I have a friend with a few pairs of Grados that he raves about. I have some older cans, like a goofy Zenith quadraphonic monster, some recently acquired Pioneer SE-205s (brand new in box never used!, FREE!) and the typical DJ Sony MDR-V700s. I listened to them all, back to back, and I don't get the grados... the bass was muffled and weak, and the highs weren't very crisp. Most music sounded better on the MDR-V700s, which I know don't sound very good. I've listened to some other high end headphones and they blew me away, but the Grados... man... I just don't understand what the hell people are raving about.
