It's definitely not normal, let Rhydon have a look at it.

 

The Magnum v4 drivers are well behaved, they should be smoother (/less sibilant) than most Grado's.

 

I don't think it would be caused by the Turbulent Labs cups. The two companies have a collaboration going on and they are aware of each other's product which should go pretty well together.

Could be upgrade frenzy time. MidWest Pro Sound and Lighting has 20% off everything (promo code TWENTYOFF), and according to someone in the head-fi deals thread, it works on Grados.

You are right. I didn't look at the date. But they still have it listed on their front page in the rotating ads.

Hi fellow Grado Addicts.

Has anyone used the LD MK IV with any Grado's? (or any easier to drive 'phones in general)

 

i find my 225's so addictive for metal/rock... i like them for a lot of EDM as well.

stuff like cosmic gate... goes really well :)

I think Focker uses an LD with his Grados.

I can agree with the EDM bit on Grados irregardless though - I tend to listen to a lot of that on the RS-1, and enjoyed it on the 225 when I had them.

Would balancing the RS1s have any real benefit to them?  I'm thinking about recabling mine, wondering if balancing is a worthwhile option.

I'm guessing not, based on what I remember of the topic from years ago. They don't need more voltage.

Yeah I remember people talking about it ways back.  Thanks.

First post!

Got my first pair of Grados this past weekend! SR125i's, they are the most amazing headphones I have ever used. I then stumbled onto this amazing place, it's been a great week so far!

Welcome to Head-Fi, glad to see you're enjoying your 125s, Grados tend to be very addictive if you like their sound signature.

 

Happy listening

Great choice! You'll get many, many hours of enjoyment out of those. Glad to have you in our thread!

I'm going to try and find some ELO CDs over my winter break, I'm tired of having to youtube them. Any suggestions besides Out of the Blue, Eldorado, and their first album?

post #5729 of 18123

You will for certain also need to get "New World Record" and Face the Music" maybe also get "On The Third Day " with the three you already mentioned. Forget about anything released after "Out of the Blue".. It's all going downhill from there :-)

Congrats! And in advance, sorry for your wallet smily_headphones1.gif

Hope you have a good amp to power those! Grados become something else after powering them with an Amp smily_headphones1.gif I enjoy my Grado RS1i with The Continental V2 atm smily_headphones1.gif

Also, I'm looking for a PS1000, anyone know a Grado dealer in the LA area? XD
