As the distance between my couch(or kitchen) and my turntable is quite big, i use 2 of them.

Mind you, i'm not sure if my analogue setup is quite good enough to be able to tell the difference, but i can't.

My Grado extension is my 325is cord.  Fifteen feet direct.

Of course there's Erroll Garner's "Concert by the Sea" album and just about all of Keith Jarretts live recordings. I say if you learn to play "My Foolish Heart" convincingly, not necessarily technically well but convincingly, you'll have earned your advanced music degree, with honours. Isn't it great that we all can agree that listening to and enjoying music is a good thing?

Yeah, agreed! The tempo on that piece is so difficult to get just right. I think Bill Evans' is my favorite, and Keith Jarrett is a close second.
Keith Jarrett's Koln concert is one of my all time favorite recordings. The finale he plays is just stunning, and the left hand part is very difficult to sustain for as long as he does. I've actually had some discussions with my teachers about various recordings and styles and they have some interesting things to say. For example, at my school a lot of the other jazz majors listen to tons of bebop (miles, Coltrane, Joe Henderson, etc.) but not as much Diana Krall. Some of my friends and I have been playing a bit of it to stretch the horizons, and it's super refreshing! (I study Jazz piano, classical and jazz singing, and I play French horn and some trumpet)

There's a pretty cool jazz-ish album I found a while back in the soundtrack to Cowboy Bebop. It's a bit intense but man does it swing!
I also really dig Herbie Hancock's "takin' off" album from 1962.
(My teachers always tell me I need to start listening to more Bebop and "knock it off with the popular crap""
XD

And to whoever mentioned us all being able to enjoy the music, amen to that! Most of my musician friends are into audio stuff too (heck I know over a dozen grado owners!) and we all love em. It's so cool to have grado listening parties (we have every model from the sr60i up to the sr325is)
Sorry for the rambly post, I just love the music!
^_^

I also use my extension from time to time and have no sound quality issues.

I've read that anything longer than 15' will start degrading sound quality…but I don't know this from any experience.

I use mine extensively and never heard any difference.

Use mine all the time, with all my cans and do not notice any difference in sound.

Probably my favorite female vocalist on the planet... Her first album is still my favorite, but this and The Absence are both great too. Great call, man ;)

I use it for all my cans.  No signal loss whatsoever.  And I'm a picky SOB when it comes to that.

Since I got my GS1000 I have enjoyed them immensely. I thought it sounded pretty dang good from the beginning. They seem to be changing and for the better. The treble is finally settling and man these things just sound awesome. I didn't think they would surpass the RS-1 for pure enjoyment but these are gaining ground quickly. It is hard to stop listening. The bass is fantastic and the detail that these things come up with is amazing all the while keeping it exciting, that is what I love about Grado. They just make the music sing.

I am still bouncing back and forth...GS1000i...PS1000i...GS1000i...PS1000i...I think it would help if the names were more different.
