Grado SR60 and

AKG K340

I have not made up my mind yet which I like better...I will say this, the 2 are VERY different. I have had the AKGs since 1986, and have had the Grado SR60 for less than a year...Also I use them in 2 different environments, the AKGs in a powerful Class A Amp, (which is hooked up to a pair of nice JBL 4411 Control Monitors when not using headphones) and the Grados in a unamped iPod.

I have owned Stax for a number of years. I have never heard of an SR-5 GOLD edition. Please explain.

4. Sony EX71

My AKG 271S is getting the most of use now, though, since I use it with my iPod at work and my main source is not with me at the moment.

EDIT - Forgot about Sony EX71.

But my HD595 might lose its spot when my Grado SR325i gets here, heh.
