When you get the chance let us know how you like the TTVJ flats with the 80's

 

 

 

You are not mistaking Joseph, I do own the HPA-2.

 

Although I used my stock Little Dot 1+ instead of the HPA-2 for this, I did try the TTVJ flats on my SR80is, and the first two things I noticed were that they had more bass extension and less treble extension.

 

Now, being that I always thought that the SR80i could use a little more bass, and that they could be a little on the hot side, especially with lesser recordings, the flats represent a win win upgrade. Also, the fact that a well trained chimp could perform the swap in under a minute, that it's relatively cheap, and totally reversible, makes this a no brainer.

stacker45, I agree that a well trained chimp could swap out the Grado pads in just a few seconds :D

 

I love how easy Grado made it to swap the pads out on their headphones.

 

I swap them out on my RS1i every once in awhile, as I own all of the pads.

 

I think Grado has it right by shipping the RS1i with the L- cushion.  The best pad by far for the RS1i  imo.

 

The MAD EAR amp makes the G-cushion sound better than it has with my RS1i at any time, but still not to the level of the L-cushion.

OH MY FREAKING GOD ITS BLACK FRIDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY !!!! lol

what grado goodies is everybody looking for ??

for me, hmmmmmmm

a gs1000i ?

another ps500?

a woo wa6 for the rs1i ? (even after josephs MAD ordeal, a MAD?)

oh the possibilities are endless !! it boggles the mind

first thing i'm gonna do for sure is pop in on TTVJ for some pads !

Jay...that GS1000i would be very nice :L3000:

 

I am just looking for some "smalls"......fill a few holes in my AC/DC collection.......clip on mic for gaming for my Q701 & maybe some cheap games off of steam........maybe a new tube for my MAD if I can find a nice deal.

my buddy focker, over in georgia, has a pair he bought at my favorite dealer in the ATL this year, so about brand spanking new,

he's making room for something new from audeze,, we've been talking.......

 

couldn't sleep last night, also saw a pair of senn hd700, a month old, bought from TTVJ, dude wants $560, or my lcd's, i said no to the trade lol

 

oh, almost forgot, i put in an order for a vali, just for kicks

did you end up ordering an amp from woo ?

i got interested in the silver one on the sale thread that you were talking about

a voice in my head keeps saying my rs1 needs a more "fitting" tube amp ! lol

i'm loving the soloist though, its a keeper for sure

I'm curious to how it sounds, so I didn't cancel the order, and like you said I can always send it back.

I purchased a new one this past Monday! Silver with the SP and 6EW7 tube upgrades. The one in the for sale thread was a bit too old for me, it was from 2007, and the guy wasn't the original owner, so I wasn't interested, especially since its still in production (I'm not saying theres anything wrong with this, but it wasn't for me).

I thought you may find them pretty good with the 80's and I hear exactly what you described with the flats on the 80's, so I think they go well together, but I still prefer the (L) cushions. I also like the comment about the chimp!!!

seriously, the rs1 and the 500 just complement each other so well to me, and while having the same grado sense of space, pace

the lcd's are great, but they are a  different breed, huge sound stage, deeeeeep bass

 

but before i get another 500, i'm curious now about a gs1000i, who knows what'll show up here next

 

Jay changes headphones more frequently than I do.  I must increase my pace, as I can't be beaten in this game.  :D

well, we had a talk, she doesn't get that this is a hobby, she thinks hunting,camping fishing, golf, are hobbies, her dad was a big outdoorsman, hunter, fisher, when he died,he left behind boats, guns, fishing poles, etc, he spent a ton on it. once she got the idea that this helped keep me sane, not the slaying of critters(i used to hunt, i just don't anymore) she kinda got a little more flexible ! lol

Don't get me started on my ex wife, she thought I was spending too much money on audio gear, and yet, she owned 35 pairs of shoes, (I counted them). I even bought her a pair of Sennheiser HD-480II, so that she'd keep her mits off my HD-600.

 

Every birthday when it came time to blow out the candles on my cake, I closed my eyes, made a wish, but everytime I opened my eyes back, she was still there, so much for this!.
