Congrats man!

Grados Rule!
post #17 of 31
I can't stand Grados. I think I'd rather have just a Beyerdynamic DT250-80 and no amp for less money than you paid for that amp and headphone.

But congrats! Anyway.

Well Kelly, I usually agree with you, but I hope I disagree with you on this.

Me too. A lot of people love Grados. If you don't, HeadRoom has a good return policy.

I must confess that I don't like my Grados, but... I know a lot of people DO like them... I hope you find the level of enjoyment you're after...

The good news is that the SR80 will sound better with the amp, as well And I think the Grado/AirHead combo is a good one. Because the AirHead is a bit warm with a bit of a rolloff in the highs, it seems like it would soften the brightness of the SR80.

Czilla9000, nuff of this reading and writing.
Go listen to this Grados!!

I personally got the SR125's, because I though they were a bit clearer than the 80's.

Somebody's already welcomed you, so I'll just say, Relax and enjoy the Music.

BTW, I didn't originate that saying, but it is appropriate. It was suggested by someone that it become our motto.

Ummm...some people have told me that batteries make a difference. I currently have Duracell Coppertops, those good enough?

grados rule for nascar!

If you have a TV cable box, get an RCA to mini connector for your amp. Nascar is great with grados!

Now thats just plain false...batteries make NO difference...other than some last slightly longer than others. Whoever posted that works for energizer or duracell or something.

There is something about the chemistry of the battery, and its ohmage - and... no, I don't work for Energizer

Zinc Chloride supposedly don't do too well, but Alkalines, NiMh and Lithiums are all cool so far as I know, so - basically only the cheapest of the cheap formulations may upset sonics.

I can distinctly tell the difference between duracell and the Energizer.

The Energizer sounds fast, energetic, and is good for drum music (marching band music especially)

Duracell is good for industrial tunes.

It's also is important to match batteries. You want to make sure each battery is within .oo5% charge of each other. This can be really expensive but not that much compared to 5k cables.

They also should have no dents (you can test this be rolling them on an incline to see if they reach the end at the same time)

Aviod Ratshak batteries as they make the sound cheap but may be good for commercial music.
