They're not gonna get play time between my TF10 reshells and BA200s.

Mine finally shipped after being stuck in "preparing for shipment" status for three days. Luckily the place I ordered from is just one state away and the estimated delivery is just 1 day. Hopefully I'll have them tomorrow.

Got mine off the Amazon sale, and yeah, they're really damn good. Lydia has never sounded so good.

i love my gratitudes, but apparently the microphone doesn't work with my phone (samsung galaxy s3). it would've been perfect for me since i got them on sale on amazon (prime) for $57 shipped.

I was skeptical on the hype of these and after getting them It was fair to say I was dissapointed.  That was until I started to listen to some live acoustic Rodrigo and Gabriela.  WOW.... it didnt fair too well in other genres but man o man did it start to shine.

I'm in your crew guys and ladies.
They are simply perfect. I'm blown away of how good they are sounding!
Using them with Hifiman 601LE and this two friends loves each other:)
Their price in my country (Ukraine) is about 300$. For this money you can buy Sennheiser IE80 and they are not better. Heavy-speed-psycho metal (not my favourite styles but) IE80 will never play them with any cord and tape mods, Gratitude do it on a great level. Any other genre, they are still perfect.

Amping? Powerful player or an amp is a good decision, or better if you have it than if you don't. IPod will be a very good friend but not a lover:)
Deep and wide soundstage, good instrumental separation, deep and detailed bass, super sexy mids with amazing vocals, beautiful treble, lot of details, super melodical notes... i love them.
Hope my pair will live with me a lot of happy hours, i know that Monsters are not a high-quality IEM company, but wish them to become them (starting from my pair).
Using Sony Hybrid tips, super seal and isolation.

I'm glad you like them so much, the Gratitudes really are excellent headphones.  Hopefully you didn't pay the list price you quoted!

post #113 of 148

Yeah, thank you! I've paid a good price and amazingly good for this sound:)

It works fine with your s3. When you hear a call coming in press the middle button this answers the call and activates the mic

Bigger case fits perfectly Hifiman 601. 
One minus - when it is cold, cord becomes inflexible.

Yeah, the cables on the Gratitude aren't that great.  It's strange, however, because the cables on my Yao Solars (the precursor to the Gratitude) are excellent.

I was having some short experience with Nergy and their cable was also much softer and more flexible.

Dude I can see you have the diesels in your avatar. Those are actually on sale right now and i'm just asking how do they compare to the gratitudes?

 

Thanks!
