1) beyer dt 880
2) sony cd1700
3) grado sr-60

very close between cd1700 and the sr-60.. the sr-60s are a bit more fun, but the cd1700s isolate some and have a fairly decent soundstage.

I purchased the headphones I have for different purposes, so it's easy to rank them:

Sennheiser HD650+Zu (Critical listening, ultimate fidelity, balance & refinement)

Grado SR-60 (First quality headphones I got, chosen over HD600 and AKG501's, great sound, great price/perf. ratio, and no amp needed)

Shure E3c (Ultra portability + isolation)

Of cans that I currently own or have owned for more than 3 months:
1. HD650/Silver Dragon: best balance of everything
2. HE60 (+ HEV70): if only it had bass slam....
3. RS1
------------------------------------------------------
4. HD600/Cardas: similiar to #1, but didn't like its diffuse imaging
5. ER4p (not really fair, since I only connect these to my iPod)

Thread Starter 
To me ranking would be solely based upon sound quality. Were not talking about value, simply which headphones sound the best out of your current stable.
