 Oh man I'm getting nostalgia from when I first joined Head-Fi and first knew of those.
  The HF-2 was somewhat of a departure from the Grado house sound, by going even warmer, little less on the highs. It was a thicker overall sound, think Sennheir HD650, LCD-2 etc. I mean only in signature not in overall presentaiton. PS500 is based on PS1000 with smaller aluminum chambers and it was tuned for neutrality as opposed to the fun/warm spectrum as the RS series. PS500 if you analyze music and you're strict about your balance, HF2 if you don't care and you just...
  Very nice, thats the way to do it man. Once you go CRK, there is literally nothing else. I buy customs just because it makes me feel good but objectively that is the best folding knife in the world as far as were concerned.
Dang I would pay money for that job.
Aww man you're selling your RS-2?!
I find the 16's boomy as well, it's not just us being spoiled, I really thought it was a bit "much". I think you may want to look into the JH13.. thats why I got them. That being said I have a set of 8A's and they're on the warm side too but I really do like that sound signature. If you're looking for that energetic presentation without a lot of boomyness or midrange fluff you'll want to look at the UE Ref. ES5, or JH13. I've had experience with all of them, JH13's being...
We're punched in. Gotta find out what these sound like, it's so awesome to see a new product from these guys. Lightweight is good.
You'll be fine. If you can adjust the volume to get enough volume without going beyond say, 80% volume you have enough power. Tonality is another thing but I think people really stress the need for a headphone amp a bit much. I just look at them as expensive volume knobs these days and not much else. Been enjoying my music a lot more lately instead of sweating the small stuff and enjoying my much less expensive cans these days to explore where I was and to appreciate where...
Grado fan for life. If you wear them properly, they can be a great pair of headphones for extended listening sessions. A young Chris once took a listen to a pair of Kramer's Grado RS-1's and became hooked and later morphed into a terrible being of power on Head-Fi.. but thats another story.   It's fun and it's forgiving in the sense that it doesn't require much in the way of a source or amp regardless of which one you own, and that it doesn't take itself too seriously by...
You will be fine, just enjoy the music and don't strain too hard!
