Too big.  She's a Marine helicopter pilot (that is so hawt to write) and needs something portable and durable, but sounds great.  She deploys to interesting, exotic places for months at a time.  I SHOULD have asked for advice, but since I'm a very experienced audio-enthusiast and bassist, I figure my knowledge translates to these small, lightweight transducers that need mere milliwatts for power.  I am finding that to be incorrect...confused_face.gif

 

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.

I have a Lumix GF-1 so the only fully compatible macro is a Leica/Lumix 45mm F2.8, nice lens...

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.

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!
