The GS-1000 is a prickly beast, but the excitement and musicality is unique to only those phones. Let the other phones be accurate and technically correct. Let Grado be exciting and fun. 

 

Precisely!

Another Grado fan here, I love my vintage RS1 with pink drivers smily_headphones1.gif


The other Grados I've heard sounded a bit harsh occasionally, but not this one - almost as smooth as a HD650, but still forward and fun sounding.

Admittedly they do not get as much headtime as the HD600 (and now the T1), and they are clearly not on the same level as the T1. But they are still the best "fun-sounding" cans I have ever heard, and I will probably keep them until they fall apart. Which, hopefully, will not happen too soon.

 

Oh, and of course they also look great:

HI there! Long time no see! I always enjoy your contribution to all Grado discussions.

It is also good to see some GS1000 love.

That description is quite accurate biggrin.gif

 

I am not entirely sure, but I think the earlier Grados had pink drivers, newer models have white ones. At least this seems to be true for the RS1 (see the RS1 identification guide).

The pink ones are usually associated with a smoother, warmer sound while white ones sound brighter and more agressive. FWIR at least. My RS1 certainly does sound smooth smile.gif

 

However I have no idea why your SR325is' have pink drivers, buffalowings. Cold be interesting to compare them to a "normal" SR325is and check if there is any difference in sound...

Seriously? Is everything OK? I saw you post in the sr60 mod thread about taking them apart. Did you break them?

Hey guys, I'm a retired guy= not alot of cash but I recently purchased some used SR60's and I'm hooked..like big time!!!

If you're willing to mod them, I'd just keep them and pimp them out. It's not too hard to correct any faults and get rid of parts of the sound that are "weird". Of course, if you don't want to do that, I'd suggest the sr225, or if you're feeling really adventurous, just go straight for the rs1s. I don't recommend anything in between these models. The sr225i is a definite step up, but be aware that with about 20 dollars in parts, and a little DIY, could save you hundreds of dollars.
