I'm a big fan of sennheiser earphones. I've got a pair of HD205's, which they don't make any more. I get no background noise with them, and they cost me €50, I found them much cheaper in the UK but i needed something whilst travelling.
I did a bunch of research on Head-FI.org. A bunch of Senns were very popular. But the Grado SR60s seemed to be one of 2 or 3 that were considered the best under 100 buck cans out there. AKG K81DJ being another that I almost bought. The Grados sounded like almost what I wanted, tho the aforementioned AKGs also seem positive. At work I currently have Senn 457s. They're ok. I hear the 205s are VERY nice. I opted for the Grados as they seem to offer a different sort of sound and I was curious. All said and done, I really want
Beyerdynamic DT770 (pro). Then convert em to Darth Beyers. Seems like theyre right up my alley as far as music goes. ATM, Im just waiting for my Grados and amp to arrive.

They'll sound even better once they've been broken in. Then you'll get the best sound quality. Some phones takes up to 100 hours to break in though, but normal wear does the trick as well.
Agreed. Tons of people go with the burn in theory and just leave them connected emitting sound to burn them in. The types of sounds used seems to vary person to person, with no facts to back it up. I'm merely listening to them evolve as they burn in.
My impressions are pretty decent. They're not the most comfortable headphones I've ever seen. And they build quality feels kind of cheap in places. (IE the plastic used on cans themselves.) The cables seem to be suspect at the Y connect. I'm probably going to recable them since modding things is fun. So I suppose this is one more reason.
All that aside the sound is amazing. Very bright and fun to listen to. Crisp, clean bass, tho not overly deep. I'm very happy with them. Even more telling was when I brought my Sennheiser's to work today and saw how they don't compare in any way. I'm very pleased. I have some mods to do. Ill probably try to post some pics along the way. And my amp is on the way as well. I'll give impressions on that setup. Should be in the mail today.

I also found a local dealer that sells Grados and Senns and let's you demo them before you buy them. It makes it very hard to not go there and try out higher model Grados. Granted I'd probably piss a paycheck away on a set of headphones if I did that....... It may be worth it tho ..........
