Been listening to my new HE-400s the last couple days. Great headphones but my god do they suck when it comes to plain ol' rock n' roll. I will NEVER give up my Grados. In fact I'm ready to upgrade. Anyone have some spare RS1s they want to let go of cheap? biggrin.gif

I have a pair of Martin Custom FWJ #8 with Magnum V4 that like and also have the he-400 that I like. I have to disagree that the he-400 sucks with rock ! However, we all hear things differently.

at home listening to Daft Punk to pass the time till evening.

 

its kind of a coincidence that the song "High Fidelity" is playing while a pair of Grado SR80i's are perched on top...

Hey guys...

 

Got the Martin Custom Audio gimbals and rodblocks installed on the GS1ks. Pics don't really do them justice since they have similar styling to the stock ones, but they are very nice. These are clearly fabricated with tremendous precision, and the work is very impressive. I will order the new headband from Headphone Lounge here shortly, and at that point they'll be all spiffy and beautiful. Well, they already are that....but perhaps just a bit more comfortable. Well...they already are comfortable...screw it, you guys know what I mean. 

 

I know some people will ask if the Martin stuff is worth the money. It just depends on your preferences, of course, but if you're like me and you have no problem paying for quality, even if it's not something you NEED, then yeah, they're worth it. I love the mini-screw assembly on the rodblocks that make it very easy to switch out and secure the headband, as well as keep the rods more secure within the blocks. That was getting a bit annoying to me cause with the stock stuff the cups would twist around like a teacup ride at the carnival, which would make a mess of the cables. That problem has been solved. 

 

Anyway, here's a quick pic...I'll take a better one once the headband is swapped out with the new one.

One song, and with nice smile on her face she gave me back my phones and told me that "Yes darling, they are nice". That's it? About a month I read reviews and listened both SR225 and SR325 several times before buying SR225 and I'm very happy with these cans. Obviously, my wife is more happy of the fact I don't read reviews that much anymore than she is with sound of headphones :) Well, cans are for me anyway, so better this way.

Hey guys, I just recently acquired a Wood Magnum V4 build. I was hoping to get some input from other Magnum V4 owners about this issue:

 

Sibilance. Okay, so I own the SR60i with L-Cush, and I love 'em. I even sold my SR225i's a while back in favor of the SR60i because the SR60i has much more realistic and tamed sibilance than the SR225i had. So, my first listen to the Magnum V4's was a shock. The sibilance on these is really really sharp. A/Bing my SR60i and the Magnums, the SR60i are far more pleasing simply because of this one issue. However, the bass and mids of the Magnum V4's are clearly better than the SR60i, but it doesn't matter in the long run when the sibilance is so glaring that you can't enjoy the bass and mids.

Anyone else have this issue with their Magnum V4's? Maybe I just got a bad pair of drivers =/

Never noticed any glaring sibilance with mine.  What wood are they made from?

Looks nice, Focker!

Thanks! I have to admit I'm pretty happy with Martin's design. I'm not even sure I will upgrade the headband since the GS1ks come with the nicer leather one,and quite frankly the headphones look damn near perfect as is. Had a GREAT experience watching Expendables 2 with them last night....

Honduran Mahogany. The sibilance is pretty bad.
