Cheap Place to Buy Grados

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
*Jude or Neruda, feel free to move this if it's in the wrong forum*

The other day I was reading Sound and Vision magazine, and in the classifieds, there was an ad for a company called SoundSeller I don't know if any of you have bought from SoundSeller, but I recently e-mailed them for prices of Grado Sr60's and SR80's. They replied saying that the Sr60's went for only $55 , and the Sr80's are only $75, and that shipping was only $5 (shipping was to California, but probably is the same for anywhere in US, correct?). Now I'm not sure on the prices of the rest of the Grado lineup, but I am definitely waiting anxiously for a reply [I just asked about an hour ago] This was a big relief for me to find a great value set of cans for even cheaper.

Has anybody bought from Soundseller, or heard anything about them? Because they seem to be a good choice to buy, but I guess I'm just a bit suspiciousabout the low prices....anyone have any feedback on soundseller? -Thanks a bunch in advance

PS. Is it just me or is this guy wearing Grados?

I just got a reply from the SoundSeller guy;
the prices for the Grado lineup are:

SR-60 $55.00
SR-80 $75.00
SR-125 $120.00
SR-225 $160.00
SR-325 $235.00
RS-1 $550.00
RS-2 $395.00

He says the shipping is:

$5.00 to the US
$10.00 to Canada

.......Good deal? Should I buy? [I live in Canada].....Also 'Matt' here at head-fi recommended hifiman69@aol.com , he also has good prices, I will post them when I get a reply from him.

Please tell me what you think of these prices, and if you think I should buy them. Thanks

well, when I order online, I only pay when I get the package. If you could order those Grado's like that from him, you get a great price. Not mindblowingly low, but worth it. Just be sure you can cancel the payment if he doesn't deliver or you get refurbs.

Any updates on those two sources? Those are great prices.

I dunno if you know this already, but in local stores, Grado's get a huge markup. In ontario, after tax, its approximately 50% more than the cost of ordering from the States.

Just make sure you ask them about brokage fees, sometimes you'll get hit with a $20+ brokage fee...

Use the credit card so you are protected. Alternatively, search eBay for even better price.

For Canadians:
I bought a pair of Grado SR60 and two pairs of SR225 from Brooklyn Audio, for about $620 delivered to Toronto. That included shipping, GST, and yes, that's Canadian dollars.

(Brooklyn Audio is located somewhere in Nova Scotia).

Brooklyn Audio, eh?
I just found this cool page with a few Canadian Audio dealerships [boy are they hard to come by] and their phone numbers. Here it is I'm gonna give them a call sometime this week, along with a few of the places in British Columbia.

db1: Do you happen to remember how much the sr60's were by themselves?
Also, lemme guess, you like Aston Martins [db1]? cuz i LOVE 'em!!!

I'm tempted to order the RS-1s from this Soundsellers guy. Does anyone have any experience buying from Soundsellers?

I've ordered 2 Grado items from them (SR-125 and RA-1), and both transactions were smooth. The goods got here safe and sound. If I recall the SR-125's were $120 and the RA-1 was $279. Not bad deals at all.

Just got the RA-1 from SoundSeller.........$279 plus $5 shipping. Professional, friendly, and prompt. Recommended.

Do you guys mean the RS-1 or am I missing something here?
post #14 of 16
no no no. The ra-1 is Grado's amp.....
