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.
iPod > E17 > RS1 this morning at work with Elder's Riddle of Steel Pt. 1 for me.
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.
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
my lyr just arrived, i'm at home, listening to ray charles and van morrison sing crazy love in 24/96, with my ps500's !!
sorry, couldn't help myself !
ARGH!!! lol. Only 90 more minutes I keep telling myself... only 89 more minutes... 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
