When going back and forth between the 225s and 7506s, the similarities certainly outnumber the differences!

Thanks for the tip... Will definitely try to get a hold of those 7506s...sounds compelling

Agree, maybe I'd prefer them to my m50's, they are about the same price

I need closed cans most of the time since I'm always on the road, and portable (isolating) "grados" sounds like fun....

For you guys who are interested, I was able to pick up the Sonys for around 60 bucks used. Just keep your eyes peeled on the sale threads and eBay

Am I the only one who finds these uncannily similar to the Grado sound? pardon the awful pun...


First headphone of any quality I owned was a V6, but I thought it sounded god-awful . Now I know everything I had at that time was awful so it is no wonder the headphones sounded that way.

I just left HDTracks and I thought I would read through the forums while I think about what I want to download..Patricia Barber or Ella. That's a real difficult call.

Listening to the 225i now, I'll save you the trouble, they sound GREAT!! As I posted earlier though, they never sounded this good until I got this amp (Lyr). I think it is that Synergy thing Jay is always talking about. These are pretty much my favorite headphones at the moment. The 325is are just a little to bright on this setup. but the 225i are JUST right!! I am afraid to try the RS2i on here, I wouldn't go to bed for about 3 days.

Like I really want some purple Stax-009's. With diamonds!

Maybe you don't but some people do mod the 009:

As long as everybody is posting videos.

 

 

 

And this, her ability to morph her voice into that of several different singers is nothing short of amazing.

As long as you guys are posting vids maybe someone knows of a good one from Shannon Curfman. I know, you don't have to say it, chicks playing the blues. Whatever!

Just wanted to post a positive experience with Grado customer service. I had an issue with my PS500s where the cup came loose from the cimbal, most likely due to user error. I emailed Grado to inquire about sending them in for repair, but they insisted it wasn't necessary and sent me two of of the gimbals free of charge. I think that was on Thursday, and the gimbals arrived today. 

 

Thanks, Grado!

Awesome! Glad they were able to take care of you.
