It's his self-titled. When the LP was first released they used Haeco-CSG technology in the pressing. Neil heard it and had it re-pressed and the originals recalled. He hated the sound...

I am flogging a copy of the Haeco-CSG version. I think I am being optimistic on the price though.

if they are that "anti grado" maybe if i'm wanting more, i should go further up the grado tree , yikes lol (i can't let the wife know lol)

also, i sometimes think i'd like a closed set of head phones, the akg 550's are ok, but they don't really excite me

IMHO with vegan pads the Audeze is more like the PS-500, awesome bass (but it goes deeper in the sub-bass region than the PS-500) with liquid mids and laidback trebles, if you love the PS-500 then you might love the Audeze, you should try them jay smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, I have not heard the Audeze, but I do have two planar cans, listed in my signature.  As much as I love the Grado's, there is something to be said about the absolute power of true bass down to 30 Hz.  The planars deliver.  The Alphas go as deep as anything I've ever heard, but it's not exaggerated or boomy.  It's an awesome experience.

 

But man, they can be pricey, especially regarding amplification.  I use the HE adapter on speaker taps, so power is never, and I mean never, an issue or a problem.

 

For me, I use my planars for high-resolution stuff that I am confident is superbly mastered.  For every day use, the Grado's are my can of choice.

i do love the ps500,

i think i have power covered with the lyr

the lcd 2.2's are about 1.5 hrs away, and i could probably get them this week, weekend

oh the humanity !!! lol

May I submit-that Led Zeppelin's triple disc live recording "How the West Was Won" and their recent reunion "Celebration Day"  released last year sounds about perfect on my 225i's.

Who are you fooling Jay.  Once you get a planar, you'll want to stop up to the Mjolnir   :p

post #10360 of 13897

well, it looks like i'll be able to compare the lcd2.2, the ps500, and rs1i, THE PLAN(yeah i know) is that one will go.

i did have to make one sacrifice , the uberfrost, and some cash for the audeze's, glad i have the explorer to do the DACing

and i got sold the akg's today too, so, some inventory moving here at the ranch !

I'm looking @ getting a pair of 325i's and am wondering what the best sounding ear pad is?

 

These?

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006GCCO0/ref=oh_details_o09_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Hmm...unavailable. These are the same, no?

 

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/544613-REG/Grado_L_CUSH_L_CUSH_Replacement_Foam_Ear.html

 

The amazon listing notes large, but b&h does not.

Same pads. Buy from BHP with confidence.

Those are the pads your 325is came with originally.

L cush only comes in one size. The 325 was designed with L cush in mind, I'd say that's the best place to start and probably the best sounding but that's subjective. B&H is a good place to buy.

Yes:

SR60i / SR80i / SR125i come with the S Cushions (aka 'comfies')

Only the GS1000i & PS1000 come with the larger G Cushions (aka 'salad bowls')
