depends who he got it from. It might be 325 drivers transplanted in there, but then again, if the seller didn't mention this very important detail, well then......

325 drivers transplanted in a black plastic body does not make a black 325.

Best if the buttons are the only thing changed on those cans...

been listening to the 60i's for a little less than an hour,

so not broken in at all,

they sound WAY better than my sennheiser hd 202's.

i also tried the beyerdynamic dtx910, i returned them the next day,

i knew right off i didn't like their sound.

the 60's are much closer to the sound i'm looking for,

maybe would like a little warmer presentation.

i'll see how they burn in .

Nice! If you want warmer, perhaps the Alessandro lineup is more to your liking. The MS1i I got a chance to compare with was like a slightly darker SR60i - warmer bass, slightly less forward highs, and a soundstage that actually was quite a bit more spacious.

I think he said he only paid $150 for them - so that's honestly pretty fair even if they're "just" 225s. redface.gif

I would prefer to get a brand new sr80i with L-cush than paying 150 US$ for something else,  just saying, although I've never heard the sr225.

You certainly can't go wrong with the SR80i, they're ridiculously good for the money. I'm use mine with the comfies, because when i'm at the computer, i wear my glasses and the comfies are, well, more comfortable. I'm listening to them as i write this, off my old Pioneer reel to reel tape and Marantz reciever, and they sound great.

i've decided i'd definitely  like to move up from the sr60i's, as i said before, i'm looking for maybe a little more warmth.

the allesandro ms1's were suggested, and i'm really interested in them, but what about the sr80i's ??

they are both the same price, how do the two compare to each other ?? anyone have experience with these two ??

thanks !

The SR80i sounds very similar to the SR60i with just slightly more bass presence and slightly more aggressive highs. It's not a difference that makes them sound more warm, rather just more aggressive and dynamic.

 

The MS1i has even more bass presence than the SR80i, but with a bit darker mids and highs than both SR60i / SR80i.

 

Without going to the RS1i or PS500, your best bet is probably the MS1i or a different brand of headphones altogether, if you want warmth.

thanks,

the only other headphone i've really had is the sennheiser hd 203's, which are ok.

then i heard the grado's and really like their overall presentation much, much  better.

I'd been reading about them since 94, 95, in hi fi mags like stereophile and the like.

thats when i a had "high end"(to me) two channel system, but never cared for headphone listening.

well, times have changed, the big system is gone, just a computer, a audioengine d1, and a2's,

and i've discovered how  good headphones, and headphone listening can sound for less money.

i've got a feeling this is just the beginning

Hey guys,

 

Just bought my first pair of headphones, and decided on the PS500s after testing lots of cans that were in the $500-1500 range. I felt these ones were the best for me. I have one question, would the Fiio E7K or the E17 be suitable to use as an amp for these headphones? Any other portable amps that would be better than those for sound? 

 

Thanks!!! Looking forward to your responses.

JDS Cmoy is a good start. John will even optimize it for low impedance like Grados or IEMs, if you ask.

Congratulations on your PS500 and sorry for your wallet.
