Is this a real Grado SR325is? - Page 10

post #136 of 153

you have a couple pairs of HP-1000's?  nice. 

 

I hope to hear a pair someday.  Right now my Magnum's are my favorites and probably will be for a long time.

just got my ms2i's, fantastic headphones. I had both colours in hand, and picked the chromes. Much nicer in real life compared to the photos!

I just cant get past the chrome look... I'm still waiting for my 325is to come back from Symphones, getting very anxious

Let me know how good the magnums sound, I'm also thinking about one day upgrading!

I wanna get my hand on some chrome 325is/ms2 when I get my polarized lenses filter for my camera and take some nice pictures, I feel that would give a more true to life photo of them .

SR325is are not chrome anymore, and Alessandro's will also stop stocking chrome MS2i.

 

Grado now use the finish of the PS500.

guys.

im planing on buying a pair of this pair of headphone, but guys, do you know exactly if this is just a chrome paint or a real stainless steel can?

when they were crome they were real crome and not just paint.

If the headphones are used primarily at home, I seriously doubt there would be any issues involving wear-and-tear to the finish on these cans. (We're talking chrome plated cast-metal housings here, after all...I have seen chrome/gold-plated plastic bits on other cans - my old AKG K-240s come to mind - that wore off or thin after a year or two's regular use.)

As far as aesthetics go, I'm fine with the chrome finish on mine (325is).Perhaps a tad less subtle than the brushed-metal 325i, but (IMO), far less bling-afflicted than the gold originals. Whichever version you have, I have a simple suggestion: put them on, put on some tunes, close your eyes and just listen!

Did you do that yourself? Did it change the sound signature much? Nice looking.

Thanks to all.

 

MartinCustomAudio did the cocobolo look.  You know, when you send your HP's back for customization and it's a 4-6 week turnaround and then you get them back, well, it's real hard to remember the original sound sig and compare them in your mind.  

 

They sound real good right now.

These look just like my wife's which are authentic. Hers are quite shiny and chrome.
