Hello Jay,

 

The SR80 with the 1/4 inch jack is the older vintage. The 1/8 jack is the newer "i" version, which has more metal in the cable (four conductors instead of 3). The cups are now the same ones the Allessandro MS-1 uses. So the SR80i is more like the MS-1.

LOL...not Jay, fleasbaby :).

 

Thanks. That's interesting. I thought that some non-"i" were made later with the smaller jack...was wondering if a larger jack indicated the chance iof getting a pair of "pink" drivers actually. Oh well. No way to find out except with cash then :)....

They're my fav out of the $1000's range even though they're probably the most skewed XD (imo)

 

Yes, but they're skewed in a good way wink.gif

First post, but have been doing Hi-Fi for years...Just getting into the headphone thing just now and wanted say how much I really enjoy the Grado SR60i headphones...they are simple and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to and wear.

Welcome! SR60i is awesome - if you feel you'd like a touch more clarity, focus, and bass definition, pick up the easily switchable L-Cush pads for $20 on Amazon. Improves the sound substantially imo.

 

This is just the beginning for you. Sorry for your wallet!

welcome aboard !! i was  a hi fi'er myself a few years ago, now, a computer is my main source, only source really, got a pair of audioengine speakers, that was ear opening, then a dac, that was ear opening, then after so many years of reading about sr60, 60i,

i finally bit, loved them so much, i returned them, got the sr225i's, then the ms1's, another dac, then a separate amp,

yep, i got the fever !  simple, and enjoyable , thats a combination thats hard to beat !

post #7046 of 14011

listening to my first mod, well except for switching pads back and forth  between the 225's and ms1's.,

i got the electrical out, and taped the l-cushions,

on the 225, i didn't like a whole lot, bass was too boomy

on the ms1's , holy crap !! this is freaking awesome,

it sounds like the ms1's grew up a little

its bass is closer to the 225's, while keeping the warmer overall sound

gonna do some fiddling !
 

edit:

i may have spoken too soon as to the tape mod on the 225 being too boomy,

i believe it was the track i was listening to before i switched them to the ms1's

now gonna quarter mod the flats !

Try the mod with thin scotch tape, no electric tape. 

The electric tape is overkill and overemphasizes the bass.

Try the mod with 1/2" scotch tape.
