Is there any other alternative to the grado 1/4 to 1/8 inch adapter? Don't really want to fork out $15 for a little adapter. Great improvement from my old sr80is, can hear so much more it sometimes sounds like a totally different song. 

Was listening to some non-remastered jimi hendrix songs and the soundstage from the 225is made it sound like it was mono in the beginning, when in reality it was just mostly out of the right ear. With the sr80s it soudned almost equal on both sides.

Check out AudioQuest's website, I believe they sell a 90 degree adapter…don't know the price. The Grado adapter is a very good adapter, and although  someone knocked into yours (unfortunately), the reason there is a short extension between the two end is so it has flexibility,and this doesn't happen.

I'm sure you'll enjoy them even more once you get yourself a good amp :) *Docs orders here too! 

 

Oh, and I spend most of my life in a sleep deprived state so I wouldn't worry about your ramblings. Ramble is all I do :D

thanks for understanding and I am definitely working on getting my prescriptions filled :)

 

looking at building an amp and picking up a dac somewhere, I may be able to purchase my friends gungnir.  He doesnt use it much.  As far as amp goes, Ill have to see what I can put together

Thank you CH23. Been up all night listening to everything. You know how it is. I obviously can't complain about the equipment. It's the music that matters.

They are often criticised for being bass-lite, and it's true there's not a great deal of sub-bass on offer. But the bass they do produce is incredibly natural and tight, and perfect for rock.

 

(Edited to correct shocking spelling)

if you're worried about bass may I suggest a fiio e11 or a fiio e10, both have great bass boosts. 

post #13570 of 24045

That's good advice - I already own an E10 and the bass boost works well. (In fact, I was defending the amount of bass Grados produce, as I think it's more or less perfect for rock music ;))

post #13571 of 24045

No, yeah, i agree. they represent perfectly how bass should sound in rock songs. 

post #13572 of 24045
I already own a Fiio E18 which I could use but I feel my ODAC / O2 would make better partners. I don't mind bass-lite if it's bass-accurate too. The one thing I find difficult to take when using headphones is over-emphasized treble. I hate that.
post #13573 of 24045

I'm heavily considering getting some wooden outer shells. You guys have some absolutely stunning ones. Where/who should I snag a pair from??

post #13574 of 24045

WHat's the best dac for grados? ANyone?

 

 

I love my fiio e10 but in the future I certainly think I can upgrade from that haha

They are definitely bass-accurate. When the bass is needed, it;s there :D

 

However, they do produce a lot of treble, so you may find that an issue.

 

One thing I've noticed on the Grado threads is that the age range of the posters tends to be a little, errrr, shall we say higher than the Headfi average (and I'm not one to talk ... ) and so perhaps the treble doesn't affect a lot of us in a way it might do for a 19 yr old.

 

Also, the music that the 'kids' are 'down with' these days is generally so poorly recorded that it comes off as very harsh on a revealing headphone like a Grado ... grumble .. grumble ...
