Went up the road today, saw 3 x HD201 owners and a pair of HD202 owners

 

No Beats as yet for the day biggrin.gif

Is it just me, or do we revisit the same Grado-bashing thread under a different guise roughly once a month ? Its pretty simple - if you don't like 'em, dont buy 'em. If I can leave the Senn guys in peace, surely the anti-Grado brigade can leave the rest of us alone to enjoy our cans ?

We like to bash everything. It's not limited to Grado. I might stop if the really good looking wood cups come back.

Oh the wood of my GS1000i is freaking gorgeous.....I can stare at it all day. Dark red, but not too dark...with stain pattern oh so nice. Easily the best of all the wood Grados I've seen. I'll be back with a pic later.

Nice wood - on the RS1 and RS2 that is. The GS1000s need a good case. If Audeze can throw one in, so can Grado.

At that price point there is a need for a real case - to transport and store the headphones safely. It's not about a fancy case, it's about making sure you have a way to carry and store thousand dollar headphones.

Grado doesn't think headphones are as important as the sound. confused.gif

You read some fascinating 'crap' on Head-Fi at times, that goes a long way on shedding light

on the continual 'sonic innovation per dollar' argument.

 

Couple of people in the new LCD-3 thread arguing that for them, ergonomics is worth at least

half the cost of any new headphone, being as important if not more so, than actual sonic

performance.

 

Who are these people?!? confused_face_2.gif

I could be one of them. If a headphone is too uncomfortable to have on for at least 4 hours...

It kind of is important. If a headphone is so uncomfortable that you can't enjoy listening to it for a longer period of time that should be a deal breaker.

I'll admit that wearing my 325i for 4 hours straight leaves my ears battered and bruised

but it's a rarity for me ~ I usually have a cup of tea or coffee to reflect in between material.

 

Guess it's different for the those among us who use 'phones to earn a living, sometimes

there are no breaks when that final recording has to be delivered on time.

Of course use what works for your workflow, but this makes less sense to me than the enthusiast that will put up with some discomfort for sound.

 

I record full orchestra and chamber groups.  I use headphones for editing, spot noise reduction and the like.  (I master on big, full-range speakers.)  I can't imagine trying to do my best work when my head/ears hurt from using my chosen equipment - especially when there are so many good options.

That's why you need to get a pair of GS1000i asap  biggrin.gif

That's like saying fresh vegetables and fruit have not found the answer to McDonalds and Dairy Queen.
