Cannot rate all of them, but I did listen to HFI-780, Momentum and AKG K702 (Not Anniversary ed though). I'd say HFI780 are better than others, and Momentum are probably the second, however they are quite different, so it really depends on your taste.

I didn't hear HD598, but did own HD595 for a long time and I'd prefer HD595 to any of the ones I mentioned above in terms of SQ.

Comfort-wise Momentums are #1.

Hope that helps

Was thinking about adding some to the list, but I'm not quite sure what criteria behind it, price?

iI had the Ultrasone HFI-780 but one ear just randomly stopped working. Loved them over wise. just wanted to know what the best is in price range of $330 or below

It is hard to rank them without knowing your musical preferences or what you are looking for in a headphone.  For instance, if I was ranking on neutrality I would put the AKG K702's at number one, but if ranking for bass-impact I would put the PRO 750's at the top.  


I listen to mainly Jazz and Indie-rock so my preference is for mid-centric headphones like the HD598 or the Momentum.

Well i mostly listen to soundtracks, movies and games. I like the idea of open back but then again it may me too noisy around other people. So now my price range is $350 and below.

BTW, I'm going to receive Philips Fidelio X1 and Denon AH-D600 next week, they fall into your range, so I could update you with impressions and thoughts on how they stand against other mentioned gears.

hd600 are under $350 and they are much better than anything else in that list i have heard (I haven't heard the ultrasones though)

Thanks everyone for your replies. I will definitely look into all of these. I always do weeks of research before i make my decision. Gotta get the best bang for my buck.
