Sadly my Alessandro MS-Pros are not getting much use as I am spending more time with my speakers in my new house. They sound great but need a new home so I will be listing them in the FS section...

That amp needs to be with an HP-1000.

Hoping I'll love this one-off tuber near as much...

 

I believe you, the HP1000 and HPA2, do make magic together.

And if I were in you shoes, I probably woul've done the same thing.

I prefer tu use the term, different stuff, as I've said before, I think that the sweet spot is at about $500 - $600, after that, it' every headphones game.

Congrats on the new babe.  Can you give us a ballpark figure on what she cost?  Roughly.:D

His amps are not expensive = labor of love

I'm 2nd owner but I was told $485 new for this one and it is built like a tank with good parts.

He shut his website. and I understand he only works by phone now and pretty much just for friends/old customers.

His amps do come up on a-gon as his customers seem to have more than one.

Bought a pair of SR60 10 years ago . Loved them then and still love them now after thousands of listening hours . They were a best buy in Stéréophile list and still are now . A good Quality product will last for years and the company has lived with its tradition and keep selling the same lineup since then instead of doing like others and changing models every years . What a smart move in my opinion.

They are definitely Grado. From the cheesy packaging, the cheapish build feel, the hated Grado cable, right down to that beloved Grado sound. Sadly I don't have the equipment to make my Grados really sing since my LD1+ died, but using my Cmoy and Keces DAC, I manage to get by. Anyways, playing some tracks off Foobar2000, so far I can't say much...they are Grados. Those that were worried that the Grado sound would be lost with the closed back, don't be, it wasn't. I will say that Grado might be on to something with the closed back....these things are bass monsters (for a Grado). Still has the ever present highend, mids a bit muddy maybe? I think that's going to be a lot due to my equipment and needing some burn time. Just my very initial impression after just a few songs so far.

I am looking to sell my LD1+, reason being between all of my components, I now own 6 amps, it is in excellent condition! (I have everything it originally came with + upgrades). PM me if you are interested.

Hi guys, I wondering if someone can help me out. I currently own a pair of HD600s but don't like them. They just aren't exciting enough for me to get into the music. I'm not sure if the correct term is veiled, but I definitely know what people are talking about when they mention it. Things get better when I turn the volume up, but not at the loss of my hearing. Therefore, I'm considering either the SR225i, SR325i or RS2i, although the RS2i is out of my price range so it's going to have to be pretty damn impressive for me to buy them.

 

1. What are the differences between the three cans?

2. I mostly listen to rock (classic, alternative, indie, folk). Think artists like Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Stone Roses, John Mayer, Arcade Fire, Pavement, The National, Bright Eyes but also My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Ros, Stevie Wonder, and some pop . I know that Grado are renowned for being rock cans, but does any particular model handle these genres better (I won't be listening to metal whatsoever)?

 

The headphones will be used with an O2 amp without the ODAC, although I'm planning on getting this soon.

I've never heard the RS2 but I owned the 225 and 325 at the same time. The 325 has a bit more bass and treble. The 325 is also heavier and not as comfortable over longer periods of time. If your music is lossless or high quality mp3 then I recommend the 325. The 225 is better for more aggressive music. also regardless of which one you go with make sure to try the tape mod. Basically add some electrical tape around the outside of the ear pads. Slightly warmer sound signature that a lot of people like.

Thanks for the interest, but ArmAndHammer had responded to my offer, and I'm waiting to from him again shortly. I'll let you know what happens.

Also keep in mind shipping costs, I'm in the U.S.A

Grado is perfect for you. They are anything but veiled. Keep in mind, if you like lots of bass, you'll miss that with Grados but they do highs/mids wonderfully. I have the 325's and they are awesome. I recommend them to anyone. Especially if you mod them and use the G-cushes. I've listened to the RS1 and RS2 and they are also wonderful. To my ears, not enough difference between those two to warrant the price difference. The RS2 seemed slightly warmer in sound, not sure if more refined is exactly how I'd describe them but there's certainly something to the woodies that make the special. I just received my Bushmill woodies today and so far they've been simply awesome.
