There's also the Oly 60 2.8 macro.

Have you had your HP1s modified by Joe, or are they stock?

being a micro 4/3s lens it is fully compatible by whatever definition you may choose to use. 

 

by the way, those are a nice pair of HP1000s, most pairs I've seen have had most of the lettering missing.

Anyway, the price was right and she's put up with a lot of whining from me as a 50-year-old college student taking waaay too many classes.  I just want nice portables for her, and thought sharing the wonder of Grado would be a good place to start.

Senn PX100-II?

Is was a great thought to share the sound of the Grados, but no they are really not for portable use, they are for home, but at least she has some nice sounding headphones.

Sorry to correct you but the auto focus and OIS don't work with Oly lenses, hence NOT "fully" compatible...

yes, my HP1000 are nice!

Not sure if people have seen this, might make a good project.

Those do look nice. Might have to try them out.  I use the iGrado at work and like the behind the head feel.  I also like the openness so I can hear when someone walks up behind me.  I am a CAD jockey and can get too focused sometimes on the screen.

I should probably post this on the main forum so all the Grado haters can yell and scream about it.

Just today I did an impromptu test. My son was over to take me to the doctors so I got him and my wife in the same room. I had my system setup and running, so I had both of them listen to two headphones. First the SR325is, and then my Sennheiser HD600's. Same source, same amp, same everything. I told them to listen as long as they wanted and once they had decided which phone sounded the best to them, to let the other person try. They could go back and forth as much as they wanted before deciding. I think you can see where this is going...they both said they liked the Grado's better than the HD600's. I can hear everyone gasping already!!

 Not in the least bit a scientific test, but it was fun for me just to see what happened.

i'd been seriously considering the 598, or 600 , just as a change of pace, a different flavor, to the 225's i have, then i happened upon the ms2, and for now at least, the wanting to have one of those sennheisers has dropped a bit in priority.

I'm very tempted to buy these, being that I have an SR80i cable and headband.

I'm not 100% sure those are pink drivers. The pink in "pink drivers" is actually in the cheese cloth covers, not the drivers.

These are "pink drivers"

 

 

Also, if you send them to Grado for they're very reasonable fixed cost repair,, they may well swap out the drivers (inner housing)  anyway
