Do those fit straight in without an adapter? If so, what family do they belong to?

Then I will plug in my iems at bedtime and maybe listen to another album.

Thats where you need to get yourself a bedside rig :) An indispensable imperative to help one drift off on a evening. One final escape from the terrors of modern life before sleep encapsulates. :bigsmile_face:

 

heres mine 

 

Or more recently

                   

 

But all you need is an ipod - modi - LD1+ and of course a Grado of choice. And this will still leave room for a book, glass of water and narcotics :D

Or a carefully drawn out extension cord with a choice playlist will do nicely also ;)

That is an awesome bedside rig  :smile:

 

I have used my cmoy and Grado SR60i before.....but I prefer my cmoy with my iems....they just seem so much more comfortable , while I am lying in bed.....plus I can turn from side to side ect.

Well... Thats a fair point :)

 

I thought it had digital input. But apparently it doesn't. 

 

Ipod - Docking station - Vdac! - LD1+ Grado's.

even if it did it it doesn't mean it can bypass the ipod dac. only a handful of companies have chosen to purchase that ability from apple..

More experimenting with the 225 and 325. Neither seem to match up well with the WA6 for me. I'm getting a much fuller/richer sound with the LD MKIII. The MKIII is also hooked up to an E10 as a DAC so that could be playing a role. Going to try the WA6 with the e10 next.

Both sound great straight out of my ipod too.

And there are only a handful of capable docking stations to use with an ipod so that point is obvious. These will work fine as long as they have spdif out. 

 

Lots of people use set ups like this these days.

does anyone know how a woodied grado change in sound signature?
i was thinking of getting these ( http://turbulentlabs.com/classic-vibro/ ) for a future project for my sr225i (witch i think are a bit bright as stock)
post #12510 of 17393
I woodied my sr80 and did not hear a huge difference. Maybe and I mean maybe a little bassier.
