you got security clearance ?? of course if you told me, you'd have to kill me right ?? lol  :ph34r:

Security clearance per se.  As a counselor, I'm not privy to state secrets.  But privacy is a whole other level on a military base, so I had to clear a very extensive background check to be able to work.

 

I also had to admit to being a Grado fan.  The did not take kindly to my opinion of the RS1  :tongue_smile:

Actually, I might celebrate by selling some gear.  My recent experience with the GS1000e is making me think I don't really need my Schiit Bifrost Uber...

 

I bet someone on here could give it a good home!

Heck Jay, I'm excited for you to get 'em!! I know you'll have some good words and maybe some pics for us ;)

....

I received a few days ago some new 225s to try.

I've let them play for 50+hours before listening.

Then compared them to my 80s and....I don't seem to hear much difference!

I use flac files + macbook + Leckerton uha-6s mkii

:confused:

I haven't tried swapping the pads yet but, I don't know.......what's your experience?

Is the sq noticeably different between the two and I'm kind of....deaf???

post #17108 of 26090
Which 225 and which 80?
post #17109 of 26090

They both have the "orange" drivers. Officially the "i" version but I have been told that here in Europe (...maybe elsewhere as well?) the were selling the new "e" version drivers inside the older "i" cups......

post #17110 of 26090
Yeah, "RedEyes." Well, if those are both RedEyes, they shouldn't sound so very different. Different yes, but more similar than an e and an i sound. Also, bear in mind that you're comparing the two SR numbers that sound most similar.

Looking forward to the pictures, I also want to know if they are being shipped with the newly designed G-Cush.

Wow.  I didn't even think about taking pictures!  My close-up photography really sucks.

 

This one's a little dark, but with some photo shopping it might look ok.

 

 

Over head of the pads.  This might quell any "size of pad" controversy from the Grado conspiracy nuts.  The new G cush is on the left, although I'm sure some will claim I reversed them...

 


Side view, and they are definitely deeper as well.  These things are fricking huge in the wild!

 


Red-eye reduction did not work with my flash...

 

Hopefully some skilled photographers will present more elegant shots.  I'm a landscape guy, and don't really have a good perspective for macro shots

:biggrin:

 

 

 Definitely Grado-approved!
