Thanks man, are you talking about the dark cups I just posted or the clear ones on the top of the page?

 

As far as I know the jump from the 80s to the 125s are not that major... I only heard the 60i, 80i, and i own the 225e. Actually had a 80i on me today, I like them a lot as well... 

 

I must say, the 80i to 225e is like night and day. But from the 60i to 80i the improvements is very marginal. 

 

I would add a wood cup to it instead, it adds a unique sound to your headphone while making it looking awesome!!!! and for like $15 you can get all you need to sleeve it and make it way more awesome as well... 

 

When I added the wood to the 60i it became a totally different beast... VERY WORTH!!!

Talk to fleasbaby here at head-fi. He has come cool cups, I bought a pair from him and it was awesome!! Not sure if he has stock at the moment. 

 

 

If he's out of it look for 'Headphoneku Fammate' on Facebook, I also got some cool cups from him.

Thanks for the reply. Both look great but I prefer the clear ones.

I think I'll aim for some wood cups first and then when I get some 225es in the future I'll just move them over.

That is a great idea, you will not be disappointed with the 225Es... They are truly the "sweet spot" as far as price and sound from Grado. The resolution is just out of this world, and its SOO MUCH FUN!! I own the SHURE SE535 that are about 2,5 times as expensive as the 225es, even tho they are technically worlds ahead, i find myself with my 225Es just because they put a fat smile on my face!!

 

just check my last post to Gr33nL34f for some cool places to find wood cups.
