The GRADO SR-60 Impressions Thread - Page 41

post #601 of 865
Some more love for the grado sr60 before the new year ends. Just got these for christmas and I love em. They are bright but at lower volumes this doesn't bother me too much. Got them for work and now will see if I can get a hold of a cheap amp to drive these as i'm just using my audigy 2 sound card for now.

Heard these guys send them overseas...

Can I safely say the red line in this FR graph is approx the 'ideal line' for natural sound? If so; what effect will the Senns 414 pads have, considering this graph is made with their original comfies on;

More bass; desirable
Less highs at 1,400 hz to 10,000 hz; also desirable
Less highs at 10,000+ hz; not good

Seeing the isolating effect the (unplugged) cans have for noise from outside with comfies on;

gives the impression that having the thicker 414's on will reduce that part a bit more, which would be mostly desirable, I guess.
This would kind of keep me from cutting a coin hole in the 414's though, unless this only boosts the 10,000+ hz part.

Any ideas on this anyone?

Wow

I just wanted to thank everyone in this thread for turning me on to these headphones.

I got a pair of in-ear phones for my iPod for Christmas and they just made me realize how badly I wanted a nice, over the ear set of cans. So I decided to do some research online and found this site and then this thread. After all the glowing reviews I found a local shop that had the these in stock and picked up a pair and all I can say is wow... these are fantastic!

Listening to Abbey Road (lossless) right now and loving every minute of it.

Peace!

Great news. So you were able to find them locally. Did they allow you to demo the Grados first?

Wow

Yes, they set me up in a quiet room with the SR60's, SR80's and SR 125's. Spent about an hour listening to all of them with my iPod. For me, the SR60's were the warmest of the bunch. They all sounded great but the 80's and 125's were alot brighter to my ears so I went with the 60's. Maybe the others would sound better if I had an amp but since I don't I liked the 60's the best for sure. They also had extra pads like the ones that are on the 80's so I bought those and that as well made a nice difference.

Anyway, been listening to them ever since I got home and they seem to handle every type of music I throw at them so I am very happy.

hello,

I'm new there. I decided that i'll purchase the grado SR-60. Unfortunately, I do not live in the US. I know someone which is an airplanes pilot. He is a friend of my parent and I don't want to annoy him. I would like to know if I can ask him to bring me back thoses cans... but don't want him to search for them neither. Is it "widely" distributed in stores? Where did you get yours?

thanks.

I just got my grados in the mail today. And I will say they are quite an interesting headphone. A hell of a lot different than my Senneheisers HD 555s.

I like them so far.

I dont live in the USA but I go on vacation each year. I have seen SR60s in most Virgin Megastores for less than half of what I paid for them online in the UK. $60 was the lowest price that I have seen them for.

I love mine but if I knew the yuin pk2 better, I would've def. gone for those. I got a skinny head and big cans make me feel stupid.
post #613 of 865

I love my 60s
post #614 of 865
Those quite well modded. I wish mine were like, but I have intention of modding them. I like them enough as is.
