that's one hell of a cable. there's enough material there to make some comfy Christmas socks.

 

and congrats on the PS500. It's my favorite grado model available out there

This isn't meant as an insult, but that cable looks like a huge shoelace. tongue.gif Very nice cans!

Probably because it is a shoelace  wink_face.gif. Many DYier use it for cable sleeve. All available on FleeBay

That's actually incredibly clever! Never thought to do that...

Welcome to the club! My first Grado was the PS500 - I have never regretted buying them. Just this morning I put them on to listen to just a couple of tracks and three Mark Knopfler albums later realized I was burning too much daylight! Amazing headphone...wink.gif

 A nice little review of the new Cary Audio division 'Nighthawk' - containing excerpts relating to the PS1000 by 'Enjoy The Music'

 Dang, these cans remain a mystical journey ~ so crap one minute (read: your recording is under 20 years old)

 and yet amazing the next!

Thank you for the correction, the Shures are the SE215's not the 535's and I got them at Sweetwater.com for $99. The Grado (Alessandro MS-1) 80i I purchased from Alessandro.com for the same amount $99, and the AKG's from Amazon.com on closeout (discontinued model) for around $89, but these by far are the best of the three due to the size of the drivers and the frequency range, I did purchase a custom cable for the AKG's but have not heard any noticeable difference in sound quality between the stock and custom. I do have to admit it is difficult to decide which pair to put on at any given moment, at home I listen to the AKG's and at work I use either the Grado's or the Shures, it just depends on the environment and what is going on at that time. I do own a pair of  Sennheiser RS120's that I use for late night tv watching and I can never seem to get the frequency to tun in just right, and when the batteries start going (they are on the charging stand all the time) the sound is terrible. I have tried these for music and they are the worst I have every had. Maybe other Senn.'s are better (wired) but I don't plan to purchase a new set of can for some time, I plan to upgrade the speakers in my home Theater from Polk Audio TSi200's and CS20 to new Definitive towers:

BP-8040ST System

Thanks again for the correction. Happy listening. dt880smile.png

Good luck chasing down that home theater thingy.

Well after being away from my Grado SR-80s for way too long (broken and lost) I just bought some SR-125s off a Head-Fi'er here. I'm so excited. How I've missed that Grado sound. Just need to go pick up a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter from the store.

I had gone a couple of months without using my 80s until a few weeks ago....even though I have a couple headphones that are significantly better, I had forgotten just how good the 80s sound.
