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 #13568 of 26109

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 #13569 of 26109

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

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.

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 #13572 of 26109

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 ...

most kids listen to hip hop, rap, edm....that kind of stuff....grado not much good for that.

 

I use mine basically for classic rock and blues stuff......they really shine for those genres imho.....also for some jazzy stuff
