I would absolutely recommend to acquire one of Grado' current models. I think both the GH3 and Limited production HF-3 are wonderful performers and great values. There are certainly many other excellent choices as you might look above the price range of these two.I once owned a pair of SR60's, until the cable went bad and I lost all sound to the left side. I've often wondered if I should try out another one of the Grado's.
Good luck and enjoy the journey if you decide to move forward.
