Hi i purchased a set of Grado sr325is cans for listening to music while studying, last year i bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 and begin listening to portable music again after many years of using a Approx $10k, pretty decent Mid-Fi stereo system at home. I thought that the IEM with the GS3 sound pretty damm good, so why are these Grados so flat and lifeless? I have powered them with my MacBook Pro Retina, GS3, and HDMI out from my PC to a Onkyo 5508 Processor. all sound about the same. I have the HiFi M8 on order to bypass the DAC and Amp in the GS3 and my IPad, will it help any or am i just expecting to much from headphones in general.
I have about 3 hours on them, will they get better?
would GS3 IEM sound > then sr325is.
