I purchased my Grado 225's almost 10 years ago. Back then, everyone I knew were talking about grado vs sennheiser headsets and those that were made of money talked about Stax and thousand dollar or more amps. Now, I hardly see anyone talk about Grado's headsets for anything except the cheap entry level SR60's. What happened and When?
I have a nice set of SR225's with a DIY impedance matched amp.
What prompted this question was a desire to upgrade my setup came here, and not only were all the brands and models I knew discontinued, but the general consensus is "there's better elsewhere" and "poor build quality."
Here's my "I want a better/upgraded system" post on the "buying headphones" thread:
