so i have a question for the higher end grado users....if i want the same "overall sound" as the SR80i's but way more refined, which grado should i be demoing? i just adore the tone and close in feel for a lot of music, but the detail/clarity just isn't quite up to par (makes sense at the price point)
it's hard to find grados in canada to demo! should i be looking ps500, rs1/2, GS, MS, something else? would the 325's be far superior to the 80's?
I've never heard a Grado model higher in price than the SR325is, but I do own both the 80 and the 325, and I can tell you that the 325 is fuller sounding than the 80 in the bass and mid-range, and the vocals are beautiful. I also find that the 325's benefit very much from the right amp/dac. Also the 80 (IMO) is crystal clear, and has super detail, but yes the 325 has a more full bodied sound. but the 80 is an awesome headphone, regardless of it's price/ranking. I also owned the MS2i, which for me had too much of a mid bass for tastes, I felt that it didn't sound Grado enough for me, just my experience with all three of these headphones.
