When I first heard the p5 I really liked them. I'm sure build quality had an influence. I was all ready to take the $300 plunge but thought I should at least check out what else there was at that price point. Enter the Grado 325is. I listened to both side by side and the grados made the p5 sound overly bass heavy and the detail was amazing. I went with the grados and now 2 weeks later I feel like I made a mistake. I miss the bass! The shop that sold them has offered an exchange but I just don't know what to do. Modding is intriguing but it is a one way street.
I know that part of my problem is source (pc or ipod) and I can't afford a DAC or dedicated amp. Did I just answer my own question? Will the p5's be more forgiving of my source?
Thank you so much for any advice.
