Question for anyone who might know:
Does anyone have a comparison between the Grado SR225i and the HiFiMAN HE-300? They're close in price, but I know that means very little. Which one would be recommended? I've heard the Grado SR60i and SR80i, but didn't audition anything above that (will change tomorrow, unless someone says something spectacular about the HE-300s)
I don't know much about the he-300's but I can tell you that I love my grados... For certain things... Jazz, vocal performances, acoustic and some rock. They can make you feel like your really there... But then they also like to remind you that they have limited punch in the bass regions and sound weird and out of place... Taping the bowls helps a lot... They sound much more detailed then the sr80's and aren't as harsh... Hope that helps.
