The last of the Joe Grado drivers were gone by the early 90s...

IIRC the pink transitional drivers showed up around '92 - '93....

I wanted to say ~1993, so that's not far off. Not bad for half-awake at all. biggrin.gif

Thanks for clarification too.

The entry level Grados - the SR80s and 60s - are pretty amazing values for those who connect with the Grado signature. I have or had the GS1000s, PS500s, and SR325s, but I still use my 80s every day. Recently I've put my AudioEngine D1 dac back with my laptop, which is primarily how it's designed, and that combined with the SR80s give one heck of an enjoyable performance when I'm online. I often come across youtube videos that just sound stellar. It's pretty remarkable. If I had to, I could be very happy with just my 80s for many years. I get that much enjoyment from them.

I was looking for the Sr60 because it won  the “What Hi-Fi?” – “Best Headphones” award twice and also “Best Hi-Fi Headphones” award too and have received 5 star rating from them from as early as 2000! No regrets in getting them.It brings back that WOW feeling again.

Does anyone know if Grado will ever release another special HF series again in the future?

That's the pair I sent a buddy of mine who is sort of down on his luck but loves Jazz music. Both he and his brother have been using them and are already in love...two new fans of Grado for the price of one! haha

I've given the SR-60 as a gift too, and it always goes well if the recipient likes music ime.

I recently sold my sr80i's because I bought sr225's. I didn't enjoy the 225's nearly as much as I did the 80's. I'm regretting my choices now.

If it's any consolation, I like the SR60i, SR80i, and SR125i (all equipped with L-Cush) better than the SR225i and SR325is.

 

It's why I always suggest the SR60i, or the SR80i if you want a touch more bass. They are the safer choices in my opinion.

I let my parents have a quick audition with them and they loved it!  They looked so pleased with it I decided to give it to them.  They shortly bought 2 Sansa Clip Zips and I haven't seen them without it since smily_headphones1.gif

I definitely agree. Might have to buy myself another pair..... or maybe the ps500 eventually

I'm looking forward to getting a PS500 also...soon! **laughs evil-ish-ly while petting my mother-in-law's 15lb. cat*

That's a great combination, too. I really like the sound of my Clip+ with my Grados. For under $100, the SR-60 and Clip+ would be my pick as one of the most awesome combos for giving someone the gift of great sound smily_headphones1.gif

I went through and read some of the post on the "High End Audio" , most of them I realized are not satisfied with the gears that they already owned e.g HD800 They were comparing these with LCD 3 and LCD 2. Always trying to convince themselves what would be their next upgrade path. And the Question which is the best Headphones to own and different opinions from various owners. I have BEEN there and DONE that. Now I am more of learning to appreciate the MUSIC. No more fooled by these so called High End Audio. Anyway got my second SR60 also used.
