Yea they shouldn't have changed the plugs on SR325 and beyond, seeing how most people spending that kind of money usually have a desktop amp...

Agreed, I really don't want to have to put a 1/4" adapter on a 1/8" plug to use my desktop amp  :confused_face_2:

 

I mean, it will work just fine...but why 

 

I know people do use hi end cans from portable rigs and their iphones....but that number has to low compared to desktop rigs....don't you think.

Yes, and also I think starting from the SR325, Grados aren't really all that portable... The SR325 is too heavy/bulky, and the RS line and beyond are just too expensive to carry with you everywhere. I can understand them putting the smaller plugs on SR60/80/125 and even 225 since its still plastic and lightweight even though it starts getting expensive, but anything beyond that is a bad move in my opinion.

 

I'm a huge Grado fan and personally I wouldn't even use the sr60s on the go... They are just too bulky, I'd rather have a decent pair of IEMs, not to mention Grados are open and leak sound like crazy.

One more vote for 1/4 inch jacks on Grado's from 325 on upward. I hate those flimsy little jacks.

...good question!

is the 1/4 inch adapter the kind the screws on? if so then I don't mind. My Denons and Audio-Technicas both use those and I don't notice the adapters at all when in need to use them. if it is the lame 1/4 inch adapter the Grado currently provides with the 60/80/125 then that's totally lame.

while I'm curious to try the new E series but I doubt I'll be purchasing them since I have spent way too much on headphones in the last year or so. I would like to give the new pads a try thought.

No really, I've spent enough on headphones already, and have 4 pairs, which is too many for me, plus I'm very satisfied with what I have. It will be hard of course, and I would like too hear them to see if theres any differences, but thats about it.

post #15686 of 24256

I thought it was the other way around, and Grado put 1/4" adapters on all of the models, didn't realize they put 1/8" on most of them.

Well I can't speak as to how broken in each of the cans were. I believe the 325 was very and the 325is I listened to had had very little listen time. My own pair certainly opened up and smoothed out a TON after burn-in. Still is even now!

Am I the only one who uses the 325 as a portable? I'll go hide my face now...
