ok, I'm actually not sure about the sens but I have read in an interview with John Grado that he listens to rock music and electric guitar when he is designing a headphone. But then again, even his hearing is subjective and we don't all like what he does. Disregard my statement

I also enjoyed my K601 with rock music but the K702 is better because it had more punch in the bass.

Collecting headphones is a materialist activity. If you can't wear ten different headphones at a time, the point to collecting them all is to have your little collection, one which you can show off to others. It's an expensive little pastime, one that limits your ability to try out different cans (assuming you don't have a rich friend or a headphone emporium nearby).

Letting go of the collecting fetish also frees up your funds so you can afford to try out whatever suits your fancy (assuming it doesn't cost ten grand).

Collecting headphones is just another form of materialism. It's all about ownership. Letting go of your possessions - or at least trading one off to play with another - is more in tune with the fact that things come and go. All we're left with, in the end, is a "collection" of experiences. Nobody can take those away - till you get Alzheimers and spend the rest of your days in a nursing home being visited by strangers who call you Dad.

And where some minimum-wage-earning bed-pan-changer will steal your cans when you're not looking.

Go wat yourself.

Your outlook on life is so sunny. I wish we could all see it the way you do ...

By rock I mean independent rock that you mention in the op (franz ferdinand, joy division, trans am, sebadoh, pavement etc. etc.). I've been A/Bing five headphones for a few weeks (SR225, DT770, D5000, K271, SRH840) and the SR225s are head and shoulders above the others with rock. Okay a cowlick better than the D5000 and an earlobe better than the SRH840 but without a doubt the best of those five.

You didn't mention amplification so I'll assume you don't have any- which is ok because the Grados suffer less than the others too with weak current drive.

These cats (macedonianhero, etc) know what they're talking about- they've spent thousands on headphones so you don't have to.
