What is the current top line of Grado? That is currently made, not discontinued.

RS1, RS2, PS500 or GS1000i?

Well the coronet top of the line (price wise) is the PS1000. They still produce all of the headphones you listed, plus the SR models.

You could easily have a bunch of 80i's ready to give to anyone who vaguely likes their musics lol you could give em 2 years in a row if they stack em biggrin.gif

Does this mean you are not a fan of the 80, or are you comparing them to the price of the more expensive Grados?

No clue. But I definitely didn't use that word in my post, and I read my post before submitting it, and it wasn't there. Very strange. Did you put it there Focker? Just kidding!

Well I have never owned or listened to the sr80, but I did own and listen to the sr125i and compared to the 225i, I much preferred the 225, I thought the entire spectrum was better, bass, mids and treble, not to mention the extra detail and transparency I heard. True story, I was listening to an album I have listened to dozens and dozens of times, at one point I clearly heard the drummer playing a cowbell, I had never ever heard that before with any headphone I owned. I went back and listened again with my Senn's and once I knew it was there I could hear it, but before it was so far down in the mix and overshadowed by the rest of the band I had never heard it. It was at that point I knew the 225i's were keepers for sure.

That's awesome...you can hear really deep into the recording with Grados, that's for sure. One of the things I love most about them. That happened to me once when I was listening to a track and I heard this weird noise...took me a while to figure it out, but then I realized that I was hearing the foot pedals on the piano being depressed. That's some serious detail!

SR225i's are my favs for mid-fi by a mile :) they're even in my display pic haha


I think anyone's who's been to real lives will prefer the Grados over darks because they put you on stage or first row, incomparably better for intensity <3

 

I also like the natural appeal and musicality of the wood- I also found Beyers to be much more musical and forgiving as well compared to really razor sharp ones like ultrasones or ur regular sennheisers

 

Question for people who've tried- do you think tubes or solid states add to the real experience more? With the example of being at a live rock concert as the measure

 

Thanks :)

Still trying to make up my mind on the tube/solid-state thing. I have both and to say the sound between them is different is an understatement, but my ss amp is quite old. I would like to listen to a new, somewhat high end ss amp like a Burson or Grace before I really make up my mind, but for now I prefer my tube amp over the ss amp I have.

Has anybody had (as in owned) or been able to listen to some Grado SR series phones on both a Valhalla and a Lyr, if so which sounded the best to you? I am kind of leaning toward the Lyr becuase I am told it works wonders removing the 'veil' from the Senn HD650's but I listen to my Grados more so it is more important to me that the Grados sound good than the Senns.

Do you prefer the 325is over the 225is or is your budget for the 225i and that's your mid-fi limit?

Or some other consideration?

They're both great at what they do, but the 325i's are the acquired taste and need burn in and source, so imo they're not ur average mid-fi plug in and go, though they have the far greater range and scalability (metal cups for crisp responsiveness) & intense grado sound & potential for low volume

Long story short I'm lazy so would go for the mellower 225i's that wow u right away tongue.gif
