Nice looking Mutt n' Jeff headphones. Is that a few ounces next to a little over a pound? I'm also looking to find a big mama for my RS1i's. Maybe some LCD-X's, though I'd like to hear the Hifi Man HE-560's first.

Exactly right. Audeze does it right. Haven't heard any of their new gear. Just LCD2. That was it for me. Finito. No more HPs. Sound is so natural and REAL. LCD2 beats several $2K+ floor speakers for clarity, musicality, and even, dare I say, soundstage imaging. Not kidding. But only when amped right.....

 

See my headphone page for more fun:

Be well, my friend.

Very interested to know your impressions of the HE560, in due time. It's apparently quite a bit lighter than LCD-2. That's the one gripe I have with them. Not SQ. Go figure. PM me in due time to tell all. If HE560 sounds like LCD2....the trigger may be pulled ..... again.

Thanks.

A little after work Grado jam time... yes I'm playing along on my guitar... open cans are awesome to play guitar with when you have no band around to jam with...

And what's up with that right earcup! I don't quite get it. In my opinion the drawing is kinda deceiving. I was expecting the phones to have this new look, but nope. Same old.

 

I wouldn't expect Grado, of all companies, to roll out new looks more than once every 37 years or so, hehe...

E-mailed John a while back re. new box. He said freight costs were a big burden. Hence the smaller box.

Practicality above all.

I'm interested as to what my impressions of the HE560's will be too. Early reviews point to the 560's mids rivaling that of some Grado hp's, with their weight and comfort significantly improved due to a new headband design. I like your website. How do I leave outrageous and nasty comments on it? Lol.

Yeah, me too.  But I also have my ears out for the Oppo.  Will probably wait for the PM-2 though

I read a couple glowing reviews of the Oppo PM-1's. They'll have to go a long way to surpass the musicality of my Grado hp's though.

I know I just came in here to get the Led out, but here's my second favorite band:

Pink Floyd – Fearless - 2011 - Remaster

 

Not my favorite Floyd song, but the amount of depth in this song is insane, and the Grados do an excellent job to compliment it.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Thirteen album or the newest, but Endgame was absolutely unbelievable for guitar licks, not the best recording but oh so fun. Probably my favorite Megadeth album after their nest era ended around RIP/Countdown/Youth depending on your tastes.

Thirteen grew on me after a year or so... Supercollider  has its moments but its an average Deth album...
