yeah, but at least you are not spending more for fancy packaging :p

Grado could try a larger, thick cardboard box with a matte black finish and the words "XXXTREME BASS" in large red letters on the front, but I think it might backfire.

Well they're not 100% Grados but my Alessandro MS Pros are currently in transit to the destination. Hope they arrive about the same time as my Schiit M/M stack. Then I guess I'm set for a while...

Surely I will tell you what I think about them but I've only owned/auditioned SR325is so far so that's the only thing I could compare. And I don't have them anymore so I'll have to rely on my memory.

Unfortunately all tubes that are available for me are listed here: http://sklep.lampyelektronowe.pl/ With one would you pick?

Listening to my sons 225i thru my MAD EAR.......this headphone sounds great with the TTVJ flat pads.....good stuff.

I listened to the 225i with my MAD EAR before I wrapped it up to give to him, because I bought it 2nd hand and wanted to make sure everything was ok with it, which it was.

 

The 225i sounds great, make no mistake about it.....if I were going to buy my first Grado...this would be where I would start personally.

 

It is way more refined that the SR60i that I have.

 

When comparing it to the RS1i.....it holds up fairly well...but does nothing as good as the RS1i, IMO.

 

This is in no way a knock on the 225i...some may actually prefer it and maybe I should compare them both through the LD1+....which I have not.

 

For me personally, if I owned the 225i and the RS1i....I am afraid the 225i would not get the warranted head time that it deserved.

 

I am afraid for me the only headphones in the Grado line that could swipe some head time from the RS1i would be the PS500 and above.....and then....I am not positive that be the case, but more than likely it would be.

 

To me the RS1i really does not have any faults that amount to anything when matched to an amp that give you some great synergy.

 

Do they have a big sound stage....no....but I am not a fan of big sound stage with my headphones.

 

This is pretty much exactly how I feel between the 225i and the RS1i - and I have both at the same time. What doesn't get mentioned very much with the RS1i, and most headphones in general, is their instrument separation. While the soundstage on the RS1i isn't huge by any stretch, the instrument separation is really something else that even headphones double its price can't match.

 

Being able to listen to all the sound at once, and pick out a single clarinet in a symphony is really extraordinary. The 225i's just give you that constant, in-yer-face, wall of sound that is fun and engaging, but doesn't ever give you a chance to be tranquil (or zen!) with your listening (if that makes any sense at all).

Yes, that makes perfect sense and I agree 100%...the separation is fantastic and much better than the 225i.

Yes, indeed.

 

And like you have said before, the MAD ever adds more layers to your music, along with the great seperation
