Previously owned:
AKG K141 MK2
AKG K240 Studio
AKG K518LE (too bassy)
Grado SR80i (too harsh/grainy)
iGrado
Koss Portapro
Audio Technica AD700 (no bass, just sort of hang over your ears)
Superlux HD662F (Nice natural sound but highs bit harsh - not enough burn in maybe)
Superlux HD668B (too 'v' shaped - wish they made an 'F' version)
Superlux HD660
Sony MDRV6 (tinny kind of sound. - like crappy earbuds with more detail)
Goldring DR150 (good but not as much detail as SR80i)
Koss Sportapro (First half decent headphone that got crushed under wheel of car. Think they were quite bassy)
Sennheiser PX100 (Were satisfying but cable broke at jack - who'd have guessed.)
