#1 - Monster Turbine Pro Copper
#2 - Grado SR-225i
#3 - Fischer Audio Eterna
I really do like the Grados, but I find them so uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time that the Monster Turbine Pro Coppers just become my default phones ... but they are really fantastic, and a great low end for IEMs.

Current list of what I own:
1. Sony MDR-7506
2. Grado SR80i
3. Panasonic HTF600-S
4. V-Moda M80
5. Audio Technica ATH-M50
6. Astro Gaming a30
It was harder than I thought to rank them because some of them are fairly genre-specific.
For example, I only use my SR80s with rock, acoustic, metal type music, and not at all for rap, hip hop, dubstep. Surprisingly they do sound really good with 70s soul music despite the fact that bass isn't one of their strong suits. They did really well with Otis Redding and Al Green and provided a surprisingly full, warm sound.
The Pannys are really only used for hip-hop and dubstep, because I don't really care for their sound with most other genres of music. However, the bass they provide makes them really fun for the genres that I mentioned.
The Astros have been banished to the "gaming-only" realm and I really only use them when I want to chat over XBox Live. For single player games I tend to use my Sonys because they sound better and I don' t need a mic in that case.
I have a set of HD650s and a Fiio E9 on the way, so pretty soon I can see that list being 1 item long. :)
