I haven't bought a headphone in about a year so I think this year for my bday (in less than a month) that I'll snag the 325i's. They seem to be just what I'm looking for. They would be paired with my e10 and LD1+ with the tubes/opamps listed below. I listen to a ton of really fast and aggressive music and I think that it would pair perfectly with 325i's. Also, they are right around my preferred price range. Wanted to scoop this can, and maybe a few records for the birthday smily_headphones1.gif. Thanks guys! 

feel free to check out my other thread on magnums/grados and the comparison between the both 

You sir, want the 325's. I've had those in the MS2 and based on what you described the 325 maybe a match made in heaven. While you're at it you may want to buy some G Cush pads to try out as many of us prefer those on our 325's

Awesome. yeah, the more I read about it the more convinced I am that the 325i's are the perfect answer to balancing out my magnum lol. 

 

And I have bowls right now but I'll definitely look into it!!

Favorite, my Ms-Pros, but i've never had to the chance to hear a GS or PS.   Also never heard the MS2 but i do own the MS1 and Pro and on that basis i can say they are not what you are looking for, the 325 would better suit your tastes IMO.

I also owned the MS2i and my friend owned the SR325is (purchased at the same time) and we wound up swapping out the drivers because I liked the agressiveness of the 325's more than the bit bass heavier/less forward mids of the MS2's, and vice versa. The only reason we swapped the drivers and just didn't trade headphones was because I liked the MS2i cups (without the buttons) and he liked the 325is cups with the buttons, so I have 325is drivers with, with MS2i cups and I love them. You should really love the 325is from what you say you are looking for. The (G) cushions IMO take away from the fast/aggressiveness/intimacy that make the 325is what it is IMO, but many people do tend too use them, so its all a matter of preference. I've tried the (G's) with the 325's, and didn't care for them at all, but we all hear differently. Good luck and enjoy!!!

This is also what I'm afraid of ;) I still ordered a pair of G cushions though, but I doubt they'll replace my TTVJ flats.

How do you take the drivers put of the 325/MS2? Heat them up like the plastic headphones?
post #12459 of 19422

Yes, you heat up the metal cups until you can pull the driver cups out.

Yes, I did it with a blow dryer, and being they are aluminum they heat up very quickly and I slowly pulled them apart, and them used a hot glue to re-install the drivers, worked excellent! Also the hot glue will heat up easily if I ever need to take them apart again for any reason.

Ok that's what I thought. I'm finding the bass on the 325is I got to be a bit too much, they have been vented (4 holes), I'm thinking of sealing 1 or 2 of them.

New headband from Turbulent labs for my PS500s. Was a little bit worried about installation but it only took a few minutes and didn't require any tools. Comfort is great and I think the tan leather looks great against the silver of the cups.

the 225s I got from the classifieds came with a black one. I really like it and will eventually get one for all my grados.

Nice! Those look great. I just got my PS500's in the mail, only to find out my ***** mixer's headphone jack is broken :/ but tomorrow my 1/4 to 1/8 adapter will come, then when my odac+amp comes that'll be even better, but luckily grados don't need amps.

This was the main reason I liked the 325is over the MS2i…the bass.

I think the 325is is just fine stock. I tried the vent mod with my first pair of 80i's (2) holes, and hated them, they lost their excitement IMO. So I tried to fill the holes with hot glue (stupid move), and it dripped onto the drivers, and that was the end of them! So I immediately bought another pair and put the Vibro Labs "classic" wood cups on them and (L) cushions, and they sound/look beautiful.
