My System Specs

I've found Grado's to be quite decent for acoustics and vocals, especially female vocals. However, they colour the sound in such a way that's undesirable for other types of music. I love mine but I love them for the music that they're suited for. Plus, they can get uncomfortable to wear over long periods.

What I'd suggest is to see if there's an audio store in your area that will let you sample products with your music. In Vancouver for example, there's Headphone Bar which carries all sorts of products that you can demo with your own CD's or an amped MP3 player. If you're spending a couple hundred on a set of cans, you want to make sure they're comfortable and sound good.
