Bump. Any other Grado fans around? More comments?

Really? I've never thought my SR60i's were veiled at all.....in fact, I wouldn't want to try the bowl pads at all, the comfies are just right! (asides from EQ-ing a bit of  bass)

My SR-125i drivers are slightly angled... right facing the back of my head, left facing the front. It's just slightly angled, but it's there.

Is this a common occurrence due to the gluing? I could heat it and realign it, but I'm a little curious if anybody else has this on theirs.

This is my opinion too.  I love the sound of the SR80i and SR125i with the comfies ... so much so in fact that I use comfies with the SR225i, the MS2i, and the HF2i.

 

I have RS2i's on the way, and I already have an extra set of comfies earmarked (sic) especially for them !!

 

I think the bowls are too bright.  And I think the jumbos are too bright.
 

But ... everyone's personal preference for tonal balance is different.  beerchug.gif

With or without the quarter mod? I supose you are using the Senn HD 414 pads

I still haven't had a chance to get a good listen to my RS1's. So busy this week. Can't wait for the weekend! :(

 

edit: One interesting thing though... I found the RS1's to have more life and detail when I amped them with my Headstage Arrow rather than the Little Dot MKIII. Overall they were just much more enjoyable with my portable amp. lol.

No qtr mod.  Like I said, I think the Grados that comes with bowls are too bright.  Just a personal preference.  The comfies tone the brightness down.

Hi! I'm still enjoying the CD you got me! Haven't listened to it for a couple of weeks, but it definitely is good stuff. Thanks again biggrin.gif

MS1i fan here. I love the sound with bowls and the tape mod: airy-open sound, detailed and great punchy bass. They are just awesome for the value.

I amp mine with an Audio GD Sparrow that I'm pretty happy with. Kevin has one too so you can get his impressions as well, but for $183 you get a great DAC with a good headphone out to drive your HF2. I think Kevin loaned his to one of his buddies that A / B'ed it with a Benchmark DAC. You can read those impressions here. and I added some comments as well.

I'm glad you like it! I'm enjoying silent alarm, too (listening to it right now actually smily_headphones1.gif)

Hey everybody, first post!  After using a pair of Sony MDR-V500s for the last 5 years (I know, I know...), I decided to step things up a bit.  Picked up some SR60s yesterday and the difference is mind-boggling.  If this is their *low-end* model, I can't imagine how good the others must sound!

post #150 of 18645

Welcome from another newbie here! 

Yes, the SR60s are well known for having an outstanding value-price relation. As they burn in, you will see how they get better and better,

After that if you want to improve the sound I recommend getting an amp (PA2V2 is a good option), If you are using an ipod as source get a cheap Fiio LOD for better results

Happy listening!
