which are the most neutral sounding grados?  or is this even a serious question -_-

 

I like the flat sound signature of DT880 / Triplefi 10

Agree, I like these cups better also

gotta say that i prefer the design of the gh1. i'd rather see grados retaining their edge. wink.gif the gh2's cocobolo cups also look shallow compared to the gh1 in the pics.

I feel the same way judging from the pictures. I'm not too fond of the rounded edges. They look too much like DIY IMO.

Grados usually aren't described as neutral... and the TF10 is often described as rather V-shaped. If you're coming from that kind of sound, I'd agree that he aforementioned HP-1000 and maybe something like the 225e?

If you want something that's more mid forward like the 880, I would have a look at the RS1 or RS2e. And if you want something a little more V-shaped, check out the GS1000.

Agreed on all counts!

I agree as well with all the above statements on preferring the GH1 cups.

The wood is beautiful - as a drummer I see boutique drums made of that wood, and they can sound great.  But unfortunately I agree with the DIY look of these...

Grado finally uses a beautiful, interesting wood and everyone complains that it looks DIY. This is why we can't have nice things.

biggrin.gif lol, the wood looks good! it's the rounded edges we're talking about. All we're saying is we prefer our Grados to look like Grados. wink.gif

But my GS1000e has rounded edges...  

 

I know what you're saying though.  I like the look of Grados as well, but it's a limited edition, so we have to keep an open mind.
