Did you ever hear anything about this? Dead curious now...what is the random red-stuff? Does it look like damping material (ie: Dynamat)?

just listening to some carpenters (uncharacteristic for me LOL) and thinking about a recent active thread on the "best headphones for female vocals".  i'm just being stubborn and closed minded i know, but i can't imagine how karen carpenter sounds better on any can than she is on my rs1 right now.  just awesome.

Drivers flush to the cup and random red stuff. Would that effect being able to put wood cups. SCARRY!

we'll stick it up here when I am done.

Awesome! Super intrigued with what you have to say on the matter. Are you pairing the LD1+ with any DAC?

Maybe they are just painting the back of the drivers red now, like how some older Grados have black-painted drivers, whereas others are left as bare metal.

Cocobolos just arrived! :o2smile:

 

 

 

 

Quick first impressions compared to the RS1s:

 

More treble energy (almost 325 esque), mids aren't as rich, and bass is quite similar although the RS1 wins in texture.

Sometimes you just listen to something you haven't spun for a while and are blown away with your Grado sound. I'm listening to the Who's Quadrophenia. Damn! It sounds so great. Kind of perfect Grado music.

 

It was remastered in the last year or two. I read that the recent remaster is actually pretty good. I have the 1996 version-a remixed and remastered version (MCA MCAD2-11463). And, it sounds pretty darn sweet. Pete Townsend is a freaking genius. Such a good album-1973.

 

I listen to most of my music via speakers and use HPs sporadically. Honestly, often late at night or when I'm listening to something hyper aggressive and anti social (read-extreme metal and punk).

 

I like the impact of speakers and the ability to move around the house and frankly the ability to crank the volume without damaging my ears.But Grados do sound killer with classic rock. Going back and forth between my 225 and my speakers-the Grados won tonight!

 

That said-the Who rock my speakers in great form as well:bigsmile_face: 

 

Definitely my fav Who record..I like it even better than the ever loved  The Who's Next.

 

I don't listen to the Who often, but when I do it's Grados and a Dos Equis

Absolutely gorgeous!

 

I'm still in talks with a person to buy his Bushmills - just waiting for money to go to my paypal before I can buy it.

I listen to the Carpenters often, because Karens voice is just amazing, as is the music, IMO.
