I'm considering on purchasing some Grados because all of the hype online. I've spent a few days researching many sites and I still keep finding mixed opinions. Does the Grado SR80i or SR225i have some noticeable bass response if powered to a headphone amp or are they too bright for most people? Which do you consider a better value?
I currently own the B&W P5s and they provide enough bass for my preference. The P5s can be run w/out a headphone amp, connected to an iPhone 4S. I thought Beats felt like subwoofers attached to my ears with no clarity; I hated them! LOL!
