Having in the last 3 months bought a new pair of behind-the-neck on-ear headphones (ok-ish, poorly built but decent sounding Sennheisers. A part of the band actually split, though the sound wasn't affected and the issue is remedied with a combo of superglue to prevent further breakage and black electric tape for stability /) and a new pair of IEMS (pretty nice, sometimes troublesome Monster Turbines ), I'm now looking at non-behind the neck, full sized on-ears. My Sennheiser experience was a little less than ideal given the breakage, and I've heard lots of not so nice things about Monster on ears, so the main manufacturer I'm looking at is Grado. The SR60, SR80, SR125, and SR225 are all kind of in my range (the SR225 not so much, although I could be persuaded).
So among those 4 pairs, which would be my best choice? Or, is there another pair of cans in the same price-range that would work better for me? I have pretty diverse musical tastes, from classic rock to jazz to R&B to Punk to Grunge to blues to even the occasional classical. And I don't want to spend as much as $200 on something I wind up hating. I can go into a store and possibly listen to one or two of these, but long-term usage and thoughts would be a huge help.
