Nothing groundbreaking, but I got my Men's Health magazine today. They had a short snipet on six headphones. Didn't rank them, but just a few sentences about each.

The phones were:
Sennheiser HD 598
Denon Urban Raver AH-D400
Audio-Technica Solid Bass ATH-WS55
Polk Audio UltraFocus 8000
Bowers & Wilkins P3
Monster Inspiration

The polk write-up reads as follows...
"These noise-canceling headphones are well built, with a cool carbon-fiber band. They're smart, too, with a push-to-hear control that amplifies external voices. Listeners across the board raved about their clear highs, deep low end, and wide soundstage. 'They gave De La Soul punishing bass and fluttering highs,' said one.
