Are Grados One-Dimensional

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Every review on head-fi claims that the grados (only talking about the prestige series) really just a bunch of little one trick ponies.

If this isn't a troll (which it sounds like), you should go do more research. Obviously, a generalization like that means that you haven't read all the reviews rolleyes.gif

Nope, I've read em all, and this is a troll.biggrin.gif. I'm just frustrated because I have to buy a headphone NOW before I go on my trip. Gotta buy them today. Can't use my other cans for a numerous amount of reasons.

Anyway, when I said every review, I didn't mean EVERY, I meant most (exaggeration). These just seem like one of the types of cans you better try before you buy. I don't have a problem with this thread dyeing now. Just had to blow off some steam.

Of course. The have strong mids and highs. A colored sound. That with the fit of on ear headphones means that they don't suit everyone. That's different from a one trick pony, though.

You know, I've heard a lot of headphones, but I have yet to have heard a single sennheiser headphone. I've heard grado (had the sr80i) though. Would the 598 for instance be better for a warmer sound. I like the sound of sennheiser (not literally) but I just don't know if it'll have enough bass. I'd like to have a little more bass than the sr80i, somewhere around the MA900, or mdr 7506.
