So I have wanted some grado's for a while, when I originally asked I was wondering between the lower prestige series and was told I should probably go for the 225i's minimum due to me already being use to higher end stuff (SRH-840's and D5000's) so I listened to some at a local place and didn't really decide on anything.
I was trying to decide between the 225 and 325's but I don't really like the 325's yeah there more detailed and I don't really find them harsh but they sound metallic and less musical, like the slap, buzz and picking of a guitar is more pronounced than the note that is being played.
I have heard Alessandro's are more tame in the highs so could I go with the MS2's and be happy? Or are they still closer to the 325i's than to the sound of the 225i's?
Now looking into the whole 325 vs 225 think I noticed most people think that the SR80 is just as good as the 225 and that the 125 and 225 are a waist of money and that the 325 is the nice upgrade but not liking it my self, should I jump to the RS2i? I can't afford the RS1i, if I had that kind of money it would be going to LCD 2's.
The other thing is I like bass especially when the boost is in the right spot like with grado's, and people have said that the 325i's have the most bass for grado's (not counting the PS models) but I don't really see it? looks like the RS2i's have more from graphs but it also makes them look just as bright at the 325i's which there not so FR graphs don't seem like a good thing to look at.
