HELLO ALL!!!!

JUST GOT MY GRADOS!!!! Awesome headphones great imaging, bass wasnt as bad as I thought and yep, they are completely open and the clamping force is a bit strong but pretty comfortable! Listening to Supermercy -Muse right now!

wow, changing tubes to the erricson 408a really improved the mid bass on the ps500 , lost a little sparkle up top mabybe

buy but very tight, snappy bass, listening to some talking heads this a. m.

Thanks! Awesome pair of headphone! Surprisingly really tight bass and it's actually pretty good with electronic but hey, I find my XBA-4 to do better in that xD

Let's give it more burn in biggrin.gif

Yep, Grado bass is nice and clean, but not ample. When I want to fire up ATB, Deadmau5, Massive Attack, or soemthing along those lines I'll usually switch over to my T1s.

Clamping force cn be easily changed by slowly flexing the headband "out" or "in" as required. Loosening a bit may reduce bass a tad though.

PS500's just arrived!!!  They are just laying beside me in the box until I get off work at 5.  :(  My co-worker thought I was crazy buying a $600 dollar headphone and she just bought a $1760 Louis Vuitton pocket book.  lol

they really are capable of amazing things

they can be picky though, of source material, and associated equipment, just my impression thus far

how do you find the Lyr with the Grados? 6W @ 32ohms seems a bit crazy. Can you actually get enough control over the volume? Also I am looking for tube amp reccomendations (not hybrid) that work well with low impedance headphones. Can anyone make reccomendations? the only one that I am aware of is the Woo WA6.

"Until you’ve heard a headphone amp that’ll do 40V p-p into 32 ohms, you haven’t lived." !!! (from the schiit website)

seriously, i've just listened for about 45 minutes , there is plenty of control over the volume, seems normal , what's not normal, or at least i was unprepared

control of the bass, DYNAMIC, PRAT, gobs of it, now its a hybrid, it blows the LD1+ away, and its killer, wanna buy a little dot ?? lol

serious, i do need to sell some ( i now have 4 amps, 2 dacs), i'm relatively sure it WONT be the lyr
