I would have to say the same as I've said before, the Senn HD-650's or the Denon D5000's. Once I got my 650's I couldn't go back to the 555's again.

I know a student (college) recording engineer that uses ms1i's for recording. He claims its great for the initial recording of live performances. They are said to be more neutral than Grados but how much more I'm not sure. I wasn't able to listen to them long enough.
