I decided to get one of these three headphones but can't make a decision as they all have great reviews. I'm inexperienced in this area and trying to stay on a budget which is why these are my options. I don't know about the K240s because I read they're a bit too mellow for some people, especially when used on an MP3 player which is what I'm mainly going to use them on. I mainly listen to hip-hop so I'm also trying to figure which pair would produce the best sound for that genre. Suggestions?

The Grado SR60i are excellent. Great for long listening sessions. You may need to apply a little EQ to get the extreme bass and treble just the way you want it for hip-hop. The Samson and AKG are oriented towards project studio use so may be a bit bright for long period listening.
