Yeah I don't understand it myself, but believe it or not it may be the weight which contributes to the comfort.
Also the 325's I have had the longest out of the three, so the cushions may be shaped to my ears better than the others. I try as hard as I can to never let the cushions rotate to a different position, even when I take them off the drivers, I mark them so I reinstall them in the same position, as well as L/R sides.

 

BTW, I'm hoping to receive the Ear+HD today, I can't get away from the front door!

I bet you are looking for the delivery guy, constantly.

 

I hope you get it today!

 

I splurged and bought a 5751 Sylvania triple mica black plate tube from a fellow head-fier the other day....be here some time early next week, I suppose.

Thanks. I'm really happy with it. Took the day off to be here for arrival and give PS500 a good listen. 

 

About the MP3 collection, I found the last "must-have" model on my list (Samsung W3L) so I'm mostly done with this project ... mostly ......  

 

Check out this rare DAP, very cool. (not my video)

if i was looking for a dac in the $300US bracket, the hrt products are killer, the dragonfly, and i almost kept the dacIT over the bifrost

So you recommend the Schiit Bifrost? :)  I guess I will give it a try! :D

i like mine for sure, its all very subjective though, its always best to listening before you buy if you can, or if you order online, make sure you can return it if you don't like it

Good point... I guess I could get my LD I+ first and try that with a V90 in the store (I know where I can actually buy that) :)

Yeah the UPS,USPS came already...empty handed!

Maybe you can link me to seller that you purchased 5751 tubes from, so I can purchase one, being mine is coming with a 12AX7, this way I can try them both...please. Thank you.

post #10089 of 16830

I got mine here at the b/s/t/ forums

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/674369/some-tubes-for-sale

 

I believe that I was told by seller that it was a Brent Jessee tube....so I suppose you could get one from his website.

 

Here is the link to his homepage

 

http://www.audiotubes.com/

 

I am going to guess that the tube your MAD EAR comes with is going to sound very good!

Thank you very much for the link! I'm sure it is going to sound good also (according to Lloyd), but from what I've read they have two totally different signatures, so I'd like to hear them both and see what I prefer. Thanks again!

BTW, have you ever heard the 12AX7? Sorry if I asked you this already.

No...I have not heard the 12AX7, mine has a Sovtek 5751 tube in it.

I just picked up a pair of MS1i's after having sold my SR225i's a few years ago.  As much as I typically prefer a more-lush tone to my headphones I really have missed the Grado signature for a while.

 

I'm listening to Jose Gonzalez - Veneer through my Bifrost/Asgard and I'm really loving it.

So you are trying an American Sylvania, instead of the Russian Sovtek, because the Slvania is supposed to be a much better tube?

I believe I have read a few posts that do say the American 5751's blow the Russian 5751's away. This is only what I have read, not from any experience, what so ever.

Yes, according to some the Sylvania 5751 triple mica black plate is one of the tubes that really shine with the MAD EAR +HD......we shall see.

 

Even though I want to try this tube, I am in no way disappointed with the sound I currently am hearing. I actually love the sound with the Sovtek tube.

 

I guess that I am more curious than anything.

Good luck with the tube, hope you like it also. I'm going to order one myself, thanks again for the info. And I should most definitely be getting the Ear+ today, (hopefully).
