Grado SR-225 owner, looking for something else - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Lol as I stated before go with Ultrasone. They are the closest cans to Grado but have a lot more bass and a lot more punch to them. Also, I find everything about my ALO-780 better than what the SR-225 did. Instrument seperation, soundstage, bass quantity, bass quality, bass impact, the high's are more tamed ad a lot more detailed, they are more comfortable, look better etc etc. The HFI-680 or PRO 750 will suffice your needs.The 780 stock are too bassy and uncontrolled. The PRO 750 has more detail and reveals more flaws in your recordings but is also a lot more comfortable thn the HFI range too

At 3X ($595) the price of the SR225 ($200) I would certainly hope that you find the ALO modified HFI-780 much better than the stock Grado.

Yes but I barely notice a difference with my UM3X when using my p-51 mustang amp with iPod touch 3rd gen 32gb and playing lossless files, compared to unamped. There is a nice difference but ít's ever so slight. I paid $350 shipped for my ALO-780 used

Just compare the headroom graphs. Youll notice grados tend to roll off steeply and a little early. Find a headphone that has good rumble below 55hz and lots of resonance if you want bass. I suggest mabey a closed design or IEM for the bass to build. Open air headphones sacrifice impact for bass detail and articulation.
