not quite dude. SQ is subjective. so if one guy says hey these are the best and someone else listens to them the could dissagree and say no i dont like those so these are the best.

sure grado's are great if you like stuff with electrics. like metal jazz blues suff like that. but say if you want classical or acoustic i would go with a akg k701 or k1000 perhaps a senn hd600 or 650. techno would be great with something by denon likd d5000 or the l3000 from audio technica.

and then when you want extreeme detail and seperation there is the electrostatics. from stax


ya see its all subjective their are many difrent brands because there are many difrent preferences in music.

I'm decided on an ATH-A700 and while I'm waiting I got a Sony MDR-XD100. I really wasn't expecting much from the sony (judging from the low price) but barring the bass clarity it exceeded my (low) expectations. I may even keep it after I get my AT (no point in selling it lol).

Like NFF said, it's subjective. Personally, I hate what I've heard from my (admittedly limited) experiences with Grado, the sound is just too up front and harsh for my tastes.

RSA P-51? Why not a pico/dac or even a Mini V3?
