You mean my pair?  They show up pink enough in the pics right?  In person, the pink is a bit more prominent.  I didn't use the flash, but natural light for the pictures, so I tried to depict them as close to real colors as possible.

No, no, sorry, I mean the ones you linked to on fleeBay! :)

In the listing wje linked to, the seller has confirmed they have white mesh. Someone asked him the same question!

Thanks for the update.  There will be plenty of others that could show up as time moves along, too.  Just be patient.  I'm doing plenty of listening the the pink Grads and the RS1i to capture differences.  The pink SR-60 isn't an RS1i killer by any means.  Though, some notes regarding the signature and performance do have to be addressed and listed out for a better explanation.  While I like my RS1i, it doesn't mean that the next person wouldn't prefer the pink SR-60.  Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks.

 

I had the SR-60 Grados at work yesterday.  Late in the afternoon, I was driving them straight out of my iPod Classic as the Fiio Monte Blanc was home charging.  About an hour and a half of Amy Winehouse allowed me to capture some impressions of the tones, female vocals, etc.  What I heard, didn't have me wanting to yank the Grados off.  I'm not sure how my experience would have been with an un-modded and newer SR-60i, though.  Also, for additional testing, I'd like to pit the SR-60 pinks against the Allesandro MS1i headphones and see how something several years old would compare to the 2 year old stock MS1i headphones.

I have the L cushions and I don't like them at all because I find them w way too uncomfortable. I am content with the stock cushions but that could change with wood cups.

Hey guys, my friend is looking for a pair if headphones for work. He really liked the sound of my SR80 but they leak too much sound. Any recomendations for a closed/semi-closed can with a similar sound? The K550 is all I can think of but it's too big and bulky for him.

Not going to lie but Grado SR80/60 are very hard to beat! Neither can I think of any headphone of similar sound signature other than the K550 and possibly DT880 but it needs an amp, a tube amp if possible to sound best smily_headphones1.gif

Many of us have been there. However, have you spread open the headband a bit so it doesn't feel like your head is in a vise when you wear them?

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Will look into the RS1's as a potential upgrade to my 325is!

SR60i is a better starter headphone. Then a ZO2.3 woofer amp so that he get the freedom of EQ-ing the bass xD

It's not the headband but the cushions themselves. The foam is too stiff and rough,at least on the replacement pads that I bought.
