Considering you can swap the earpads on all of them (with exception of the igrado, igi, gr8 and gr10) i'd say all of them (with exception of the igrado, igi, gr8 and gr10)

Cool. What pads would I use? I've never thought about getting them before, but now I'm interested.

What model Grado do have, and what cushions are on them now?

Wonder in which dimension the E 12 falls short? For example, it is spec-ed to put a respectable 880 mW per channel into the 32 ohms of the Grado PS 500.

I've ordered "much of an amp," the Sennheiser HDVD 800, so I'll see if I hear a difference once it arrives. Thanks!

Well, nothing at the moment, but I'll be looking into the Sr325e.

guys... i need an advice....

i have grado sr60i for years. maybe around 4 years i think. around a week ago the grado sr60i decided to broke down. sad day.

my grado sr60i left channel broke down. just the cable connector between the left driver really. my temporary solution to it is, when im listening, i push the left cable upwards, and the sound comes out just fine (gets tiring after an hour to hold the cable in place). when i just leave the cable hanging, there's no sound. i'm definitely going to buy a grado replacement now. initially i was set on just buying the sr60 again.

but then... the more i google the more i read that sr60 and sr80 is "not an upgrade, it's just just different" not so much an upgrade. and the "sweet spot" of prestige series is sr225i. but then there are also opinions that say if a person have the means to get sr80, live a little and get sr80.


i have exactly $165 that i was about to use for buying fiio e17.... i can't save more money than that because my financial situations doesn't allow me to do that for the foreseeable future.
(also, the reason i wanted to buy fiio e17 was because it's the cheapest dac available where i live. since im using a dell laptop, and as some of you know, dell laptop audio is pretty bad (hissing and stuffs). No fiio e10 here in case anybody ask...

so, on the topic... to be honest i totally completely fine with grado sr60 with it's comfies pad. despite many reporting it to be quite uncomfortable. i myself find that the clamping force and the way the comfies just "hang" on my ear to be totally comfortable.

it's even more comfortable than my $300 shure headphone. the shure is several level better for music. now for movies, im still using and appreciate my sr60 more.

i don't really mind buying the sr60e because i have zero problem with this, and even though i own another $300 headphone, i always go back to my sr60i because it's so comfortable for me, to listen to for 10-12 hours session with its comfies pad.


checking out the prices here sr60e is ($90) sr80e is ($110) and sr225e is ($210). $45 is not a stretch from my $165 fiio budget though.

so... my question to you guys is.... which one should i get with my quite limited budget...?
is the sr225 differences in sound justify the differences in price...?

ps:: the local distributor that sells it doesn't give audition so im relying entirely on you guys comment...

Up to the SR325/i/e, the Grado line is a great value for the money. After that, it's diminishing return, but many still find a PS500, RS1 still worth it.

Some prefer the (G) cushions on the 325's, but most leave the stock (L) cushions on. 

It depends on what you like best as far as sound/comfort.

You may be able to grab a used 225i for the $165 that you have saved up.

 

I would say the 225e would be worth the step up....but the 60e and 80e would also be great cans at a great value.

 

You really can not go wrong with any of the three you mention....the sr60...sr80...or sr225
