I have recently purchased an iPod nano and I need recommendation on a good pair of cans. I already got the PX100 but I need something with more Treble details. Can you please suggest one with more Treble details ? Thank you.

x2 on the KSC75s, hard to beat for that price IMO.

The Sony MDR-SA5000 has all the treble detail you can handle, at least without spending thousands.

I haven't heard the PS-1 or GS-1000, but the MDR-SA5000 handily beats the rest. It is the most resolving headphone I have.

I'd put the Beyerdynamic DT880 on that list, as well.

Definitely. Grados emphasize the upper midrange and/or (depending on model) the lower treble, which gives the impression that they are overly detailed. The SA5000 has them handily beat in treble extension and hence the detail and spatial information up there that Grados never spit out. The DT880 is like the SA5000-lite, a bit more relaxed presentation, and not quite so immediate with its' detail.
