Are you also in McKinney? If so, I would love some local store names to check out. I have only been out there for a year or two, and have been at college most of that time.

I've actually been by MyHomedia in Plano. They have some very nice cans as well as superb home theater designs.

Hey guys, I have a bit of a n00b question. I know it's probably silly, but I am still very new at these headphones. I got my Sr 80i in today (bought it new) and they sound lovely so far. I was looking at the cable, and I saw this. I did not do it, because I have been walking on egg shells with them, since these phones represent a new child rolleyes.gif Is this "bump" looking cave on my cable okay or do I need to get on Amazon and contact the seller? It's the bottom of the two cables..this is where the main cable has split into the left and right ears. Bottom cable is the left ear. Thanks for putting up with my newbie questions.

My 325is have the same look.

AnalogMouse: I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy your phones.

 

In general you will have to take care that your wires don't twist around too much. As you've probably noticed, the cups can spin 360 degrees on their posts; if you twist them too much, the wires can break. This usually happens either within the cups or at the yoke. It's fairly common for Grados to lose one channel because of this.

 

Make sure you register your phones with Grado - if your SR80i goes south, the company provides excellent warranty support, and they're very prompt with email responses.

 

When you can afford an amp, go for it; you'll notice the step up in quality. Even a cheap Cmoy will do wonders.

Yeah, I read about the wire issue. I just make sure that I never turn the earcups all the way around basically. I don't want to sound paranoid in my previous post, I just want to make sure I get as much joy out of these cans as possible. Do you have a suggestion for a certain type of cmoy amp? I know absolutely nothing about amps to be honest.

 

Bbop, it makes me feel better knowing your 325i pair has the same look.
