post #9691 of 33866

All I can add is that the SR325is is by far my favorite headphone.. period. Now that may change once I get the RS1i but for now that is it for me. Still somewhat fascinated by the PS500, but every time I see that FR curve on Headroom's website I start second guessing myself and everybody that says it is so good. Maybe someday.

^I don't think Grados were meant to be measured, but rather enjoyed!:smile:

As to the PS-500 with the L-Cush pads, I'm not as impressed.  But, where it really starts to shine is with the G-cush pads.

Indeed! When I was reading Grado graphs back then before I got my Grado, my thought was like EWWW I will stay away from this headphone! But who knows! When I first put them on the headphone, I didn't go back to my mellowish IEM XD

before the rs1i i would switch between the Land the G , depending on the music i'm listening too

now, having the rs1i, the g cush stays on the 500 more and more

Now, the question is.  Do I feel the flu coming on, so I could take a sick day from work?  Or, do I go to work and think about what is waiting at home?  Decisions.  Decisions.

delay gratification, work today, take off tomorrow !!

Go to work and have a good surprise waiting for you when you get home. Might as well make the money, the day is going to pass anyway!

That was my sense auditioning and comparing the 325 with my 225 and even the Hifiman 500. Yes, I could hear subtle differences btwn the 2 Grados A to B. But if you were just to put one set on your head at home, would I notice the difference? Would I even care? I liked the HE 500 as well. Totally different. But at the end of the day, when I put on ny 225i, I don't have three HP's to sit and play around with. I have one pair. I put them on and listen and enjoy.

Actually, I'm going for the "hybrid" option.  Yesterday, I beat myself and my forearms up pretty bad while replacing a steering shaft on my car.  Then, after that was done, I replaced my tranny filter, and added in new fluid.  Muscles that I never thought I had were killing me.  I'll head home in about an hour, so I'll just miss 1/2 day of work.  I'll set up the gear, then lay on the heating pad to alleviate some of the pain.

 

I think I'll use the Aune T1 just for the tube DAC feature.  I will pair it with my Little Dot I+ amp.  However, I will try the Aune T1 on its own, too, to see what kind of impressions I can gather on how it performs with the Grado headphones.  The Aune T1 is capable of putting out nearly 1 watt of power into 32 OHms, so there is more juice that the Grados desire.  But, a watt isn't usefuld if the sound is only so-so.  Time will tell.

Sounds like a plan!
I've heard dome say the t1 leaned to the bright side, I'm assuming that was when used as a DAC/amp, but being that it can be used as just a tube DAC does interest me, and the tube used is the 6922 right? That would make tube rolling very easy as the lyr uses that tube, I have 6 ,7 pairs of those already

I got a great deal on a barely used MS2i in the FS forum. They should be here mid-week. I'm looking forward to seeing how they compare to the MS1i and the 225i.

If you liked those two, you will LOVE the ms2i, I know I did, and still do, I actually think it is the sweet spot at least in the line from 60 to rs1/ps500

I enjoy them both very much. Spending some time on this site has led me to great purchase decisions for my taste. But it does seem that I can just follow your path and be pretty much on point.
