Hey guys.
What is the "Grado In House Sound" like?

post #17177 of 26182

Interesting article posted yesterday on ARS technical. Includes a visit to Grado and mentions where the drivers are built (or not built...)

I’ll give you 2 bucks for it” like it’s a garage sale. the meat of the sale is the headphone. Most people either don’t want the accessories or would like them thrown in for free.

 

just my experience. I had grado hard carry cases and ended up practically giving them away

 

That's pretty much my take on it as well. If you're going to throw in accessories, don't let them impact the sale price (much) or you'll have a hard time selling the cans. That's also why I don't bother with accessories unless I'm sure I'll keep that particular pair of headphones, or can use the accessories with another pair.

These forums aren't used for salesmanship though. If you look at the trends, it's extremely rare for anything to sell for anything above the "average head-fi used price". Really, if you want a quick, hassle-free sale, then Head-Fi is great. you're dealing with people who take care of their gear, know what to expect, and it's rare for things to go wrong, that's the interest of selling on Head-Fi (it's a buyer's paradise!). If you want to squeeze out every last dollar, you might as well use ebay. It'll be hard to succeed doing this here.

I realize fully I haven't priced them to move quickly. I'm finishing up demoing some other cans that will be my next purchase, so I wanted to list them just to get them out there.(I included the original box with warranty, and also a very comfy headband I made)
As you'll notice it says best price also. I didn't prove to move just yet. They'll go down, but I purposely wanted them to stay for a moment (there are some people who have already expressed interest in it though, so back fire
: P )

Well hey, if you can sell them at that price then good ;) I think something in the 220-240usd ballpark will get them sold for sure though. Don't put too much stock into DIY stuff, it says in the rules that you can't sell anything you made yourself above the price of parts.

Yeah I read the rules! Everything is below the price of retail so it should be fine.

 

Thanks for the advice!

 

Happy Listening! :beyersmile:

Haven't had much time the last few weeks to listen to much music. Decided to do just that when I woke up this morning, so turned on the LD1+, put on my RS1i's and let the playlist go.

 

Maybe that small, unintended, break was just what I needed. Holy crap, those sound so good! Preaching to the choir and all that, but it's hard to appreciate how good Grados really are sometimes until you step away and come back. :gs1000smile:

Bifrost Uber is up for sale.

 

Grado fan pricing?  Maybe...

Absolutely!

 

It's been a few days since I mailed the GS1Ke to the next guy on  the tour, and I just spent some real time with my 225i's for the first time in a while.  Goosebumps and smiles the whole time.  I feel like I might be ready to off of the merry-go-round and call it done.  I will still give the HE-560's a listen, but I'm leaning towards just enjoying what I have.  Because it sounds stellar, and that last 2 to 5% is pretty pricey.

Definitely agree!

Sometimes when I don't listen for a few days, I get blown away all over again!

Grab yourself an SR60i.....$79 new....cheaper on the b/s/t forum for a used pair or e-bay.

 

With the SR60 you will know what the house sound is.......and it is very good  :smile:

Amen. Especially with a set up like that :-)
