No, seriously I understand your approach. While the MS1 remains the can I love most, I give in that it has a very ...pronounced and unsilky...way to present its mids, which some might regard as "cheap & screamy". A matter of taste & genre.

I wasn't too impressed with Grado SR60, 80, 125 or 225, or Senn HD555's (and some other Senn I can't remember). They all had a nice wide detailed/bright sound, not enuff bass for me.

CD3000, HD650 (balanced or SE)

Grado SR225 - Never has a headphone been hyped so much and delivered so little.

#1: Grado SR60: I don't understand why some people feel they sound better then other $60 headphones. They're OK, but lack any refinement IMHO.

#2: AKG K701: Since it's the newest audiophile phone, it gets recommended way too much

#3 HD650: Follows the k701 as being an automatic recommendation for anything. Being a Sennheiser fanboy myself, I still try to describe the virtues of Sennheiser's other offerings. The HD595 is not that much more inferior as others say, the HD600/580 are worth consideration too.
