Yes definately HP2's, I'm kinda hoping you paid like at least $400 for these if they are functional but at the same time I'm glad if you got a good deal on them.

Where could I find a cord that would enable me to listen to them?

 

Got any friends who have a guitar amp or a stereo receiver or home theater amp? You can get an adapter here.

They do, it will be like $9 usually. Don't take them the headphones, It's not safew to carry around $1000-1500 piece of electronics. If you break it or it get stolen that would be a sad day.

Hmm wow I feel pretty dumb lol because I was going to take these snowboarding with me if they worked. I guess if I ask for a 3.5MM STEREO MALE TO 6.3MM STEREO FEMALE ADAPTER, they'll know what I'm wanting then?

Try "1/4 to 1/8 stereo adapter" The other things I'd suggest you buy are a Woodie upgrade and G-cushions.

$45 but worth every penny.

you should change the name of this thread to "Bought Grado HP-2 for $25" 

This thread whould get ALOT more attention

The Hp2's come stock with the L-cushions, do you have them or are those pictures all that came with them? IF so get the G-Cushes.

 

Also the woodies are a custom job if I remember correctly, it's a pretty extensive mod if you do it yourself, and includes with submerging your headphones in hot water if I remember correctly.

I think there's a place that does the woodeing for you. cant remember the name of the website or if they do the HP-2's or not, but they had a bunch of grado mods available
