Explain what you're trying to say!!!


I took it as he was making a joke about Mac vrs PC...as in, the "inappropriate" comment could be...(This is only an example).

"Gee, it works on my PC's maybe you should switch..."

Or some other Apple Vs. PC comment like you would see on their commercials as of late.

 

I would think he was just poking fun and that is why he didn't actually say it...:biggrin:

:D 

Tell you the truth I don't find your comment too amusing, do me a favor and keep your wise cracks to yourself, I'm trying to reply the threads and having a really hard time, I don't find it funny!

And further more I could care less who has what and who thinks whats better, grow up, and don't add fuel to the fire while I'm having difficulty just trying to write a sentence, really don't appreciate it!!!

First off, chill. Second, this is the Grado fan club thread. If that guy's joke isn't appropriate then neither is your tech support issue. Please do us all a favor and keep it to yourself.

On topic, liking the 225s but there are some major caveats.

Wow, time to take a break if that one obvious joking comment sent you over the edge...just sayin'....and Sorry, I found it humorous and I can't help with either of your issues.

 

Back on topic:

I just received the Grado storage box and it is OK but not great.  There is a portion of the laminate flaking off the bottom and the lid needed to be adjusted slightly to line up right.  The printing on the lid is also very light.  It will be a functional case but not anything I would recommend anyone else to get. Particularly for the price...I would expect better quality...

Ok so I spoke to the seller and he wants them back... He said they were fully working and tested by multiple family members before he sent them off... Lol
Gonna have to find some more super cheap now frown.gif

Hello,I'm thinking about buying grado rs2. I'll be using them with Fiio e10, what do you think about this combination? Currently I'm using modified grado SR60 and I'm in love with them, but I would like something more.

post #10972 of 26182
I use my RS1 with an e10 and e17. I really like Fiio products and I find they are a good match with grados.

If he refunds me the money I asked for, then I will keep them and send them off to Grado, if not, then they will have to go back frown.gif

You know when you're excited to get something and then something goes wrong, it breaks your heart! Haha!


Hey SJWorne, remember we were talking about the two pairs of 325is' on eBay? Well you might be able to get a pair sooner than you think. Unless things change quite a bit according to my ears in a day then I'll either send them back to the the guy I bought them from or sell them myself. Far too uncomfortable and bright for my liking. They sound amazing for the first 5 songs, but then I have to take them off.

 

To anyone else reading, how do you think I'd fair with the SR225is'? I know they're not quite as bright which is clearly a plus for me, but how about soundstage, detail, imaging and comfort? The way they handle soft rock, pop and indie is also very important to me. In other words, non-aggressive music. I actually ordered a pair of K601's yesterday to try and fill the gap between the HD600's and 325is'.

I've owned both in the recent past. If the 325is are too bright for you, the 225i aren't going to be much better. They were a touch less bright to my ears, but it was really just different flavours of the same sound, not a night-and-day difference.  Comfort, on the other had, was much improved - the 225i are much lighter and put way less pressure on your ears.

 

FWIW I thought the 225i were by far the better headphone - they sounded more 'natural' than the 325is (even after I woodied my 325is!) and the comfort improvement was significant. They do sound different, just not that different ...

I probably should have said too harsh instead of bright. It's the treble that's too much for my ears. I actually quite like the bright sound, as it really has me tapping my toes and feeling the music. Does this change your opinion?

PM'd you! :)

Also, what cans do you have at the minute?
Have you heard the 125i's?  I love mine but just thought I would try the 325's! :)
I was thinking we could do a bit of a trade? But I don't know what you have at the minute anyway :)
