EDIT: I also didn't compare the K240S to the HD600 or HD650 so I don't know about that either.

That's good to hear, I'll try to find a good quality pair of Sextett's eventually, I want to hear the old AKG sound. I have two headphones I prefer to the HD 600, the K712 and the DT 150. It's not by a large margin but I prefer them slightly though I do have moods fairly often where the HD 600 is the only headphone I want to listen to.

I've owned both the Studio and MKII and I used the pleather pads on both, the velours(the MKIIs come with both pleather and velour) are too uncomfortable, both had a really nasty spike in the 10khz region that physically fatigued my ears and caused sharp pain in my ears.

I haven't tried them on my Lyr 2, I am willing to give them another chance, if the treble spike is tamed I wouldn't be bothered and I will love the headphone, it was just the treble that ruined them long term for me. If I get them again it will be the Studios as they look better and are cheaper. The Lyr 2 on low gain makes for a pleasent listening experience with brighter phones.

also I tend to like a little sparkle around 10khz so its actually better to me with a slight peak than a slight dip in that region

I've only heard one Grado and I had no issues with it's treble, granted it's an old pair that doesn't sound like the current models. I actually like a bit of sparkle in the 10khz myself, it's just when it's harsh I can't tolerate it. The DT 990 was less fatiguing to my ears than the K240 was for example and the DT 990 is known to be a treble cannon, it was definitely bright in the 10hkz region.

No I haven't tried either of them. I've read they are very harsh though.
