I will work on adding both the "amping" quality to each headphone as well as sort them by price.

If you don't mind, I want to add some captions on phones I have in my procession:
Audio-Technica A900: Massive soundstage, strong bass, and comfort are its strong points. Great for watching movies and slow imtimate jazz. Slight weakness in the low-midrange. Improves ever so slightly with amp provided source is clean.
Grado RS2: A gentler and more refine model of Grado. Liquid mid-range and if used with flat pads, slammy bass. Very good paired with the Mapletree Ear+ (Tube), or Headamp GS-1 (solid state). If 325i is too sharp for you this is the phone to go for.
Sennheiser CX300: Great for the price. Lovely midrange, and very strong bass (although uncontrolled). Boomy bass can be overwhelming at times but does not cover midrange. Highs are the weakness of this phone.
