Damn it my username!!!!!!!!! 

 

Anyways no, i'm being honest. The m50s sound like if you were to get two sub woofers and put them next to my earlobe with a EQ.

 

 

So yea I'm in love with the GRADO.

 

I have an hd 600 and hd 558 also and they are good, But i like the brightness.. I actually like the brightness..

 

 

 

It's also really warm in the mids so i'm happy

The brightness will tame down after awhile....but I found them to be the brightest grado, that I have heard.

 

I also liked it though......liked how aggressive and fast a can that it was.

I had the chance to compare many flagship headphones at the last Montréal Hi-Fi show, and the comparison that surprised me the most was between the PS1000 and the Stax 009.

 

To my surprise, the PS1000 just wiped the floor with the 009, I mean, it wasn't even funny, the PS1K had deeper bass extension, a bigger soundstage, and airyer more extended treble. And then, I felt something tickelling my nose, I woke up and saw my cat face staring at me, it was all a dream. 

 

Seriously though, I always find it funny when people use these types of phrases to describe the differences between headphones, I did have the chance to hear many flagship headphones, at the Montréal HiFi show. And in my opinion, NONE of them, wiped the floor with ANY of them. They each have their own strenghts. I had the chance to hear the Stax 007/009, Audeze LCD2/3, HiFiMan HE6/HE500, Beyerdynamics T1/T70, Sennheiser HD800/700, and of course. the wouderful, Grado PS1000, and as far as I can remember, most, if not all, were hookup to Woo audio power amps.

 

I'm sure that those who really know me, didn't get fooled by the first two paragraphs, but I am curious to know who did, come on, I promise I won't laugh!.

Hell, I just figured you had lost your mind.:D

post #17602 of 19351

You make that statement about how those high end Staxes didn’t wipe the floor with the dynamics in the Stax thread and you’ll get a deluge of responses about how the Woo stat amps were to blame.  :tongue:

 

What freaked me out when I read your third paragraph is that I’ve heard a lot of those headphones on my own, lol. (exception of SR-009, HE-6 and T70) and, yeah, they’re all pretty good (well, HD700 excepted, imo) with various degrees of technical chops and musicality among them. 

 

if someone is aiming to get a flagship, it’s all about flavour, really. They all sound great. But how much does one prefer wide sound staging over smooth, chocolatey mids? You just gotta hear them and decide.

Ok.  You got me :eek:

 

But you did commit a cardinal sin. I think it's agains the TOS to admit, imply, or otherwise suggest that headphones in that league all sound pretty good.

A brief update on my poost-GS1000e experience.

 

Yeah, the sound of those cans- the detail, dynamics, and transparency of the GS1Ke still haunt me.  But I'm not buying them any time soon.  I have spent the past 2 weeks over-hauling my entire rig. I got rid of the ridiculous 15-foot Monster cable speaker wire, and replaced it with 4 foot lengths with locking banana plugs.  I got rid of 3 HDMI cables in excess of 6 feet and replaced them with meausred lengths ranging from one to 15 feet ( I'm moving my computer).  The biggest offender was a 15 foot subwoofer cable, now replaced with the appropriate 3 foot length.  I have claned, dusted, and re-arranged everything.  I even did a clean reinstallation of Winddows 7 on my laptop, and am loading it with audio/video specific software that I know, trust, and use.

 

The bottom line is my rig was a mess.  The GS's let me know that with crystal clarity.

 

Soon, I might be worthy of such a headphone

 

edit: oh yeah, all of the cable is from Blue Jeans.  I'm not a cable-freak  :wink:

and the gs1000e's aren't going anywhere anytime soon !

I would've loved to see your faces, it must've been priceless. I included the HD700, simply because they were at the same table as the others, and I'm pretty sure that Sennheiser sells a few of them.

 

I know that my headphones collection can lead some to believe that I can't recognize that other manufacturers make good headphones too. I just hope that my last post will put these beliefs to rest.

Just saw the James Brown movie last night-get on up....big recommend from me due to Chadwick Boseman amazing performance. He's amazing. Streaming the soundtrack now.
