Default Headphones for monitoring mixes

Hello, I am looking for good headphones, specifically for monitoring mixes. The most I want to spend is $200. I was looking at Grado SR225, has anyone used this or have other suggestions? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I only use the Grados - SR325 I think. I used to use the Sony 7509 but they sound dull and boomy by comparison. The Grados get me 80% thru a mix before the Genelecs get kicked in.

here is a good place to check out headphone products, reviews etc. you might try the senn 595's, 600's depending on what you can afford. to me, those sound the best.

here HeadRoom - headphone site
