You Gould probably add that the Grado's leak sound lie no other, and thus are useless for use anywhere but at the home. I tried a pair of the Majors at a Dixons Travel and I was quite surprised, sounding pretty good, and being extremely comfy, although i only had them on for about 15 minutes.
I also tested them with my Omnia 7 which is a nice coincidence and I found that they went loud enough, and thanks to the clamp on your ears, they really blocked out a lot of outside noise.
I played a mixture of music, from Crystal Castles, De La Soul, Nero, and Frightened Rabbit and they sounded pretty good throughout, although i agree about the lack of bass, its still there, but far from being 'boomy'
All in all i was quite impressed, they look great, feel great and offer better than average sound quality especially for a branded pair like these and i think I'll be getting myself some!

weirdwilli: You make it sound as though the Grados "leak" sound through bad design, however this is an intended consequence of the open-back design. In fairness though, as a non-audiophile I share your bafflement at the idea of buying a pair of headphones that everyone else can hear.
