Grado headphones have been recommended on Stereophile and The Absolute Sound. Some of them are highly rated on headfi. They are stocked at high-end audio stores. I'm not sure they're necessarily best buys in their price categories, but by pretty much any standard they are headphones for audiophiles.
Good prices. Great headphones.

They will get uncomfortable though. Not for long periods of use.

Overuse of the term audiophile.

I've been looking for an open-back headphone to replace my M50 - these seem to provide a nice soundstage but have particularly bad reviews regarding comfort.

Majority of the Grado headphones are on-ear, especially the lower-end models, and are also made of a fair amount of plastic for the band and the housings. Nevertheless, the sound quality is very top notch.

For comfortable circumaural cans like the M50, you might be better going with Beyerdynamic.

There are a bunch of different ear pads you can buy. I like the G-cush, L-cush are also good. I don't like the stock "flat" pads.

IMO, these are a good pair of home listening headphones if you listen primarily to rock/acoustic music. If you listen to a wide range of genres, you're better off shooting for a studio-oriented set of headphones like the Sony MDR-V6.

Personally, I think if you liked your Audio Technica's and you want an Open set, the AD700x is a no-brainer. I have the old AD700 and use it as one of my primary drivers. Not the most articulate/clear headphones, but very smooth and airy.

Are the SR60e - $59.99 and SR80e - $74.99 worth it at those prices? Anyone with hands-on with those?

I love that these are not bass boosted. I really appreciate a more realistic bass sound! So I like these already lol

These are definitely audiophile grade headphones. Shame about the CA tax though.

While I've never listened to a pair of M50's, I have listened to a pair of M50x's and a pair of Grado SR60's. Personally, I like the sound of the M50x's much more. The Grado's were too bright for me.

With that said, if you are looking for an open back headphone that sounds more similar to the M50x, I'd go with a pair of Sennheiser's, either HD558 or HD598 depending on your budget. I own a pair of HD598's and they are one of the most comfortable and nice sounding headphones I own.

Bit of an over-generalization. Just like with sound, comfort is highly subjective. I have the 225's and have no comfort issues w/ long listening sessions, but some dislike them.

They sound great to me, and are my go-to 'phones.

They are within $5-10 of the lowest price I've seen. As for value, you'd have to decide for yourself. Having only listened to a pair of SR60's, I didn't enjoy the sound signature. It was much to bright for me (think Klipsch horn tweeters in your ears).

Interesting response. I actually like the sound of Klipsch ear headphones (the S4, specifically). I know these are open back headphones, but would you say these are in the same category as those? Modest base, solid middles and "brighter" as you said?

I think I 'm getting these lol
