Sony MDR-R10 is more impressive really.

I've been pretty inactive in the headphone hobby for the better part of a year (I'm pretty happy with the gear I own).
Interesting to see that, in spite of the initial K-701 craze, Senn is still the consensus pick.
Also interesting to see no picks for SA-5000, and very few for Beyer. Those would been mentioned much more frequently a year or two ago. Also would have expected a higher vote count for the GS-1000, given Headroom's review.
/likes the way both AKG and Senn sound

Grados are the next brand I like after Sennheiser, so might as well see what their expensive offerings are about!
Hopefully some people read this can help suggestion about the HD650s.
I currently own Beyerdynamic 880s. From those of you who've used them, how do you like the HD650s compared to the 880s? What areas do you feel one is stronger than the other at? I haven't used the HD650s so far, but after reading so many votes on them for classical music, I'm half tempted to buy one since I have so much classical.
