Have you looked at the Massdrop ones?

These.

Note: Massdrop is now "drop.com", although the headphones still have Massdrop as part of the product name.

My Grado 125s are superb, and incredible bang for the buck at half the price of the Sennheisers. Sound so much crisper than my two wireless sets, both of which are leaders-in-class (Sony WHMX1000-2 for NC and Steelseries Arctis 7 for gaming)

Only downside is they're a 1/4" plug instead of a 3.5mm. Might be an issue depending on your use case and snootyness about extension cables.

Oh boy thanks.

I did end up getting these. Came in a nice box and they sound great. I opted not to get the DAC/AMP, cables or ear cushions but now I'm thinking I should have got the DAC/AMP also. Didn't really know what the deal was with them but now I do.
