So I will soon be able to compare the older SR325i to the current 325e, hopefully finding the 325i's Much Brighter.  Look for a report from me after they arrive in early June.

 

Aren't headphones FUN??????

Dedication!!

 

The funny/sad thing is that the price of a 325 doesn't seem like much for a headphone these days, at least not compared to all of the flagships floating above $1,000. I remember a time—not that long ago—when there weren't really any production headphones costing $1,000.

 

But I digress…

 

Interested to hear your thoughts when you get the 325i.

I'm usually a lurker but today I bought myself some SR60i's off eBay for just £35 so I'll be able to call myself a member in a few days (if they live up to expectations that is!) I'm seeing lots of cheap pads being sold but do you recommend dishing out £25 for the legit L pads or does sticking to the free quarter mods etc. Have the same effect?

Now thats how long my Sony 77ES lasted, that too me is a great product!
I really wish the Sonys (at least the current ones I own/owned didn't have this issue…it seems they are notorious for this. frown.gif

Joeseph, could you tell me more about the regs DAC? Have you compared it too the Über Bifrost?

Just subbed to this thread, was only on the SR-225 and SennGrado thread, looks like a more going on here.  @kayandjohn, love the comparisons of the various Grado's.  Already modded my SR-225e with removable cables using HIFIMAN SMC connectors and changed the thin plastic pad on the headband to a leather one.  Also built 3 SennGrado's over the pass year using 3 different types of wood along with different drivers and found these are sometimes better sounding than my RS2e and SR-225e IMO.  Still fairly new to headphones so enjoying reading about all the different ones.
