Can't agree with that, some do give realistic representations. If in addition "feeling" it's important, that's easily done by leaving monitor volume at low to medium level while listening to headphones, thereby covering all bases excuse the pun.
IMO just get good neutral headphones. I like Sennheisers. Grados aren't particularly neutral, have a lot of coloration. AKGs are good but can be bright and harsh on the ears after prolonged listening.
