Technically, I don't think you are cheating...good one!

GS1K IMO.

IMO, it's the most "U" shaped Grado out there:

Being the mid-range are so recessed, and the highs so upfront the GS too me is a V shaped sound. What would you say from a listening point of view, not the graph?

I pretty much hear them the same as the graph...the mid-bass excess has been the one point of contention with me and the GS1000s. Hopefully the GS1000e fixes that. But, they are the most comfortable Grado's in production.

I tried them for about 4 days, and they just weren't for me.

Like I said in my last post, I found the lows/mid-range so far back from the upper mid-range/highs that I heard a very V shaped sound. Is what I'm explaing what you would call a V shaped sound, or am I under the wrong impression of what people mean by a V shaped sound? 

Thanks

Not sure...I just consider V shaped a quicker mid range dip than U shaped...but both are pretty much the same IMO.

Yeah, maybe I shouldn't have commented on that post.

I alway looked at it as the sound (lows/mids) was coming from a narrow distance in front of you, and then (mids/highs) eventually getting closer and wider.

Just IMHO, even though one can nit-pick at some flaws in the GS1000 series performance, the combination of very compelling sonics and the most comfortable headphone design ever leads to a super headphone experience that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

(I think thats the dictionary definition of "synergy").

So, in this context, even a marginal improvement from a GS1000e version would be awesome.

 

Edit: for me, the GS even makes the comfy HD800s seem a little clampy and pressurized (just relatively, of course, as I like the HD800's physical design, but the GS is significantly less obtrusive on my head). If anyone out there is even mildly obsessive about headphone comfort and has not tried the GS, I urge them to try them out.

Agreed about the comfort of the GS1000s...no arguments from me.

I used to very much enjoy the Grado sound, but eventually I began to really crave a flatter response. It would be nice to find a Grado that struck a balance between the typical Grado house sound and a flat/neutral presentation. I know the two are not complimentary, but if such a sound could be found ....

post #942 of 3409

Same for me, even though I prefer PS1000, I could never bring myself to sell my GS1000, and still reach for them occasionnally.

 

That being said, I have Grado hears, (smallish), so for me, my Bushmills X are as, if not, more comfortable than my GS1000.

It will be interessting to compare a PS1000 recabled vs PS1000e stock.

So i will keep my ps1000

I have been thinking about recabling my ps1000 using black dragon
I wonder if I should do that or just sell my ps1000 and get a ps1000e

I would have thought that an extra 10mm to the size of the driver would make a bigger impact on the sound.
