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

 

"Red-eye reduction did not work with my flash..." <-- Pun intended??? :p :p :p

The yamaha hph 200 is supposed to be a grado killer up until the sr225 (some say either is better)

Do not want to sound like a Grado "Fan boy", but really? The wire on the HPH looks so flimsy, and the headphones have this "meh" look to them. I have no clue how they sound, but for $250CDN, they look like any random Sony headphones you can buy for 40$ at Future Shop, or Best Buy... Just my opinion...

Returned. the PS500s in the end. Too warm/ bassy/dark for my taste. Never thought I'd say that about a Grado. Back to the Beyers for me, sorry.

Did you try the RS1's and the GS1K's?
post #17126 of 27128
No I'd love to but both well out of my budget sadly

At retail prices both the RS and GS are cost prohibitive. But there are many good head-fi members who routinely acquire, sell, and yes even reacquire, these fine headphones. You can often find these and other hp's on the buy/sell/trade forum at some very attractive prices from time to time. Even if you can't afford them now it's always good to familarize yourself through audition with different hp's so that when the opportunity presents itself you can buy with confidence.

The RS1 is $100.00 more than the PS500…or you can get an RS1 used.

post #17129 of 27128

I's not that big of a difference,  when you consider the fact that RS1 comes with a nice 15' extension cable, wich, as far as I'm concerned, is a must, because Grado's cable, are on the short side.

Our fig tree runneth over.  I get about five pounds every other day and that's just the ones I can reach from the ground.  Maybe another week and then, wait'll next year.
