Yes they can be a bit polarizing.. and it's true either love them or hate them! They are not for bass heads, and the leak sound more then a 1960s English sports car leaks oil. But if you give them time and allow them the proper break and they can be very rewarding...
HarveySwick let me share with you my story my relationship with Gradro's. I work in Las Vegas as an audio engineer and one day coworker let me his pair of Grado SR60s and I was happy.. I have to admit that up to that point I had never heard anything quite like the Grado's.. the openness..the produced the feeling of oneness with the music..the sounds but I've never heard from other headphones .. I have been mixing audio for years but the Grado's were different The...
The left driver on my LCD-2 also failed after five months. I sent it off to Audeze they took almost a month to repair and when they came back they would make crackling sound when you touched them. Spoke to Audeze they agreed to replace them a new pair. Sound wise they are without a doubt some of the best headphones i have ever heard... Unfortunately they do seem to be having some QC issues. I am hoping that my new pair will fare a bit better then my first pair ...
I've owned a pair of PS 500 for about six months now, and I have to say this when I first heard them before they were broken in, they were a bit muddy and disappointing.. However as they begin open up they very quickly began to soundbetter and better... As far as female vocals go, I kinda prefer the richness of the PS 500s on female vocals more than I like them on my RS 2's. In the end though it all comes down to personal taste, but as far as my ears go, once properly...
Grado... The entry level drug to the world of the Audiophile....
To make matters worse, last year I gave my 16-year-old niece, for her birthday a pair of Grado SR80i's... Now I fear that she become addicted also!!
I have discovered there are cheaper less expensive and less addictive hobbies then being an audiophile.. Crack cocaine for example..
Well... It :)appears that the mystery behind the Grado PS 500's with the red drivers and 1/8 mini headphone jack has been solved. Apparently Gradro has been secretly selling next-generation E type headphones without the E markings to unsuspecting customers for the last couple of months. To the lucky people who have been allowed to purchase these NewGeneration headphones I offer my congratulations. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks someone will do a comparative...
I would be curious to see if it's just the PS500'S that they're changing the cable from the standard 1/4 to the 1/8 connector... For the average consumer this move makes sense since the majority of consumer audio equipment out there from computers to telephones and MP3 players seems to only be available with the 1/8 mini jack. Unfortunately old acronyms like myself still prefer quarter-inch headphone jack.. Sad to say, but at this point I think we both seem to be going...
