I understand what you mean, that's the reason i like Grados so much, i still prefer the ''Grado sound'' to that of the HE400, but in my opinion, they offer one the best price vs performance ratio out there.

Had both pads and run them balanced with ALO Chain Mail(+Norse adapter as the ALO is for my LCD2)on a Phoenix and SE on a WA6.

The LCD2 was just better for my taste.

As i've said before, i consider myself a Grado fan, not a fanboy, the difference being that i have no problem giving other brands credit  when it's due. I find that the HE400, HE500, LCR2, LCR3, HD800, are all great headphones, but in the end we have to make a choice, at least most of us do (hi David)wink.gif, and i chose Grado.

LCD2-2 is my chosen headphone at the moment, still I always love to listen to my friend's PS1000. I don't think I will ever be buying one but...I really appreciate the sound this headphone:)

Actually, I was just going back and forth today between HE-400 and the Grado 325is. Stacker, you are right in that both of them are great headphones. This might not sound right but to my ears the Grado had a wider soundstage for cetain songs. I need to go back and listen more carefully. I am in the process of burning in the HE 400 and have never truly burnt in the Grado. However I find that for a certain volume level, the Grado is louder than the HE-400. I use the Bifrost/Asgard combo. Anybody have ideas why ?

Maybe Grados are more sensitive. Compare their specs.

Same reason why a a truck uses more fuel than a VW Beetle, difference in efficiency.
