What sources will the headphones be plugged into?
 
Check out the Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) headphones.

Sony v6 sounds pretty good for rock music.

Mikros 90 because it has a Grado-like sound.

All good choices IMO; the Mikros 90 may be a little light on the bass for rock.
 
Also, I've heard so many good things about the Senal SHM-1000, as an "improved" Sony V6/7506,
that I bought a pair from B&H.  They're supposed to arrive today (Tuesday), so I may
be able to put some thoughts down here by the close of the day.

I still think the Creative Aurvana Live are pretty good rock headphones for $70.

The Mikros 90 will have plenty of bass.
Modded, they will have limitless reserves of bass.

Don't own them; heard them under decent conditions.
 
Modded: many good headphones really shine
