You can always post a WTB ad in the headphones for sale section.

Excuse my ignorance,(and slightly off topic) I'm getting so hyped up for the sr60! I live in the NYC area and Brooklyn is only a train ride away, can I just like buy it right at the "Grado Labs" or it's restricted just to "order" it?

Actually, I've never heard one instance of anyone buying a pair of Grado headphones directly from Grado labs, of course that doesn't mean anything. You could check for all of us, but I simply don't know. Repairs are done through their main address though. That, I am sure of. Also, I've never seen pics of what Grado Labs looks like, so if you're going, make a thread on it

I am positive you can't because Grado has contracts with it's distributors and selling direct would break those contracts. This is the same reason why shure cannot sell direct. Sennheiser cannot sell direct...etc.

I've finally joined the cult of Grado. I couldn't justify paying the UK cost of £70, but I managed to get some from The Sound Room. I had them delivered to a colleague who is in Miami and picked them up from him this week. That store were happy to take payment on UK credit cards or Paypal (which I used). It ended up costing just £35

Anyway, they sound great to me so far. I look forward to re-listening to all my music. They just seem to bring more 'life' out of the music than the other headphones I have used. I'm sure there are better headphones out there, but I can see myself being happy with these for a while.

I'll have to stop reading Head-Fi now to avoid further temptation.

I just got some SR60s today... great cans, slowly getting burnt in. I will use them at home and keep my KSC35s for when Im out and about. Can you guys give me any recommendations on mods and where to find how to do them to improve the comfort and sound quality?

Check out the HeadWize Grado Mods page, here.
The easiest way to improve sound quality is to change out your earpads or recable your grados. Changing earpads with 'flat' pads not only improves comfort, but dramatically increases sound quality. Other pads available are Sennheiser HD414 replacement pads(works best with quarter diameter hole cutout), Headphile C-Pads, and Radioshack pad #33-379. Recabling is more difficult, but combining the two is a way to make your own beast.
gsferrari can tell it to you with much more detail than I could, so it's best that he explains it, if he's got a moment. gs?

I've joined the Grado bandwagon, though at $200 AUD the SR60 certainly isn't the remarkable deal all you lucky US Head-Fi'ers are enjoying I simply couldn't resist though, there's just something about Grado. Rather like expensive single-malt scotch whiskey. To the adverage drunkard, jack daniels will do - the conniseur demands Glenfidditch

That went way off-topic there. I guess i'm kind of incoherent atm, most of my attention's on the sounds coming out of my new Grado

Covenant - Welcome to the Grado Labs SR60 owners group. Most of us, as you already know, love the SR60 & we hope you will to. After you get a few hundred good hours with the can drop on by www.headphonereviews.org and register a profile there and give them a good thurough reviewing. Of course this is up to you, but it is quite satisfying to lay your opinions out on the web for everyone else to see. Also if you have the time drop by here and add your thoughts on it to the hundreds that have already been posted, or should that be thousands...

OK OK, I'm sold. Or I guess they're sold. I just order my first pair of SR-60's. I have been using HD-590's for 3 1/2 years, and it is time to put them to bed (or up for sale I guess). I have heard so so many good things about the SR-60's that I have to experience them for myself. I listened to a pair in a local store, and was duly impressed. Unfortunately, they want $89 for them. So I decided to order them from HeadRoom (a Head-Fi sponsor). Now I have to wait about 2 weeks to get them. Oh well. I also order several sets of pads (HD-414's, Bowls, and the flats that come with the 60's). My next purchase will probably be a set of Todd Flats, or I may go all the way up to the Headphile C-pads (Zeta bowls are the most likely choice).

Long story short, I'm in, and I am looking forward to a direct connection to my music.

Good to hear you are in as well, let us know what you think after you have been "in" for a little while. Might try my www.headphonereviews.org sugjestion to if you have the interest in that sort of thing.

It is nice to know that 18 pages (so far) of SR60 love have been put to good use by a couple members. I can't wait to post an SR60 vs. "something/anything" Ownership Playff, that should get some good feedback. Make sure to vote in it if you see it, and once angain congradulations on joining the vast # of SR60 owners on the board.

i can't believe it . k240s sounds muddy to me yet he praise it as though its a poor man's hd600. From my head fi experience , the musicality and coloration of a phone is more important than technical abilities. You may be wowed by better details or resolution but the way the phone present the music that suits your ear is most important in the audio world imho
