The person i bought them from was interested in getting the PS500, and we had a nice talk about Grado's.

I can't help but wonder why he never used them and then "gave" them away for such a low price though.

You've just paid its right price, not more, not less. Have a look on amazon fr or uk if you want to check wink.gif

The dutch pricelist for Grado is online in it's entirety, and i can't buy from amazon...
Very happy with it, drivers seem to be the same as the RS-2?

325i with taped bowls and LDMKIII are really hitting the spot right now. Getting some beautiful big bass and soundstage. I think swapping the driver tubes in the amp to some Mullard ef92s really helped. Good synergy between amp and headphones....very fun.

Very surprised that you never tried them on the 80's though, I would have thought you would have had them on from the beginning, but now, knowing that you wear glasses, and being that the (S) cushion is smaller and softer than the (L) cushion, I can understand why you would use them. You may be very surprised with how the 80's sound with the (L) cushions, you may have a whole new prospective of the 80's, and I know you speak highly about the 80's even though you have headphones costing 10+ more times the amount. I think you will be very impressed.

I totally forgot to compare my flats with the L cush on my SR80i, but i just took them out and put them on my desk so that i remember to do it tomorrow, sorry joseph.

 

And you're right joseph, i do speak highly of the SR80i, in fact, in a certain way, i'm more impressed by my SR80i than i am with my PS1000, simply because it's one thing to built an expensive pair of headphones that sounds amazing, (to me at least), but it must be much more challenging to built an inexpensive pair of headphones that sounds very good. Also, i'm pretty sure that the percentage of people that like the SR80i is much higher than that of the PS1000, especially when you consider the quantity of SR80i that has been sold over the years.

 Anyway I may be back, just need a break from the snobbery.

 

 

I hope you read this, because i think i know wich thread finally got the best of you,  For some reason, people seem to have a love, hate relationship when it comes to Grados.

 

The way i see it is that it's ok not to like Grados, but people should at least show some respect to those who do like them. Some comments are VERY harsh, and pretty much say that if you like them, you must be stupid, or at least that they're must be something wrong with your hearing.

 

We should never forget, that even though we all have different sound systems, different tastes in sound and music, and of course, different hearing acuity, in the end, we all have something in common, wich is the love of music reproduced through headphones.

I didn't buy these from an official seller, as they don't sell these in the netherlands(the red PP)
post #7823 of 17140

Red PP's nice!! :D they're bling everywhere haha

 

As for the Flat response and Balanced vs Dynamic stuff lets not forget they're using gadgets to test music not a human :P it's pretty lame to make your drivers more rigid and precise at the expense of limiting them and reaching new heights of euphoria >=] moar powerz!

amen to this !

and i'd add that this is a hobby, something that is supposed to bring us pleasure and take us away from the stress of daily life.

i catch myself occasionally taking ,audio, equipment , and myself too seriously, when i do that, i'm not having fun, and i'm NOT listening

to the music, i'm listening to the equipment
