post #7651 of 27801

See my prev post. It depends on the source. If you have a good amp/dac then the 325s are better at taking advantage of it. The 225s can get close with different mods (flats or tape mod) but they will never have the depth and detail of the 325s.

 

Yeah-I think that's about right. I'm using the tap mods and the 325 had more depth and detail-question of degrees and price point really.

For me, it was close between the 225's and the 325's.  Yes, the 325's seemed more resolving, but not enough to justify the difference in price at the time.  I also had the impression that the 325's were more forward in the treble region, which is the last thing I want.  I do want to try some of the other Grado's after I graduate, when I get a life back!

I only ever buy used so the price difference is much easier to swallow. But yes the difference, like most of the stuff on head-fi, is splitting hairs. But thats the whole point smily_headphones1.gif

Obligatory picture proof to those calling my gender in to question.

When you throw around terms like "zero difference" and "no perceivable difference" you may be misunderstood.

Because you didn't elaborate at all it seemed provocative especially for a Grado Fans Club.

I am NOT saying it was right to label anyone a troll, just answering your question of why it happened to you in that situation.

It's great that folk jump to your defense to express your valid opinion!

Yeah and this is the problem of emails and posts in general-without the social context you get in a conversation or person to person interface-you loose a lot of the nuances of communication and people get their schiit bent out of shape....so speak.

 

What I'm about to write, is not about CrystalT....I'm just going to make a hypothetical point or two.

 

Can't you think of times someone said things that sounded absurd, but they were socially awkward or had difficulties with interpersonal relationships and you just let it go. I know I have.

 

Someone like CrystalT puts out an email and some people get a little, er, shall we say-"Type A". None of us know what each other looks or sounds like.

 

Again, I'm not talking about CyrstalT as I don't know her. For all anyone knows, she may be a 60 year old male truck driver, however I kind of doubt that.

 

But, I do have a teenage daughter. And, I also work with young adults. If I, as a middle aged music lover who still listens to heavy rock music have a conversation with my one of my teen age daughter's friends, and she's kind of going through a late adolescent punkish/fight the power thing, I'm going to let her talk cause she's a kid. I may think to myself (I was listening to music 25 years before she was born, I lived through music history that she has only heard about, this kid doesn't know what she's talking about-again-I'm not talking about CrystalT), but I take the context into account and I let her have her views and soft peddle it.

 

I think we've all head conversations about music, gear, etc. with someone who is much younger or from a different culture, less experience or whatever, and hopefully you have a respectful conversation.

 

I see a lot of kids who just listen to extreme metal for instance, I have to force myself to not give them a lecture about going back and listening to early Black Sabbath, The Ramones and Led Zeppelin....but that's a different axe to grind normal_smile%20.gif

 

On Head-Fi...it's all bout-What??? Sacrilege. How can you say That!

 

So, people get a little worked up.

 

Plus, if we all had to face each other person to person, we wouldn't have the nerve to spew much of what is stated on some of these posts.


This was fun to read. I listen to extreme metal, but I also grew up with, appreciate, and frequently listen to the artists that wrote the books. Particularly maiden, sabbath, The Ramones, Scorpions, Kansas, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and of course I also listen to a lot of power metal/death metal/thrash/punk/hardcore, particularly stuff from the late 80s and 90s.

There are some extreme metal bands out there with as much intricacy as the old greats. Try not to knock em. =p

It looked very fishy and i just could not, not comment on that. But why would you post pictures to prove your gender anyway...

I don't really like it when people call it in to question.

PS500
RS-1 (with the buttons, semi-vintage i think????)

Not sure if i will keep all 5 yet. I'm kind of hoping (and kind of not) the RS1 can replace all the SR series, and I am hoping the PS500 gives me everything the RS1 can't while maintaining the Grado sauce.

 

Smart move, i think that the RS1 are a good complement to the PS500, that's like having your cake AND a glass of milk, and if you're satified with this combo, you can even sell you're SRs and get some money back, win, win.

Hi,
can you help me?
I would like to buy a amp for my Grado Rs1i.
My choice is between the Mad Ear+ HD and the Graham Slee Solo Ultra Linear Diamond Edition.
I saw that in the forum it's possible to find them used.

http://www.head-fi.org/t/667667/graham-slee-solo-ultra-linear-diamond-edition#post_9525092

can you suggest me which is the best amp for my Rsi1 and at the same time the best deal?

Thank you

That's what i am hoping for. If it all works out i will end up with an RS1, PS500 and ATH-WS99 for less than $1000. Plus I'll make back a bit more selling all the SRs.

 I actually listen to a fair amount of extremity, but I always try to remember where it came from. I grew up on my parents reel to reel recordings of classic rock and folk music. My childhood was filled with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Who, the Doors, Peter Paul and Mary, Simon and Garfunkel, The Mamas and Papas, etc. I came up in the 80's....glad to hear Maiden and the Ramones still get respect.

post #7665 of 27801

My childhood was Maiden, Scorpions, Dio, Queensryche, AC/DC, Sabbath, Ozzy, Quiet Riot, etc, but as I got older and explored my music tastes, I moved on to mostly progressive and power metal, plus lots of extreme stuffs.

 

Also, I love Baroque.
