These guys are incredible. Now all I need is the above...with vocals. :)
That have come to market over the past 3 or so years?   I have the HF-1s and use the s-cush reverse mod which is ok, but would love to get velour or leather on them. Considering ive been out of the headphone game for a couple of years, was wondering if there have been any new mods or other pads that might now fit?   Love my HF-1s; dont find any of Grados earpads comfortable.
I have #426, mint condition, signed Grado box.   Wondering if anyone knows what these are presently worth?
Ill definitely look into the Planars but think im going to pass on another pair of Grados.The Grados pads bother my ears and im looking for a true over the ear experience. Do the 500s use the large bowls found on the 1000s or are they the regular sized pads found on my HF-1s?
   Thanks for the responses.I have read that they arent that comfortable.Do the pads go completely over the ear or are they on-ear? Any other differences between the 400 and the 400i? Any other cans I should consider? Maybe Fidelio x2?

Thanks for the reply. Its definitely not the recordings as I listened to the exact same tracks on my Ipad with the same cans and theres no static.I guess I could try using the AAmicro on my laptop to see if its not working properly. Can you recommend a good desktop DAC w/Amp, sub-$150?
Ive had these beauties for ages now and adore them but they are just not comfortable post 1 hour. Also, I find they lack a bit in soundstage and separation.   I am looking for an open-back, stay at home-only jack of all trades-can, under $5/600.   Something that can handle everything from extreme metal, to dubstep to classical. Comfort is critical.   I dont have an amp...but am about to get a DAC (possibly a Fiio), as I listen to most of my music by my...
I am using a pair of Grado HF-1, connected to an Audio Advantage Micro 2, which is connected to my Dell. I have no (decent) sound card to speak of. I have been noticing when listening to piano that I have this low lying static in the background. Ive tested a variety of setups; its definitely not the headphones or the AA Micro-its something wrong with my soundcard/motherboard.   I know NOTHING about DACs but many friends have recommended I get a Fiio (I forget which...
