I have been looking for some new headphones for a while know and I have jumped from more headphones then I care to mention.
My first plan was to get some ATH900X's but they had to be imported which I don't like.
Then some 700X's but they seemed like to much of a downgrade from the 900X's which would annoy me, then I moved onto the AKG K550's.
My Budget is under £200
But now at last I think I am going to get some Grado SR225i's, I think
But I have some questions first:
Will they be goof for my taste in music?
I listen to Queen, The Beatles, The Who and The Kinks. I also stray into 50's music such as Marty Robbins as well as Frank Sinatra and sometimes Johnny Cash. One important fact is that I listen to Queen and The Kinks on Vinyl
Are they as uncomfortable as people say?
What is the build quality like?
Also as non of my sources have a 6.3mm jack should I fork out for the Grado adapter or get a cheaper one as I know about the whole high end cable scam but I don't want to kill any sound quality.
I am up for suggestions on any other headphones as I will not be buying them for a month or two.
Thanks for reading and please help a new Head-Fi'er
