Grado sound + Bass - Page 4

post #46 of 62
I think the people claiming they are overly bright are referring to the sr80 or sr325, that or they are used to headphones that don't put any emphasis in it. I am glad to hear you enjoyed demoing them! biggrin.gif

I actually saw the PS500 at a HIFI store. I would try it but it costs like $600.

Instead of the sr225i, I rebought the sr80i. My impressions are similar.

Much more bass than I remember, though the bass doesn't go down deep at all. Good tight bass.

Highs and mids are fatiguing. The vocals and instruments are thin. Sounds artificial. The main problem is the sound stage. Very tiny. It creates congestion, and they don't sound good loud. The do however sound fantastic at lower listening levels.

Overall disappointed. L-pads should help these things. When I push the pads closer on my ears, they sound much warmer, though I'm getting the feeling that these need an amp.

My ue6000 has a larger soundstage! Wow, and without the airy mids. Lol.

These are more comfortable though. (not more than the ue6000, just more than before)

Perhaps the problem is that my ma900's soundstage is too large. Everything sounds congested in comparison.

Damn that bass is good. I need no more bass! Can't imagine what the tape mod would do.

I think the punched holes help the bass more than the tape mod does, the tape mod adds a lot of warmth and 'fullness' to the vocals IMO. Considering it is a really easy mod with electrical tape and there are no negative effects to trying the tape mod, I recommend trying it if you are getting bowls anyway.

I said I was dissapointed but not by too much. Only $100 and the l cush should fix the problem if eq doesn't. Ill try not to use eq since they.are grados!

Did the tape mod. It helps out the mids and highs. The vocals still sound honky, but a slight decrease in volume at 2-4khz fixes it. Can't sense any more bass though.

Gotta love day 2!

Sounds like a fun holiday. :beerchug:

 

(If you ever want to experiment with the stock earpads, you can soften and smooth them by soaking them for 8-12 hours in lukewarm water with a little mild baby soap, rinse thoroughly with cold water, and dry in the open air on a towel for 4-5 hours.)

I have no problems with the comfort.

Just got the L-Cush pads today. It does improve the mids and highs, and there may be a slight loss of bass (the bass was almost a little too much before lol), and the soundstage improved slightly, but the difference isn't huge. They sound veeeeeeery similar to the SR225i right now.

Still need a, long listening session though.
