Apart from minor comfort issues, these are some of the most incredible entry-level headphones money can buy. 'Nuff said.
post #422 of 866
I bought them as my first decent headphones a while ago, and i've been loving them ever since.

I'm amazed by the SR60 every time I throw them on before I go to work. Course, you GOTTA cut holes in the pads.

You got a defective RS1 man . Use a DAC, a proper AMP and the RS1 is worlds apart from the plastic grados.... I am a student with a 3 digit figure in my bank, yet the RS1 is so worth the upgrade in terms of sound quality.... give it the AMP and DAC, and its sound almost at the summit.

EDIT: it did take me almost a month of burning in to like the RS1 over the 325i, ..... a few more weeks passed and the 325i was packed up for good.

Having said that the SR60 is awesome

I just gotta say....

DAYYUUUMM! In the search for a good set of cans for my iPod (not the bank acct. bouncing kind), I bought a pair of AKG K26Ps. Didn't do it for me, have them up for sale on the for sale forum (buy 'em!). While surfing the 'net Saturday, I headed over to OneCall to see what was going on over there and saw a pair of SR-60's open box for $39. I said what the heck and bought 'em. Came FedEx today and I'm listening to them as I type (Christian Scott - Rewind That, great young jazz trumpeter), Apple Lossless via iTunes to my X-Can v.3. I haven't owned a pair of Grado's for over 2 years, sold them here I believe (a pair of SR-125s), and these '60s are making me remember why I loved Grado's so much. I'm a Sennheiser guy all the way, but the Grado's just hit another part of your psyche (or somethin'). They aren't even broken-in yet, I've only put 2 hours or so on them. The PX-100s have been my main 'phone on my iPod, with the CX-300s taking up the rear. I've owned E3Cs, ER6s. EX71s, and on-and-on, but I think I'm gonna love the Grados with the iPod (whenever they are done making this X-Can sing). Still can't mess with the HD-600s though...

One more thing, when I hear these '60s on my new Headfive (when it arrives), it's going to make me buy another pair of higher end Grados. I hate this place...

I just received my grado sr-60's last night. Pre broken in. WOW. This is the grado sound. Bigtime different from my sennheisers.I find myself bobbing my head so much they keep falling off my senns dont do that. These are great for metal and rock like yall said. I am running them through a pa2v2 amp and an audigy 2 at the moment.

Newbie.... first post after lots of lurking.

Have the SR-60 on order, should be coming today or tomorrow!!! Largely due to this thread and a lot of looking around.

Currently on Senn PX-100 (and the Senn noise reduction PCX-250 until my cat pulled the wires completely out!).

Am excited for the Grado sound!

And you will be surprised on how good the little Grados will sound.

Grado SR-60

up for best headphones ever, pound for pound, if it were up to me..
post #431 of 866
It's amazing how this thread makes me nostalgic for my old SR-60s that I sold off. Ugh, I'm probably going to end up selling off my PortaPros and getting another pair of SR-60s for portable use...
post #432 of 866
I'm tempted to be practical and trade/sell my SR-60's in order to fund an SR-225, but I really don't think I could bring myself to do it. I'll just work a few more hours to make up the cost, the SR-60's are here to stay for a very long time. So I say now, who knows what'll actually happen

Edit: Forgot to say that these were my first full sized head-fi cans, I had ER-6i's before these, but these are so much more pleasant to listen to, assuming the correct (quiet) listening environment. Makes me wish I had a better source and an amp... but that's head-fi for ya I plan on getting an amp before college starts, but that'll make me wish for better cans... hmm... food for a college student or headphones? I think the answer is obvious. Headphones it is!

haha tell me about it. it's like no matter what, in the future you'll always find a need for a thinline Grado. My Alessandro MS-1 is filling that bill after I sold my first one, and years later got another

They are my first (and only) "true" can that I really enjoy. I don't use any of my other headphones on a daily basis, let alone for hours at a time. No problems with comfort for me either, just cheap, clean, fun sound.

One of my favorite things about them is their representation of a rock drum kit. I have spent many hours around drums in a band I I know what they should sound like. The snare and toms are what capture my attention in many songs when I use the Grados.
post #435 of 866
I'm curious on how people use the SR60 as a portable headphone. I use the SR60 mostly for work since it has a somewhat quiet environment. When I tried using it outside...I couldn't hear anything unless I crank the volume way up and that's not good for my hearing. So I'm just curious to know how people end up using the SR60s as portables?

And oh yeah, they are awesome. They are the only headphones I use everyday.
