Please, we try not to encourage raw capitalism when it comes to our beloved Grados

The one who bought from the first seller is doing it right. biggrin.gif

IMO it's a nicer story to buy them for $350 and keep/enjoy them.

yep but the first one is working 80% (whatever it means) and the second is ok...so...how much did it cost back then? The stuff reminds me of the Clockwork Orange film for some reason I can't explain...

Modded my SR80i with the Headphone Lounge mahogany cups, easy mod, less than 15 minutes from start to mess clean up.  I did it for the wood look and the fact I can't leave anything alone, I mod computer, rifles, diesels, gas engines and now headphones... it may be a sickness.

 I was pleasantly surprised how it opened up the little 80s, the bass is warmer and the over all stage is much airyier.  My first impression is that it seems to have tamed the brightness a bit as the opening riff of Judas Priest Painkiller doesn't require me to be peeled off of the ceiling anymore.

They also look amazing, I am never a fan of the cheap plastic look.  I have been quite happy with the quality of the couple of orders I have received from the Headphone Lounge.

Now the question is do I transfer over the SR80 button or leave the screens naked?

I vote no button!

Also, how do they sound compared to your RS-2?

I pulled the button off the old cups and I agree, looks like crap.

 

I will do head to head testing tonight with the GS1000s and the RS2s.  At the very worst it will give me several hours of listening pleasure.

I'll let you know.

The HP-1 were selling for $595 originally.

So I got my adapter in the mail, and my 325is sound absolutely amazing.  I guess it didn't help the sound quality before that the connection was going laptop > receiver > headphones

Grado is inflicting unspeakable acts of pleasure upon my soul right now <3

but now....I feel like every guiter string grips my heart, every drum beat bangs at my soul, and the voice flys me to peaks I never knew I needed before

 

If they are doing this now....I tremble at the thought of them with woodies....or a DAC (I only have a crappy integrated sound card.)  What is a great DAC for 325is?  Maybe a few different price points?

 

Adter just two hours, the flats are really hurting my ears.  Waiting until Tuesday for my G-cushes is going to be torture.

Sold my SR60 a while ago. After listening to a few mid to high end big cans, kinda miss the Grados. Managed to secure an RS1i from b&s, hopefully will be back to Grado Club soon :)
