Good question. Don't get me wrong I love the grados but the pxcs are a decent all-round headphone aswell - all be it a lot more expensive. They both have similarities in their presentation (i.e rolled off bass and forward midrange). But the pxcs take the lead due to their comfort. You can wear them for hours and hours, whereas the grados get annoying smily_headphones1.gif

Philips HP910 (with Amp)

- balanced, soundstage and extended bass. Needs several days burn time. No Amp? Forget it.

 

ATH A900

- Nice sound but need heavy Eq tweak. Also need some burn time but not as long as HP910. Very tiring for long term use: heavy

 

Only 2, others I don't really like.

Ultrasone HFI-780- Amazing soundstage and a very well rounded detailed sound that revels in treble and bass harmony. A closed headphone thats like having an open headphone on the level of the Audio Technica ATH AD700 but without the grainy sound or leakage disadvantages. While the soundstage of the AD700 feels slightly overdone with its huge almost echo like soundstage as if your in the middle of nowhere in the Grand Canyon the HFI-780 on the other hand gets the soundstage just right making it feel like your relaxing in your audio treated room with some amazing speakers.

 

Sennheiser HD 280 Pro- Best isolation I have seen in a headphone similar to wearing ear plugs. Excellent powerful bass that doesn't overpower the treble. Treble is very good but it doesn't have the sparkly peak of the Audio Technica ATH AD700 or Koss UR40.

 

Audio Technica ATH AD700- Very detailed with an incredible soundstage. Many people say its bass anemic but for me just messing with the bass settings on my Onkyo TX-8555 stereo receiver brings out all the bass I could ever want. The bass is more a metallic slam or thump and not the boom boom you might hear from a car blasting it on the streets. There is an omnipresent grainy sound to the AD700's signature which some may or may not like. I find it brings out more detail in new wave, ambient and classical pieces. If not for it being so open letting in a lot of environmental distractions it would be my 2nd place headphone.

I have 3 over ear headphones only.

This may be a surprise to some of you but this is how I would rank them

1. Superlux 681 evo-amazingly neutral, soundstage, details, just great
2. Ath m50-most impactful. Bass is great and the highs are just right
3. Senn 428-still very neutral. Sounds "robotic" though. Most bass shy

Now I'm still a noob so I don't know how accurate those descriptions may be to all of you lol.
Take my ratings with a grain of salt

Everybody has a love/hate relationship with these. I had a pair and hated them, but it turned out mine were defective. My second pair I loved the sound of for certain genres, but I'm still having trouble getting over the shoddy build quality.
