I've been listening for hours and can't seem to stop even to walk to the fridge to get a beer or even pick up the phone to order food. I may die of starvation and sobriety at any time with a massive grin on my face.


sounds like somebody need a 15ft grado branded extension cable....but congrats on your new setup

I think Kevin loaned his to one of his buddies that A / B'ed it with a Benchmark DAC. You can read those impressions here. and I added some comments as well.



 


Thanks for the suggestion! I'll have to check it out. I might be asking you some questions about it later, if that's okay.

I'm guessing you will know soon enough. The SR60's were my first Grado's too. Since that purchase I've had an SR225i, an MS2i, and an HF2. The HF2 is my primary can and I just woodied my 60's. Enjoy the journey.
 



Yeah, be careful with the head-fi bug, when it bites, bites real hard.

4 Years ago I was happy with my Senn PX-100 and ipod, then about 6 months ago I started just reading at the forum, 2 months later I decided to get  some Senn HD 238s (I said , what the hell, so I also got a Fiio e5 and  it´s LOD),

 

1 month ago decided to sell those cans and get my grados (SR225i) now I´m about to order my Audio GD Fun DAC - AMP 

 

my wife will ask me to divorce if I keep buying audio stuff biggrin.gif

Look at my sig.  smile_phones.gif  Same story here.

 

But I tell my wife, I don't gamble, drink, cheat, or hit, so what's the problem being a little obsessed with getting the best headphone audio quality that I can?

Viking, you know I hate playing thread policeman, but can you please refrain from copying a post which already contains a quote in its entirety ? I admit that yours isnt the worst example in this thread, but it really gets old. The line you wanted to address was the last line in the previous post - you could easily have deleted everything else.

 

Thank you,

this is where my journey began also. ive owned the 225I for a long time, and think its now time to try the 325I.

Of course. Thanks for the reminder. I will keep it to a "one post a quote" limit.

Don't you just love the Grado sound. I am practically jumping around the house in anticipation for my 225is. I have to wait a bit for the money, but it shouldn't be more than a week. 

post #177 of 20221

i think i may be grabbing a p51 for my next pair of 225I, since i sold mine, as my next major move back to grados, or looking for some hf-2.

 

i dont feel the rs1 or  other higher models rs2 will be beneficial to my horribly recorded deathcore music.

I have the same issue. A lot of my metal is just not well recorded or mastered. Its not awful, but there is tons of room for improvement.

@ Viking, congrats for the Sr-225i, as an advice, just be patient with the burn in process. Mine were cranky at first. I was really stressed. But after some use and frenquency sweeps  / pink  noise they got much better.  Now they should have arround 70 burn in hours.

@ Kevin, LOL that is a great argument! biggrin.gif. I would use it but the problem is I do drinkbeerchug.gif, whether is too much or not is relative, just like the volume on our cans wink_face.gif

Thanks! I haven't actually bought them yet, but will be getting them very shortly.
