After 10 minutes usage putting the plug is useless. It falls (doesn't have enough strength to hold the big 1/4'') So i won't be able to use them during this weekend...
This was the primary reason I went with the SR80 as opposed to the other (higher end)Grado's for portable use, to avoid the dreaded 1/4" --> 1/8" adapter.

Sorry if my post was the one that made you take a final decision, because it seems i explained it not with all detail, or you didn't get all the point.

At the shop the guy who sold me the sr225 (not the owner) gave me a faulty 1/4" --> 1/8" adapter. It was almost broken and the 10 minute usage I gave at home finally ended braking it up.

However today i went to the hi-fi shop, talked with the owner, he gave me back the money I payed for it, and gave me one that works good with it. (I am enjoying my music now, even if I will get one better this weekend -they cost <3€)

At the moment I am writing this I am listening to music with the sr225 and every album i listen to gives me new surprises

Well maybe you can get back to the shop and change them for the sr225

Cool. I just did not want all that extra weight on my tiny 1/8" jack and I did not want another adapter even though the longer Grado one is nice. Also I figured if they're mostly for portable use anyway what the heck.

Bah, I still want a pair of SR225's, but since I live in Europe they're $330 here. Yes, $330. I ordered a pair from TTVJ once, but he won't ship Grados outside the US because of Grados policies.

Yep, I bought mine in September 2008 for ~197$.
Now, after the unfortunate global financial crisis, they're about ~230-240$.

I live in Turkey.

If you're still considering, I can buy them and ship them to you

Thnks for the offer man, but I already got them. They were a bit more expensive than your current pice, less than $330 (if I use conversion between €/$), and the cheapest I could find on Spain for new. (Plus my father contributed paying 50% of price :P)

It is a shame the price difference is so damn big, however even if I payed more (than it would have been on USA), I hope they last years. Having Grado sound in Europe is expensive.

Thank you kindly.

Ya my sr225s are on the apuresound website recabled for portable use with his portable cable and a 1/8" plug. I'm satisfied with it but it didn't make as dramatic a difference as my Zu cables with my hd650s. Then again, i couldn't abx the sr225s but i could with the hd650s so maybe it was easier to see.

First i was going for black ebony ones but he said they were not so nice(bad wood or something) so i went for rosewood witch was much better wood.
The headband will come next week i think.

Then Mette Marius would be Miine and i could start a grado shop in my castle MUHAHAha.
