyers briefly, their comfort's reasonable, not as good as A900 of course, but not bad. I think the 25s are supraaural, which I find less comfortable. For portable use i'd go with canal phones, MD33s if you don't need isolation, Ety 6i's if you do.
I think your original idea of V6's is good. They're about as industry standard as cans get for pro work, and they're meant to be very robust.
