Same here...

 

I have yet to come across something which is not at least acceptable on my Grados.

Particularly jazz and ambient too) and the creator actually sent them into Tyll from Inner fidelity to get them measured and the measurements can be found here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/Gradheiser650DIYModifiedthelostMIDrange.pdf

 

I really cannot imagine myself selling these but. I am really interested in seeing what's the most I could get for these. The creator stated that they were one of the best pairs of Magnums he had ever created and if you look at the measurement sheet, you'll understand why this is extremely impressive :).

 

It's funny, I hadn't listened to these for a few months because I've been absolutely obsessed with the Grado 325is. But, not since I've posted them to see what I could potentially get for them I've been jamming to them nonstop. The ODAC's clarity is completely utilized with the Magnums. Everything is so natural sounding. It's literally as if I'm in the front row of a show. I know most people have reported similar reactions to the ODAC/Magnums but. I don't get the same clean, clear sound with the Grados. They are more colored. Which is what I'm usually in the mood for, hence why I have the LD1+, but. Goddarn, these are some amazing headphones.

 

 

I really don't think I could muster the ability to ever sell these. I received these on my birthday two years ago and to this day they still astound me with how fantastic they sound. 

 

I'm currently jamming to some Beatles and Spaceman 3. How about you guys?

 

Noooooo!

 

Don't sell them! No one has seen @thelostMIDrange making or selling cups in ages...

I actually talked to him back in March. That's when he showed me the measurements Tyll made for my headphones, and told me that the headphones he made for me were some of the best sounding headphones he had ever made. I'm not sure if he was telling me that to be nice but...

 

it's certainly something very cool. As mentioned, I do not really plan on selling these. I simply wish to see what they are potentially worth and to gauge people's interest in potentially buying them. I would love to be able to put a definitive value on these. Especially since they're the product of a person who was undeniably a genius at his craft and who longer is really in the game anymore...

 

but outside of these being my favorite headphone, they simply sound perfect for my tastes in music. I could never really sell these. I truly believe I'll hold onto these for many, many more years to come. I received them exactly on my birthday, which was on march 22nd, 2012. They look and sound exactly as the day I received them.  Which was even cooler of TLM. He helped me put together my dream headphone...and then it arrived on my birthday...the exact day.

 

What a cool guy. One of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of the interacting with. Including both online and in real life.

Am I the only one here that thinks it's weird to put your favorite cans up for sale just to see what they're worth?:confused:

No weirder than posting ones thoughts on a forum specifically devoted to one brand of headphones.

Maybe not but at least we know we're wasting our time.

Not a waste for me. It's because of the crazed and over zealous hp fanatics on this thread that I've got the nicest pair of handmade in NYC Grado's ever. All I need is need is another pair. Maybe some PS1K's if enough pixie dust can be sprinkled on my wallet.

UK Grado fans! Amazon currently selling SR225i + Grado case bundle for £170  (£30 cheaper than the price they are asking for the 225i on it's own!)

post #14364 of 21247

That's still the best part of $300, but it's what amounts to a bargain price for Grado on this side of the Atlantic :p

O.K., I need to let this go.  Just seems unfair to offer something for bid when there was never an intention to honor any of the potential bids.

I agree it would be nice if Grado came out with a closed back headphone.  

Now I gotta work on getting Megan Fox topless out of my head!

If people are found to be erroneously using the B/S/T forum they'll get shut down. I thought if you wanted to find out the going rate for a pair of hp's why wouldn't you just post a few pics on this forum and ask? Too simple probably.

Grado contacted me, and confirmed the story about the John Grado RS3, and it is all true…but their not too happy about the seller selling them, being they were signed and given to him in appreciation and respect from John himself. Maybe you should think about this, and hold on to them out of appreciation and respect.

I would have to be broke and starving before even consider selling an item that John Grado (or Scarlett Johansson) signed and packed personally for me... That's just me.

Personally I would want something else from Scarlett Johansson.
