The Official Grado 325i Owners Club. - Page 12

post #166 of 3327
What seems to have happened when MS2 went from MS2 to MS2i was that MS2i received the new "mushroom" housing but not a driver change. So yeah; the MS2 is still the same as it always was except for the new housing. Of course the drivers have always been different between the SR-325 and MS2 which makes the sound different. Neither better than the other, just different.

I suspect; and this is only a guess, but I think the treble of the MS2i has about the same detail and extension as the SR-325i, but just not the emphasis, just doesn't range as high from the 0 db reference point.

But yeah; it would be great if someone could do an honest side by side comparison at that.

if someone would send me their SR-325i's, I'd do a very honest comparison

even though i posted this earlier in this thread. i still REALLY recommend this mod for any 325i owner.

http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showth...light=325i+mod

bass drum kicks sound tighter and more controlled (and punchier!) also everything in general just sounds more controlled. Even if you somehow dont like it, it is really cheap.

btw, i couldnt find the same pipe that guy has, but i just got an all rubber connector that was the same size and just cut the rings myself

hopefully this doesn't ruin the 325i like i felt the taped bowls did

does it still retain the clarity and the dynamism while enhancing the bass?

I wanna try that , I don't have any pvc pipe around but i do have more rubber bands than I know what to do with . Will they work instead ? They’re rubber ! I'll try and report back.

**edit. Yeah it works. There isn't more bass , but I can now FEEL the bass on my ears.


*** Edit #2 Actually it makes a noticable difference in bass , good idea Kees, my "the cults greatest hits" cd is now listenable where before it had no bass.

yeah it keeps everything the same with more punch in the midbass area, but it's not bloated either.

like if you listen to hardcore or metal, you'll notice more guitar crunch and stuff (which is good by all means!)

ah, good 'ol mid sweep!

while i'm not a huge fan of mid sweeping, I know exactly what you mean.

I went to my local home depot yesterday, twice, and they looked at me like i was crazy.

oh well, i'll have to find them somewhere else

I'm wanting to try this rubber gasket tweak. I need to measure the diameter and go hunting at Lowes/HD.

I find the stock bowls are the same diameter as a roll of 3m electrical tape and every hardware store has them.

has anyone tried popping off the buttons?

what kind of response do you think it would yield, a little more bass?

i'm pretty scared to, i don't want it to change the sound too drastcially, then be stuck with them that way =/

I popped off mine , didn't notice anything. I actually lost one of them and that sucks.
