+1 for you and +1 for the musician on getting actual headphones. I have seen many musicians use Apple Ear buds or insufficient ones.

Let's just hope he or she is not using them for monitoring. Who knows what a Grado house sound could do to music production...

I've never heard a pair of Grado's sadly :( But if they are like my Shure's with the hot vocals, cold signature, and little emphasis on surrounding music then wow, the vocals of the middle school girl singing badly will burn the audiences ears!!!!

 

I find my Shure's to be for vocals and guitars or string instruments. The background music and most stuff surrounding it just doesn't appear much...and that burns at times. I can't imagine how that would feel >_<

This is an awesome story!  I'd frame it :-)

heck yeah!   I'd frame that up too. Congratulations!  Or you could make a temperature and atmospherically contolled plexi enclosure that preserves it on display for all time. Gotta have edge-lit leds for ambiance too.

If someone used Grados to mix, I would imagine that on a more neutral model the mixes would sound very dark and overly bassy. :)

OP, awesome story. That's pretty cool, congrats.

You know, its funny you say that. Awhile back I was recording something, and I used the HD-280 to track and mix. For some reason I 'forgot' the HD-280 signature, and mixed it to sound good on them. Well.....the result was that the mix ended up very muddy on anything else. I attribute it to the HD-280's sterile signature, and I added more bass and low mids and things like that to compensate. Lol. Silly me. I learned my lesson from that experience.

Yeah, I know the sound of my 7506s like the back of my hand, so to speak. Even if it does have its own flavor, as long as you know how to adjust for it, you'll be fine. Or at least consistent. :)

Exactly. This was years ago, and they were the only two cans I had. I alternated between them and Grado SR-60s, two totally different signatures. Now I'm much more familiar with each of my headphones sound.
