Grado PS500's (that was easy).
Just keep in mind that the VRM is VRM. It simulates a good situation while in a bad situation. Like a mirage in the desert. Or painting a Yugo with paint from the Rolls Royce factory.Thanks guys. I have an FS PRO24DSP with VRM (Virtual Reference Monitoring) which emulates different speaker setups in different environments. I generally mix solely with monitors but can't do so once my family goes to bed so am trying to find a viable option that let's me mix as late as I want.
I have 225's here and they're wonderful. Nothing wrong with the 325's either. If I actually used them more often, I'd have 325's. Heck, if I used them more often I'd have the 500's. But I don't. But 225's are the best $200 you'll spend on cans IMO...Massive, that is a great suggestion. I ruled out the Grado's because of the price of the higher end models which I see a lot more when searching on the net. I found a pair of 225s on Amazon for $200! Do you have any knowledge of the 325s?

Once you get into the Prestige series, every additional $100 only really gives you about $6.75 "better sound"
"Delicate" -- Not "cheap" -- There's a difference. Even the most valuable gemstones can be crushed by the gentle tapping of a hammer...First impressions of the sr225i's is that they feel very cheap but sound good. They are also much easier to drive than my ath-40's. Will allow time to burn in before offering a more comprehensive review.
