Now we're talking. Have fun.
As long as we are going on about the 325is. I was listening to a blues song the other day and I heard something off to the right but I couldn't tell if it was wood blocks or some other kind of percussion instrument (on my HD650). So I grab the SR325 and listen and then it's 'Oh yeah it IS wood blocks" The ability these phones have to let you listen deep in the mix is amazing. Any time I get new equipment the first thing I use are the 325's to see what I got and if it is any good or not.
I think Grado's are some of the most detailed hp's in the business. Nothing is missed from the mids up. Only when listening to large complex orchestral pieces does my HD800 beat them in this area - but a large soundstage helps here of course.
Here are some pic's of the WA6 with 1/4" oak side panels, after trying out the brown floor laminate, which looked very cheesy, but I did like the idea of the wood side panels on the WA6, as some amps do come with from the factory.
My father did the cutting and radius to match the face plate looking straight on. Due too my vision, I only came up with the idea/color to go with the brushed/flat aluminum body of the Woo. I also intend to do the transformers top cover, and possibly the face of the volumeknob, I don't want the wood to be overkill! I used Martha Stewarts (BARN RED) from Home Depot since I could not find a stain in the (RED) I was trying too achieve. Wearing a vinyl glove, I wiped the paint on with my fingers then immediately wiped it off with a cotton T-shirt, repeating this 3 times, until I achieved the color I was looking for.
I know I am late to the party here but:
325i's were to bright for me (maybe I should send my pair to joseph69 for comparison?), they are just sitting in their box...
RS1i's were just, I don't know, 'off?' to me, something not quite right to my ears.
PS500's are the ones for me, with G cush.
I auditioned them all at the same time and the PS500 came out the winner.
