For the second time, going to forgo a Core i7 + 16gb Ram + Mobo upgrade for these babies. Gonna play diablo 3 with 15 fps boo, but at least the sound will be stellar!


What the... i5 2500k is more than enough. 8 gb too. Get a better video card man...

I love how everyone here doubles in computers and audio. Makes me feel welcome.

I think your current rig is respectable.  It'll handle Diablo III fine.  Go for the headphonessmile_phones.gif

Wise words! Heck even 4gb is enough :-d

I also think this is great news!  Really looking forward to first impressions on the PS500's.

 

Won't jump to any conclusions on sound signature.  Sure they look similar to the HF2's... but so does the PS1biggrin.gif

They look suspiciously like the HF2s I'm using at the moment!

 

Here's a pic of the PS500s from the Grado website

I look forward to hearing them at CanJam@RMAF in about a month. smile.gif Not that I'm going to buy one (I've since sworn off Grado headphones, especially John Grado models), but it'll be nice to hear them regardless.

*cough*HF-2*cough*

And no hate here. The HF-2 is a good headphone.

I do wonder if it will have blurry or F1 mods available. biggrin.gif

Though we should be thankful it isn't a HF-2 with a fluorescent headband and a doubled price.

I'm pretty interested in checking these out. I got into headphones too late for the HF2 and have been eyeing them used off and on for months. I currently have the RS1i and absolutely love them what makes me pretty happy is that it appears I can now get these anytime instead of having to possibly pounce on a pair of used HF2s if the price is right and hope I don't get screwed....

 

I will wait for the reviews but will probably pick up a pair of LCD2s first. I will also need to see Canadian pricing.

Even if it sounds like a HF-2 whats the problem with that? For all of us who weren't around or couldn't afford the HF-2 when it was released may now be getting a chance to own some of the greatness or possibly something greater.
 

 


Bravo!!!! You said exactly what was on my mind.

To all those who said that this new one looks like a HF2 rebadged. Then I say the SR225 is a just a rebadged version of the SR60. Or the RS1 is a rebadged elongated version of the RS2, or the GS1000 is a re-moulded and re-bowled of the RS1, HD650 is a re-colored HD600, T1 is a re-magnetised of the DT880...on and on....

Even if it's a "re-badged" HF2, it's still amazing. I personally loved the HF2 but can't stand the spelling mistake HEAD-F1....grrrr.....so if this one sounds the same or even better, then bye bye HF2.

One of the problems with your theory is the 225 has bowls versus comfies, and a bigger cable. The fact is the new Grado offering does look alot like a rebadged HF2. IOW it looks like a duck. Now whether it quacks like one is a different story.

I don`t care. I'm a Grado bitch and i want this.

post #44 of 1188

Oh God, I told myself that I wouldn't buy another pair of dynamics - that it was time to move onto the orthos or electrostats, like a big boy. Add to that the fact it will probably be a billionty-eleven pounds in the UK, and I know I shouldn't. But the Grado child in me is jumping up and down on his bed with excitement, screaming the words 'guitar solo' over and over again.

 

Stay strong Arleus, stay strong.
