I have always found all of the Grado's that I have ever heard, pretty darn easy to drive......but for me personally....that is the easy part.....it is all about getting the most from your cans....the synergy is where it is at for me......many amps will drive your headphones just fine.....but when you hit the right combo....you just know it....you hear it and feel it.

 

Does this make any sense to anyone.....lol


just a wee bit laddie

The high freq is sharp, I tried tube and solid amps but no one can control it.

I definitely understand that amping them (to me) absolutely makes a difference, but I don't understand why you say this. 

 

Bass tightens up, more clarity. Some will also say that the highs tame, but I've never experienced this problem with my 325is's.

They are awesome headphones, enjoy them!

You see, from what I've read/experienced with the 325is's is that some say that they are bright, and some say they are not. There was also a head-Fier who posted that they had purchased about three pairs of (new ) 325is's, to see if QC was the issue and they where not consistent in sound, being that some where very sharp/shrill in the high frequencies and some where not. I happen to have a pair that in IMO are not and never were sharp/shrill in the high frequencies. If they are new, give them time to burn-in and the highs may tame down, otherwise try some tube rolling to see if you can resolve this issue. One thing that I definitely noticed with my 325is's is that they are very picky with amplification, IMO. But like I said mine are awesome, and I've used them with the LD1+, Magni/Modi, WA6, but when I used them with my Adcom GFP-710, I didn't like this combo at all, they were very veiled/dark, and this was not a good match IMO, but all of the other amps (to me) were fine with the 325is's. I also own the 80i's and the RS1i's, which perform well which all of the amps I mentioned above, so its  a little strange that the 325's didn't match well with the Adcom, but all the others did...

I'm no expert, but the way I see it, the Grados that come with a 1/8'' plug are more than likely meant to be use mainly with low power, portable devices, and are therefore easyer to drive than the ones that come with the 1/4'' plug.

I happily concede all of those except #1. Thanks for posting! I really enjoy the pleasant spirit that surrounds much of head-fi. I'm an AVS veteran and it can get fugly there in a hurry

so The only thing left to do is to explain to my wife that I NEED the gs1000 to make some important measurements for the head fi crowd. And for completeness I need at least a couple new amps....How can she possibly say no?

its better to ask for forgiveness, than permission ! lol, (i've made that mistake before !)

i'm kicking it gs1000i style this morning, i think the rs1i and gs1000i are a great combo

and if one can't got gs, go ps500, almost as good to me, and cheaper

Hello All

 

I need some help, I seem to have broken the pivot between the arm of the headophone and the ear cup itself.

 

Any ideas on how to replace or mend or get it fixed.

 

THanks in advance.

Has anyone tried the PS500 with the G cushions? Thoughts?

Riffing on Jay's post-I am totally, unabashedly the antithesis of an "technical guy". I'm sure I don't have neutral, golden ears. I've spent most of my life listening heavy arse rock, punk and metal only recently acquiring tastes for jazz, acoustic and electronic music.

 

Just a point for all of us "big picture-less details people"-For me-any art-film, music, theater-is a sum of its parts. How many films had all the right elements-a good script, top notch director and a list actors-but somehow miss the mark.

 

It's an emotional gut feeling. Numbers mean nothing to me. It’s all kind of smoke and mirrors to me. I just ask one question of myself-"how does this schiit sound"! Is there an X factor...some hard to pinpoint wow factor regardless of the math. Which is why when I go to meets, I totally dig on the uber top end LCD's, Staxx  and so on-yet my little $200 225i still give that rawness that much of my music craves...like a great shot of tequila vs vintage wine:veryevil:
