Questions about Grado HP Signature Headphones - Page 2  

post #16 of 91
KR................you are definitely deserving of the title:
"Official Grado Historian".

Thanks for that information.........my cables are the standard ones, but I still haven't heard a Grado headphone that sounds better (I know I haven't heard the HP-2s ..............but I will)

Firsts,
*So the HP-2 w/ this newer cable (which, btw is not the same thing as the cables that grado uses now) sound better than the HP-1's.*
How do you know? Did you try it?

*As far as I know, I don't think that any HP-1's were made with this cable (what does your cable say?).*

Well, as far as I know, HP-1's were made with this cable. I have the upgraded one and have actually heard the old cable as well.

It's the cable that makes the difference, not the model of headphone. So a HP-1 with upgraded cable will sound better than an HP-2 with the old cable. A HP-2 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-2 w/ the old cable. A HP-2 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-1 w/ the old cable. A HP-1 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-1 w/ the old cable.

So by reading that, you it should tell you that I wasn't 100% sure if any HP-1's were made with this cable or not.

How long ago was it that you heard the old cable?

As far as this cable being different than the cable that Grado uses now, I remember reading this somewhere on-line. Of course, John Grado says that his cable (for the top models) are even better, so you know.

One of the disscussions that we had at Headwize was about this was about one person who thought about changing the cable on his HP-1000's with the current high end Grado cable and if this would change the HP sound to the point where it would sound too different than the older upgraded cable. At the end, I belive that everyone decided that they would be better off staying with the default cable.

I bid on the HP1's impulsively on ebay. No chance in hell that I'll get them (and if I did I would have a hard time getting hte money, but....

The seller would be happy to find there are many head-fi/headwizer here. The price would be beaten up for sure.

Hi, Joe/Vka, hwo much did you pay for your HP-1s? with any accessories included?
post #22 of 91
Joseph, I paid $570 shipped. They are in absolutely perfect condition with original box and paperwork. A bit high, I know, but what the hell, it's only money, ..............................and they are HP-1s!
post #23 of 91
Oooh...I could use a pair of HP1s to go along with my HP2s. Let the bidding begin.
post #24 of 91
Oooh, those HP-1's will be mine. Oh yes, they will. I want them so badly. They will make me poor again, but you know the saying: "You only live once."

Hi, Joe, what does the original box look like? wooden box or the crappy clipboard box?

Thanx
post #28 of 91
The box is cardboard with blue foam inside molded to the shape of the cans. The box is bigger than the current boxes, and it looks different, more classic.
post #29 of 91
Dammit, these cans are going to put me in the poor house.

Joseph, I am willing to go so high on these it's not funny. I just really want these. I mean I REALLY want these. Sorry.
