To Grado. Or not to Grado? - Page 12

post #166 of 168

The reason I sold my grado was how unrealistic the piano sounded. I find grado very weird, some things the headphone would do amazingly well and other things amazing bad. I ended up just attributing it all to frequency spikes. Im done with grado.... it's too bad because I think they look really cool.

Your are going about it the right way. Listening to the headphones is 10 times better than reading someone's opinions about them.

Let's know what you think- even if you don't like them.

You don't need to apologize for the "wars"  in this thread, they are harmless internet arguments.

Cheers!

Sorry this started some raging war.Though I must say I was aware that the conflict is a frequent one on the forum.  I got through to the store up North and after a week of talks with the guy, who BTW is probably the best owner EVER, is sending me two pairs of Grado's, either RS1 or RS2 (he's not sure which yet) and a SR225i.  I will be able to audition them both with my taste in musical genres and artists.  I plan on writing a super thorough review whether I like them or not, completely unbiased as this will really be a first impression and I have no former experience with other brands to sway my favoritism :D.  

 

I can't wait to really exam their ability to show vocals and mids, and really analyze how messy my music may become with headphones oriented in a sound signature or reproduction tendency typical of Grado's.  

 

Overall from this thread:

 

I have gained a rather positive impression of the sound signature as it relates to my musical tastes (and those of you who oriented your posts to relate to that I thank big time!). I still have hesitations pertaining towards the way I will respond to the peaks in treble, BUT these hesitations have been dramatically lessened via the thread.

I drive a 40th anniversary mustang with an upgraded sound system that came stock as part of the anniversary package...its a mach1 sound system and it sounds great, but I find that I EQ the treble all the way up to satisfy my desires, so I doubt the Grado line will be too imposing for me :D.  Guys thanks so much for all your help.  I hope this post will get back to all of you who had a response. I am left thoroughly satisfied and enlightened.
