Of the ones you've listed, I'd buy the Grado.  But if you haven't tried them in person...well, Grado's are usually a love 'em or hate 'em affair.  I can't predict which side of that you'll find yourself.


The AKG K240 Studio is now just under $80.  Best price I've seen for it at Amazon. 


The Sony MDR-V6 is a solid choice, as is the Sony ZX700


Many people around here recommend the Koss DJ100, but I haven't heard them so look for some threads on the forum about them.

I recommend the AKG k240 Studio, beyerdynamic DT 235, and Sony MDR-V6.  Plus the k240 and V6 are extremely comfortable headphones to me.


The Koss DJ100 didn't sit well with me, and the pair of Sony ZX700 I had destroyed any enjoyment out of vocals, and drums. 


Try to listen to a few headphones and decide for yourself. We usually hear things differently.

the sennhieser 280's are also a solid choice

SR60i. They're a really good deal for $70, for two reasons, they're Grado, and Grado's the best out there, and you can mod the living hell outta them, so you basically get to make your own headphones outta the SR60's in a way.
