What's there to compare? I've tried the MS-Pros from Allesandro, I've tried 2 pair of wooden Grado SR-225i - which I adored and finally I tried some woody Magnums. I then placed my order for a pair of drivers (v.4) and then revised my order 2 days later before the shipment, for another pair of drives. Yes, the sound is THAT good. Not bright, not too warm, but just blissful. Very enjoyable to listen to. In fact, the sound to me was so good, I could easily turn into a couch potato listening to these babies.
Actually, I have 3 pair heading my way in one shipment. One pair is for another member in another location - which I'll ship off to him once the drivers arrive. Soon, the Magnums will be multiplying like rabbits. Now, with that being said, I'm not dissing on the sound of the SR-225i woodies. I think they are still at an excellent price point for what is being offered. I love my SR-225i Grados, but might have to sell my 2nd pair to fund some cups for the 2nd set of Magnum drivers.
