Well this is a very good question. As the phrase goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Here’s a web link to some images made on a visit with Joseph Grado at his home earlier this spring:
You’ll notice the master enjoys listening to Grado HP-1000's with both iPods as well as, "portable Swiss made audio playback systems".
In, “Image 6”, notice as well the condition of his HP-1. I recently attended a funeral mass during which communion was offered to the congregation. In watching the priest handle the chalice during the ceremony, it reminded me of how Joseph cares for his personal headphones after using them. I do the same; by reverently handling them when using them and then returning them to proper storage when our listening sessions have concluded.
