Loving my new 225is, except for the gian't cord and the need for a 1/4 inch adapter. Bought a straight adapter on accident off amazon and already broke the headphone jack on my laptop with it (someone knocked into it and it bent out of place). 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.
