I've been reading very good things about this headphone in other forums, and would like to know what you guys think about it. I'm returning my Grado SR 80's because I decided that I couldn't live with the open air construction and now, this headphone looks like the best headphone for me. I mainly listen to jazz, big band, classic rock, and a lot of dave matthews band as well as other similar alternative styles. I have no doubt that this headphones can provide the mids and the highs, but I definitely want strong, deep bass and would like to know whether or not they can provide it.

I am also considering the Sony MDR-7506/V6. I've read many favorable reviews about it, but I'd still like a rundown between the two, and if there's a better one out there in the $120 price range, please, feel free to share.
