Thank you for the info. Ya, $100 is probably gonna be better right now

I dread going there. Its almost to the point where I dont go there because of it. It usually winds up with me be frustrated and leaving, instead of looking at the beautiful works of art. 

Ahhh.  I've actually been waiting for at least one person to just email me to say if they don't like it.  I've been wondering if it works for most people or not.  

 

I'll be changing it back.

 

Sorry about that.

Well, it WAS kinda busy.  I was O.K. with it but I can see where other people might not be.

 

Love your work!

Another proud owner of a pair of SR80i's, and Grado fan here. I bought them in November 2011, lost them somehow and recovered them a couple of weeks ago.
These things are amazing; but they impossible to get in Costa Rica, and very expensive to import.
After a couple of hundreds of hours reading forums an spin research I decided to give them a try and I had some mixed fellings at the beginning, finding them a little harsh and uncomfortable (I even ask for advise in head-fi to "solve" the problem). After some days of Listening day and night, either they are fully burn in, or my ears have become used to them and started to love the sound. Now I am afraid am I might be infected with Grado upgraditits.
Any way; I love them now, and can't get them out of my head. I love the sound signature for my music tastes, and find them not uncomfortable at all.
I think I might be upgrading some time soon, and do try DIY's in the future. smily_headphones1.gif

I purchased a set of Alessandro MS1's earlier in the year, 2012 and loved the sound. They just happened to be my intro into headphones and what they can do for the portable and home music sound. I liked them so much I just had to do some upgrades, I replace the headphone pad with one from Beyer and swapped out the pads for the 440's yellow. Then I did a search on line for the best in-ears for a trip to Florida and came across Shure's 535's and fell in love with these when I want to block out the world and enjoy the music (sound isolation at the best). BTW the Alessandro's and the Shures are the same price $100usd. Then I started looking into a set of cans strictly for home use with the Denon receiver or my new Hifiman HM601 slim and found my BEST pair yet AKG K240's ($80 on closeout). The bug has taken hold and will not let go, if there are headphones out there that sound better than either of the ones listed then (under $1000)  I am, and my budget will not hear them. These in my Honest Opinion are the cream of the crop and music just does not get any better. BTW when I rip music from the original source I rip in lossless format either WAV or WMA lossless, since FLAC seems to be to much of a hassle to rip or store. Plus not many (excluding my Hifiman) will support FLAC. If you have never hear either the Alessandro (GRADO 80i) or AKG's it is worth your time to check them out your ears will thank you.dt880smile.png

Nice post  - I loved my MS1i before I started along the upgrade path.  Great gateway to the Grado world IMO.

 

I highlighted above - because I think you might have the model slightly wrong?  Thinking you mean SE215?  If it is SE535 for $100 - I'd love to know where you got them wink.gif.

Ugh, sorry man, I just got really frustrated cause I went there after seeing the one guy's pic of those beautiful PS500s that he had and I just wanted to get info from your site on how I could do that to mine. I felt like I was playing a guessing game trying to figure out where to find the info I needed and it wasn't really clear to me the best way to navigate it. 

 

I wouldn't have even gone there if it wasn't for the fact that I love what you can do for Grados, though :)  Kudos! 

 

 

EDIT: Site looks great now!!
