Ugly ! yes I agree. But PS and GS 1000 are really good headphones.

I never had the high-end Grados but the entry level SR80i and I think it's pretty amazing for the price ($100 discount price at some point).

 

For GS/PS, I had many hours auditioning and they surpass LCD and HD800 in some area.

 

Unfortunately, I don't think I will ever buy PS at $1700 price tag, maybe for $1000 or low $1000s. ;)

i think the looks is nice on the MS2i, but just a little plain on the MS1i, but still looks okay.

To me, the entire Grado line is very striking. When you see a one, you know it's Grado.

 

That is to say I love the looks. I also love the sound. And it being open is a huge plus for public listening. Listening to your surroundings as well as music is very nice. Travel, on the other hand, is a big no-no. Try listening to a Grado on a plane... that would be a sight haha.

That is actually how i feel as well surprisingly, seems to make the music a little more transparent and spaceous.

I'm not a fan of the style but their retro look is a nice complement to a collection.

But do your surroundings want to listen to your music?

Tbh, I think that the some of the Fanny Wang knock-offs look even better than the beat headphones, though...

 

(Took this off an older thread) They look pretty okay on Mr. John Mayer's head with the shades and with the beanie... I'm not so sure otherwise :P

To me it looks like he's got a thick wooden pole through his head.

Way more appealing than the ordinary and mundane postmodern minimalist **** design of the beats line, or the trashy modern gypsy looks of the Vmoda's, etc. Grado, with their effortless art deco design, have some of the most fashionable cans you can encounter.

I really think so, dont you? These are 325is drivers in Alessandro ms2i cups.

I've seen a lot of people around my university wearing low end Grados (sr 60s or 80s).  Every one of them can in some way be associated to the stereotype of "hipster."  lol.  Well I guess when everyone is wearing Beats and you wear a open back, home-grown phone out into the public it does make you not mainstream.  Doesn't make you any smarter though.  But yes I think they are excessively ugly.
