Those will be my next purchase. Just listened to Steven Wilsons new album on my MS-2s and was blown away. Guess I like the Grado/Alessandro sound.

Me too...no mistaking the sound signature and seems to be a perfect match for guitars of any kind.

Hey guys. seem to be reading a lot of rock listeners using Grados. What about Grados for jazz? any experience?

 

Cheers

For me, their greatest quality is truth of timbre. The sound of a cymbal, the woody sound of a sax, the brassy attack of a horn, hand on drum skin, the voice. Everything clearly heard (seen?) separately, yet coherent as a group. Also a very consistent "house sound" through the whole line. Yes, they are great for jazz.

I dig'em. But "jazz" is pretty broad. redface.gif

The 325is do beautifully well with jazz IMO.  Fantastic with either something like Mingus ("Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" is really good) - and even better with something more modern like Portico Quartet or female vocal jazz (Krall / Norah Jones).

I don't know Miles well, but what I do know - the RS-1 do very nicely with. smily_headphones1.gif

Had both, non-i variants; would get the 225 if you have the money. If not, 60 with the bowls will get you almost all the way there. Overall less staging than the RS, and less refinement/etc, but still very good headphones, and the house sound lends itself to the music you're listening to. smily_headphones1.gif

While I'm not a major fan, I've found the 325is to be quite good for most jazz. But with some live, night-club jazz (e.g., Carmen McRae & Dave Brubeck), the "soundstage" feels constricted; the HD-650 provided a much more natural "feel".
