Yes, not even with the great Apex Pinnacle. 

Other than HP1000s and PS1s, all my Grados sound absolutely sensational with this amp.


I am fully onboard with the Sylvania 5751 black plate triple mica tube.....combined with the MAD EAR+.... the synergy is the best I have heard so far.

This is by far the best stereo system I have ever had, and the whole thing cost less than $1k. If anything else I think Grado gives outstanding value, show me another $300 retail phone that comes close to the 325i, it will be a very short list.

The 325's can really sound amazing with the right gear/recordings, I particularly like the thick vocals and guitar with this model, the miss can be very powerful at times in a great way.

The HE-300 beats the pants off of everything sub-$300 now that it's $150.

Yeah, maybe at $150 it won't suck as much.  It didn't stay in the house very long at all.

 

Re:  PS500 vs. 325i,  too much mid bass on the 500 for me.  Went away.

The PS500 is a lot more balanced with g cushions... They pads themselves need to be broken in first though lol

I did compare the 325i with the 500 for ten months, both with G-Cush.  Still prefered the 325i.

Different tastes yo! I do like the 325 a lot, I just prefer the RS1 and PS500.

I also prefer the PS500 to the 325is, my 325s are collecting dust right now...:L3000:

For me and some other I have talked to, it is due to the price and the Sound signature, the $700-$1000 dollar increase in price is, to me, not worth it.  YTMV

 

Yes, I have auditioned them all...

That's law of diminishing returns, hits other brands too, for exemple,  the LCD3 costs twice as much as the LCD2, and having heard both, I think that the $1000 price difference is just as hard to justify as Grado's GS1000 vs PS1000.

Agreed, LCD3 have only impressed me once (the Schiit Ragnarok did it) and the LCD2 are more to my taste anyway.

I can't take this right now. My wallet is already empty. Please Grado, think of the children!

That's a pretty interesting collaboration. I'll let one of you guys pull the trigger and enjoy them vicariously :-)
