Yes, I still have all of them. Might need to see a psychologist because I don't arrive to sell a headphone I bought .... The MS Pro is more neutral and for some recordings I like this HP a lot. The HF-1 is the best Grado I ever bought in terms of what you get for your money. They should get a bit more time... And I still try to like the PS500 more. Working hard on it... not sure what will happen to the SR325e, maybe I start to talk about them with my psychologist...

Here I thought I had a problem, luckily I don't! I only had at most 4 pair of Grado's at a time!

I think the only headphone I'm emotionally attached to is my ZennJazzGrado, because it's the first headphone I built.



I'm also enjoying an older MS-1 (the small one, like the old SR80) that has incredible sound and I will turn that in an MS-1000 (with distancers and G-cushions).

And I'll probably keep my Stax, because I got it cheap and I can't replace that SQ for so little money.

Please try modding the MS1. I did have the MS Ultimate and liked it much much more than the original MS Pro. If the MS1000 is fine I will find myself a MS1 and mod it too. Gf hates Grado comfort, but she always got mad when I want to buy any cans worth more than $200, even if it's for her!

I bought distancers by ApatN and I'll get G-cushions (both Grado and Earzonk) next week, so expect a report in the near future.

This is why I never sold any of my HP's…with the exception of the first 2 pairs of PS1K's that I had because they didn't sound right…but the 3rd pair which I bought NOS sound amazing, and won't be going anywhere!

Ehr is it because of that little thing called "Grado quality control"....

Yes, I know, thats why I tried 3 pairs, and the 3rd pair were "right"…well worth the effort to get the "right" pair though.

The 3rd pair I bought (NOS/NIB-$1210.00) when the new (e) series came out sound superior to the 2 previous pairs I owned…wouldn't part with them for anything! And the more burn-in they get, the better they sound, for sure, they just keep on opening up more and more.

A "Grado" without Grado drivers, the very essence of the Grado sound?  Sheer blasphemy.  Nevertheless, that looks like a lot of fun.

I think most of us develop emotional attachments to our personal DIY projects.

The senngrado has to be heard to be believed.  Its a great mod. don't let the Sennheiser name fool you.  The PX100II driver is fast, detailed and very responsive to transients.   Its a very energetic and "fun" signature.   IMHO the SG is FAR closer to a Grado than a Sennheiser in this one regard.   Imagine a warm-ish, bass boosted signature thats fast and highly responsive and very detail revealing.  Its performance FAR outweighs the sum of its parts in my build.

 

Mine is the simplest of builds... Mines just an SR60i with a PX100II driver transplant.  I blu-tacked the driver magnet, fleece lined the inner earcup walls, and I use craft foam to suspend the PX driver in the SR60i earcup.  My attempt is to reduce earcup plastic resonance and isolate the driver better from the plastic acoustics.  The only thing I have left is to remove the SR60 logo button and re-perf the outer cup...  which I may not do as I LOVE the look of the SR60i.

 

Cheers and happy listening!!!

Now imagine yours, but clamped firmly in handcrafted khaya mahogany cups, cable replaced by a four-feet handcrafted cable terminating in a Swichcraft plug, and a leather headband....
