That is pretty normal. You can improve the fit a bit by carefully bending the headband.

Hey guys,

As I posted in another thread a few days ago i took the metal mesh off the back of my 325i , and was rewarded with a nice boost in sound quality.
Less chamber echo, more detail !! and a more open sound.

Just thought id post what it now looks like , kinda cool i think.

Thats what 325i owners mean when they say to bend the headband so it will stay on. I can rock away all night and mine doesn't fall off.

ps: 200th post on the thread...the 325i owners club keeps on trucking.....

interesting.

mine seems to fit fine the way it is, but i do notice a little sliding and moving.

i'm scared to do something that drastic to my headphoens though

I just ordered a pair from TTVJ. I was thinking about the MS2i, but then realized that I love my SR-80s so much (including all of its "faults") that I thought I might be underwhelmed by the laid back approach of the MS2i. I want the Grado sound in all its glory, and I think the 325is will give me that.

Now the hard part...waiting the 2-3 days for delivery. I hope they're in stock.

The next hard part...resisting the urge to buy an amp so soon after this purchase.

amp ? for 325i

I am considering the purchase of a Grado RA1-HG amp to augment my 325i's. I'm considering the HG version to give me the added versitility in the event I decide to purchase an additional set of phones that require the higher gain, like Sennhieser. Currently I'm using a PA2V2, it's my first amp and I bought it mainly becaues of price and portability. It's a nice little unit but I suspect the RA1 would be a great improvement. I have no place to go to interview gear so I am relying on what I read herein Head-FI and hopefully a little personal help from all of you.

What kind of improvement could I expect with the RA1-HG over the PA2V2, specifically with the 325i's if you've listened to that combo?

Would it be reasonable to buy the RA1 non HG amp and save the money to invest in an additional amp should I purchase phones that require a higher gain amplifier?

i though i heard most people talk sh*t about the RA-1 because of its crappy components.

The 325i scales very well with an amp, big difference. The more refined your components get the better the 325i gets . I've got an x-dac v3 on the way , I expect it will scale up some more.

I honestly didn't need to hear that.

I did read a post here where someone trashed the Grado amp, said something about $30 worth of components....yada yada. I need a larger sampling than just one.

I received #5452 about a month ago.

Sad thing is, for metal (my favorite and by far my most listened to genre) I actually prefer the SR-80s. Funny. When my hornet gets here and is burned in, I'm going to see how well the 325i's work with it.

Bah...they're back ordered from TTVJ for a week. Oh well...I'll have my new portapros to play with until then. Was thinking about getting flats for them. I listened to the SR-225s and was a little disappointed in the bass compared to my SR-80s. From what I understand, the 325s are more like the 225s than the 80s.
