Anybody loving the O2 with Grados around here?

 

I'm using the SR80 with an ODAC.  I love them both! I have been using the SR80 for 6 years by now. 

Since the SR80 has a pretty low impedance an amp isn't necessary.

 

I don't have much experience with high end headphones but does anyone have a recommendation for an upgrade or mod for a student budget?

actually, no pedals

 

I wish I could remember the guys name, but there was this black guy I saw on PBS "Austin City Limits" a couple times and he plays a steel guitar. He starts out sitting but by the end of the show he is dancing all over the place (while playing) and just shreds that guitar. I had never seen anyone play a steel like that before or since. I'll try and find something on youtube, a lot of City Limits stuff ends up on there sooner or later.

 Oh and just for those who might be interested, the is a Bottlehead Crack on ebay. Very rare to see one of those show up anywhere but particularly there. Not a good Grado amp but a lot of you have other phones besides Grado. Price is good so far but bound to go up considerably.

Yep that is who it was, that guy is great. I found one of his records on amazon but the quality was really poor. Gonna look around some more and see if I can find a good one.

Robert Randolph is just fantastic, to say the least....no doubt one of my favorites.

whirlwind, why are we up so early??

 

Took a few more pics last night, more out of boredom than anything else. I think Grado makes some classy looking headphones!

First of all....those are beautiful pics....nice work.

 

Well, I get up every morning between 5:00 and 6:30.....just naturally....the older I get...the less I sleep....usually I get about 5 hours sleep, and it seems to be enough.

 

So I am up and listening to some music .....well this morning I am listening and watching my new Joe B. dvds.....and checking the forum every now and then  :smile:

I guess it is better being old, than ancient  :p.....so we are not that bad off.

 

When the dust settles....I will have a metal cup Grado in my line up again....either a PS500 or 325is.....more than likely PS500.

Thanks, guys!

 

I'm used to waking up at 6 during the workweek, but wish my body would let me sleep in just a little on the weekend, haha.
