Also I'm spamming my 3D Grado cup thread here too. http://www.head-fi.org/t/696967/calling-all-grado-owners-3d-printed-cup-project-in-progress-need-cup-dimensions-3d-models

haha...I managed to resist last time. This is actually my second LD. I tried and stopped with the Sylvania GB-408A last time. 

 

joseph, I put in the Siemens. Haven't tried the others yet.

Possible my favorite Grado.  I sorta imitate them with the 325i woody/G-cush.

 

Lucky you.

PS1000/RS2 owner here

How different are the GS1000's from the PS1000's?

I'm thinking of upgrading the RS2, as i mainly use those at home, and the PS1000(or GR10) everywhere else.

I'm new on the forum - Hi everyone!
I own the SR-80i's and have used them on and off for over a year. I doubt they are broken in however long that takes. Anyway I love them and yes I want to upgrade further up the line as it can only be totally amazing from what I have read here. So many happy Grado people.
I am about to buy the Asgard amp then it's probably the PS-500's for me. So I would like to be in the club with everyone!

I really love this forum, it's just so much fun here!

Welcome to Head-Fi! 

 

YES! The Grado is indeed can last us long. I have never seen such thick cable before in a $100 price bracket xD

Don't be fooled...the cable is thick but the actual wires inside are surprisingly thin. Not to say that means low quality. I think that the sound speaks for itself not to mention there are many Grados out there that are 10+ years old. I'm sure many much older than that. Still working and sounding great.

Exactly, I like the thick rubber design. It makes me less worry about the cable while traveling in my bag. I'm going to count how long mine will last xD

My 325 is three years old and counting. Young by Grado standards...lol

The guy I bought my SR-60s from said he bought them in '97 or '98

Continue the legend!

I've upgraded all of my headphones including purchasing and selling SR-80is and test driving SR-325is locally. I just gravitate towards these old Grados everytime and feel no upgradeitis with them.

Edit: Other than tons of new mods
