The Official Grado 325i Owners Club. - Page 13

post #181 of 3329
Thougt I'd contribute to this thread with a little something I found at headfest. As I was cruising around the meet I saw a member listening to a 325i. Nothing special I thought, but... there was something different about it.. I couldn't put my finger on it.

An hour passed and I found myself sitting next to that member and her 325i... we were demoing the Woo audio6. I looked closely at her 325i and ... WHOA!! An SR325i with an RS1/2, GS1k headband. Somewhat rare occurrence. I personally have never seen John do this before. It alleviates my only real complaint about the SR325i... headband dis-comfort with the narrow headband. The standard 325i headband is much more narrow and has less padding than the thicker ones pictured here.

This one is Jocelyns (from team Berkely-Fi). She was saying she bought it used, and neither her or the seller had any idea this is the Reference/Statement/Professional series headband.

comparison with an RS1....


The 2 near cans are RS1s, the far one is Jocelyns 325i...

^that's old news. my first pair of 325i's that i bought a year ago had the larger headband too.

Yeah, I don't think thats rare anymore. Mine has that wide headband also. Although I'd be interested in what serial number they changed it on.

Please provide width of the RS1 and SR325i bands. I think mine 325 has the RS1 bands to just not sure. Mine measures 1-5/8" wide.

As much as I hate grado as a company, I kinda wish I kept my old 325's.
post #186 of 3329
I though I'd share a photo of my current set up, I really love my 325i's and my next upgrade will most likely be straight to the RS-1.



So far everything sounds great, ipod to zu pivot, and the rest is self explanitory

I just received my 325i's today. Mine are #5676. I also bought the Grado ¼" to 1/8" adapter. Just an extra $15.

Yummy!

I love them! I kept on hearing about how heavy they were but they were lighter than I was expecting. I was listening with the Senn HD202. The sounds are not comparable to the 325i's.

Got them here:

http://www.shorelinemusic.com/access...radolabs.shtml

Scroll down to see their price, but it's the same as everywhere else. Shoreline Music was/is very friendly and extremely fast. I actually ordered them on the 24th and got them today.

I order the adapter on the same day from http://www.acousticsounds.com and it arrived today as well. Go figure.

hmm. it'd be nice to get them quick, but TTVJ had the 325i for $265. plus there's the $10 off coupon for first time buyers. i'm going to give them a bit more time, hopefully they'll come back in stock and ship out soon...

Work on shaping the headband to better suits your need. They will still be a bit loose while tilting your head but you should notice some improvement.
