I like it the best out of the 3. In terms of sound quality, SRH840 > HD25-1 II > AD700 for me at least. The HD25s are my portables and the AD700 is strictly for gaming.

The feeling of listening to stuff you never even thought was there is insane. Loving my HD595's!

If portable amp reviews were potatoes, that review would be a very good potato.

My JH13s have their second birthday coming up a little over a week from today. I use them almost exclusively with Amarra through my Macbook Air nowadays. Sometimes I use my Peachtree Nova but that's in my living room chilling with the Stradas and SB12-Plus..

My HF-2s see almost no use. I'll probably sell them sometime next year.
Do those grados have the foam earcups like most? How is comfort? Im on the fence between some sr225s, dt990s, or HD60(5)0s. Not sure which to pick, but i've heard the grado comfort is sub-par

I don't know what to get. Seems like there's a million choices. Would like to get something that's at least as good as Sennheiser's HD555 but can spend more. I should probably get a sound card but I'm not sure I like the idea of one in my computer so some kind of external one would maybe be ideal for me. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Music taste?
Budget?

Alright, I can probably go up to a Senn HD650 maybe if I go crazy, heh.
Anyway, so I like classical, rock, hip hop, punk :/ heh, a lot of stuff, and I game a bit too.
Let's say my budget is GBP400 (that's England money) so.. 632.368 USD according to XE, though of course things are never sold at that rate.. anyway, it's a starting point

EDIT:
I don't know if I want a built in sound card, and if it's external I would prefer for it to have optical input.
Maybe an AVR is what I'm looking for? Or a DAC?

They are bad. I have medium-large ears and with the stock "bowls" that the HF-2 come with I can't stand them for more than a half hour. My roommate has small ears and can wear his SR-60s (or SR-80s, can't remember) with the "comfies" for hours.

I had the HD 650s two years ago and they were amazingly comfortable. They would disappear on my ears. Very non-fatiguing sound signature as well. The HD 650s would be a night-and-day difference with any Grado when it comes down to comfort.
