The GRADO SR-60 Impressions Thread - Page 31

post #451 of 865
i just bought my third pair of SR-60s. i always end up giving my cheaper stuff away to friends using sony V crap, but i think i'm going to keep this pair. for those who haven't tried Flats on the SR-60s, you really need to give it a shot. yeah, yeah, it seems funny spending $30 on pads for a $69 pair of headphones, but they really take the sound up to the next level in my opinion. the hole modded 414s are a poor substitute for the real thing.

I have an Audigy, which specific one I am not sure.

Keep in mind my Senn were PX100.


How do you like the pa2v2? Am considering that next...

EdipisReks: How did the flat pads effect the sound of the SR-60s. Since this is such a crazy combo, I haven't heard many impressions of it. But I'm still very curious!

it brings out the bass, brings the mid forward, and tames the treble. it doesn't really affect the soundstage much, since soundstage isn't a big strength of the SR-60s in the first place. SR-60s with flats have a lot more impact than with the other pads, in my opinion.

Anyone who doesn't like the SR-60s is probably forgetting that John so lovingly took the "sorry" out of "sorry about your wallet." You know, it's that whole underdog-trying-and-almost-winning story.

On their way!

This is some serious praise of these cans.

So much so that I just purchased some SR-60s from audio-advisor for $74 shipped. A little on the expensive side for these, but I want them now! haha

These will be my 3rd purchase, after the Sony EX-71s and Shure e2c

cant wait for them to get here!

Just ordered one from TTVJ because of this thread . Used my first purchase discount too so the price ended up being $52. These should complement my Senns nicely

I've had my 60's since Fathers day and enjoying the heck out of them. So much so I just took reciept of a set of 325i's last night. No way will I ever sell the 60's though they are here to stay

Your description of flats on an SR-60 sounds like everything that I could want out of a pad upgrade... There goes another $30...

happy to be of service

i just checked Grado's website, and what do you know: the picture of the SR-60s presented shows them equipped flat pads. a real shame they come with the comfies instead.

I think they function best as a beginner's headphone. The reason I bought them is because just about everyone got them as their first headphone. They come at a comfortable price for an amateur as well (they don't know they're walking into an ambush). That's probably why people with high post counts tend to not like them.
post #464 of 865
Eh? Not like them? Seems to me like plenty of high-post guys love them, even if only because they're what they cut their teeth on. I love mine cause they're my best headphones, but I'm sure that'll change in the future (maybe not until after college..... starts ). They're a can to keep around though.

They are soooooo expensive over here!!

I tried ONECALL.COM but they don't ship abroad...
I was going to suggest you use ShopTheStates but notice that they have recently closed. They recommend two other mail forwarding services, MyUS and MailForwarding but both of these seem to charge a monthly membership fee, so they may not be cost effective unless you plan on frequently ordering from US retailers.
