Thanks guys, I never listen to any Grado before, I just bought it last two months ago without auditioned it. I just read from forum and curios about Grado sound signature. After all, I really love the bright and the forwardness!

It will be your job to make sure no matter what, you don't give in and buy them! I wish somebody was my counselor because it would have stopped my hobby from getting this bad!

Chris, Im thinking to upgrade with Magnum driver SOON and send to headphonelounge. :)

Hi,

I tried the grado sr60i and sr80i today at a local store and was honestly, underwhelmed.

Sure, it guess its generally better than most consumer, highly advertised, headphones but compared to my iem (VSonic gr06), it sounded more muffled, albeit the grado bass were more boomy.

I suspect that this muffledness could be attributed to the comfies, so I'm just hoping to confirm my suspicion with you head-fi-ers.

Does the comfies significantly compromise the sound quality of the grados?

Would modding the grado (bowl pads, felt thing, hole drilling, etc.) significantly improve the audio quality of these cans?

Or am I just one of those who dislike the grado sound signature?

FYI: I listen to mostly rock/metal like slash/avenged sevenfold, & so was pretty surprised I wasn't blown away by the grados

Boomy bass and muffled sound? I have yet to hear a Grado that sounds like that....very odd. The Grados I have are very detailed and airy with a tight, crisp bass response.

The only time my SR60s have had "boomy bass/muffled sound" is when I tried to compensate for their natural lack of bass with an EQ. They didn't respond very well to that. I wonder if the store had them hooked up to a source EQ'd by the teenage intern?

 

In natural form they were the opposite; sharp and clear but fatiguing.

I can see how they would be fatiguing for anyone who doesn't like a brighter headphone. I tend to prefer anything from neutral to bright on the top end, so I don't experience much fatigue from them at all.

I agree, i don't know were he got boomy bass muffled sound from and if he likes rock music grados are the ones, but i have never heard the vsonics but what i have read about them they seem to come with decent headphone cables i.e copper for the sr06 and some sort of silver plating for the sr07..http://www.head-fi.org/t/612586/review-vsonic-gr06-wow

Agreed, my Grados are clear as can be. Hate to sound like a broken record, but I have not heard a headphone that exceeds the PS500 in overall sound quality.

I'm still rediscovering my HP1000 now with flats,and i just finish listening to Patricia Barber's live 'Companion' on SACD,and i never tought that they could go so low and hit so hard,so far,i like what i'm hearing.

I'm loving my PS500 on DNA Stratus... music never sound so alive... truly amazing.
