Sound quality rate:

1) Grado SR225

2) Grado SR60

Frequency of use rate:

1) SR60

2) SR225

I just had to add my .02. The SR60's I use with my portable DVD player, (player on chest, laying in bed, watching movie till sleep prevails = heaven), and they get tangled up in the sheets. Wouldn't want to subject my 225's to the abuse!

The SR225's are reserved for music.

I use different headphones with different stuff so I'll rate based on frequency of usage

1. HD 650
2. SR-60 (soon to be replace by a better Grado)
3. HD 595 (A must for DVD!!!)
4. AKG 501 (very bad with bright sounding soundtracks with limits its usage)
5. Edifier 800 (my only closed headphone if I ever need one)
6. Senn MX 450 (below average sounding ear bud)

I don't dislike any of my gear except for the last one. All of the above are with stock cables.

1. MDR-E888LP
2. MDR-ED268LP

Yeah, I know, neither is "audiophile" grade. But, man, do the E888 sound fantastic on my MP3 player (Nextway NMP-612TD/512). Really nice for Jazz and Classical on it.

I'm considering getting a pair of SA5000s.

I haven't heard the md33, but the ep630 sound good so my guess is that they are the same. I live in Stockholm Sweden, so I got it from my local shop (www.webhallen.com).

Sound quality (Use Frequency)

1. Shure E4 (95%)
2. Shure E3c (5%)
3. Modded Koss The Plug (0%)
4. Sony MDR-EX71 (0%)
5. Various OEM phones (0%)

Read the list from bottom up and it documents my headphone journey thus far. When I bought the Sonys, I couldn't believe I was paying--gasp!--$40 for earphones.

I picked up the Koss Plugs as a stopgap measure after I tired of the Sony's well-documented shortcomings and while I was waiting for the E3cs. Even modded, I hated The Plug.

Anyway, it was somewhere around the time that I was waiting for my E3cs to arrive that I discovered Head-Fi. Sorry about my wallet.

*Cough* So, you wouldn't mind selling me your MDR-R10, would you? No point in leaving them lying around like that.
