post #21136 of 21139

Hey guys, I was just wondering how good the SR325is would sound directly out of a Fiio X3? I'm debating on whether or not I should buy the Grado 1/4 to 1/8 adapter.

 

Also, I'm taking a trip for 5 days this week and wanted to take the SR325is with me. What would be the best way to do this? Should I just wear them around my neck the whole time? Any worries with taking them through the TSA security line at the airport? I don't have a box or case and am planning on travelling light, so I don't want something bulky taking up luggage space.

 


Thanks!

I just got my SR325i (gold) and my FiiO X3 and tried them together for you, using the high-definition original-analog-master recording of Limehouse Blues from Jazz At The Pawnshop (a GREAT album!).

 

Sounds really superb!  I had been listening multiple times to that same recording with either X3 -> HPA-1 -> HP1000 (HP1) or X3-> RA-1 -> RS1i.  The X3 -> SR325i is right up there, though it may have just a tad less bass than the other two, a bit less soundstage than the HP1000,  and a bit less transparency than the RS1i.  But miniscule differences I only heard on A/B comparison!

 

FiiO X3 has a low output impedance (0.4 ohms), and the Grado headphones are rather low impedance (32 ohms).

Thanks! I just bought the adapter!

 

I'm going to let my brother try the SR325is. If he likes it I might let him keep it!

+1 on tha album. I have also Jazz at Pawnshop 2 and it's also equally good, in fact I listen to it more.

Also, compare the high-res with the DSD version. If possible compare both that are derived from same master tape. The difference is mind-boggling. A LOT more realistic. The distances/volumes of each of the instruments became MUCH more precise!
