Well, close...

There are some albums that I listen to solely because of their production - like Eric Clapton's Me and Mr. Johnson. None of the songs are that great (compared to some of the other albums he's played on), but the sound that he can get out of a guitar sucks me right in.

It is the Clapton album that sounds the best, and because of it I listen to it at least as much as his others.

I love my headphones, and I love my speakers, but they are two different beasts, and different moods and styles of music usually dictate my choice of speakers vs headphones, and which speaker or headphone to use.

I have multiple sets of both, and my favorite speakers are a set of Full-range Fostex FE206Es. They are pretty flat, but its more than just the driver that makes a speaker flat.

It might also have to do with the specific amp that I can only use with very efficient speakers. Its amazing how much volume 5 watts can get you with the right speakers.

I would have recommended the Logitech S220s. I bought a set for my nephews for Christmas for $25 CAD. When I saw how small the box was that they came in I thought that they were going to be crap, but they were surprisingly decent for the price and loud enough to annoy the hell out of my sister.

I have a pair of 600 ohm AKG K-240s, and while they are nice headphones, they do not rival Grados at the same price point.

I have never heard any of their more expensive headphones like the K701s, so I can't comment on those, but lots of people swear by them.
