I got a pair of these and they are so impressive, really.  I can't believe mobile can sound this good:   - My sound quality estimate is about 80% of the way to HD600 or 700 level when streaming Tidal lossless and have a strong Bluetooth signal. - A little smaller soundstage then the big open Senns (no surprise with this cup depth and being closed), but still good imaging and enough separation to make complex music passages surprisingly coherent. - I don't find them...
 I sure wouldn't mind a listening session with a 325e.  With the way the treble has been handled in the new e-series, I would expect to like them and again the value proposition from Grado is amazing, but like many others have reported the L-pads absolutely murder my earlobes after 25 minutes (I wear glasses).  I also prefer the soundstage of the EarZonk G cush... not too wide so those amazing Grado mids aren't too distant, and not too close so there is still some...
I couldn't agree more with the PS500e; used to have 325is and they were too bright with "hot", almost distorted sounding upper mids.  PS500e with EarZonk G (NOT Grado oem, which are also too edgy) are basically perfection.  They sound balanced and natural with just a bit of a bass boost and the imaging / detail is still excellent. I haven't found a better headphone myself, with maybe the exception of the new Focal Utopia & Elear, both of which I was able to hear at the...
 OK, I swapped my EarZonks for stock G-cush from a GS2000/Sympones v7 clone at the Seattle meet this weekend and it definitely made my PS500e have slightly less bass and far hotter treble.  It sounded a lot like the clone I swapped from. Going back to Ear Zonks tamed the treble into the sweet smoothness I've been enjoying with the Zonks for a while now.  Zonks do allow the driver to slightly touch my ears, but are comfortable for hours regardless and remain more intimate...
Does anyone have an extra set of official Grado g-cushions they'd be willing to part with?  I'm curious about the sound, but not $45 curious since I already have the EarZonks (which are very comfortable).  If so, PM me.
Does anyone have or know where to find frequency response charts for the GH1 and PS500e?  I've found plenty of measurements for the original PS500, but not the e version and have never found one for GH1.   I have the PS500e with EarZonk G cushions (and am very impressed), but I can tell the big bass boost does seem to create just a slight veil I'm not used to hearing on a Grado and am wondering exactly how the GH1 differs.
I have to agree that was a blast, and perhaps just the right size (and certainly quality) group to really dig in on the discussion and sharing.  Gefski's comments basically sum up the atmosphere, but hopefully the weather is better for everyone next time so part of the aftermeet could be visiting one of the many beautiful spots in B'ham.   It shouldn't be a problem to host this at least annually for now so long as I'm still with WECU.
Setting up now if anyone is in town early and wants to help move some tables around.
 I'm pretty sure we'll have it, assuming it works OK (won't have support if it doesn't).  I printed out a few copies of the access key to pass around.
 So awesome... I'm hoping we can attach several DACs and amps simultaneously and be able to do some quick A/B with different headsets while the same reference audio stream plays.  I'll bring my TOSlink cable.
