I don't know the AT. The Sonys are all over. Most folks at the local NPR station, including me, use them for studio recording, editing, etc. (Classical, jazz, and folk)

If I lost mine, I'd get the same or the V6. Substantially the same but cheaper, I think the difference is just a shared ground in the cord.

So since you use the Sonys for studio recording, editting, and other stuff, doesn't that make them better than the Audio Technica i posted ? And what do you mean by shared ground in the cord?

Not better, simply well suited for task where a neutral frequency response is required to produce a balanced mix. I use a pair of the Sonys for that purpose and although I don't consider them completely flat they are pretty close.

On the other hand for regular listening you might prefer something that for example places emphasis on the bass and low mids. This is a completely different proposition, which is why it is a very good idea to try out as many different headphones as you can preferably keeping an open mind.
